Fortress Trust is a prominent custodial trust company in the blockchain infrastructure space. Astra is a top provider of infrastructure for faster payments. The two companies have combined their top-notch solutions to provide customers with a faster, more secure, and efficient payment solution for Web3 and cryptocurrency products.

The partnership between Astra and Fortress will allow developers to integrate a fiat-to-cryptocurrency payment flow using a single API, leveraging Astra’s proficiency in faster payments and Fortress’ proficiency in Web3 finance.

It aims to provide businesses with flexibility and ensure that the process is secure, fast, and easy for users.

Their business can achieve enhanced transactional control, unmatched security, and scalability through this.

“Through collaboration with Gil and the Astra team, we aim to further enhance a payment platform that has the potential to transform the industry,” said Scott Purcell, CEO and Founder of Fortress. Our partnership will merge the strengths of both domains to offer customers a smooth and safe payment system that meets the demands of the digital economy and the Web3 platforms that are influencing its development.
