Today, we’re excited to announce that the C14 widget has now integrated the Hedera network, enabling users to access digital assets like HBAR and hUSDC using the most adopted fiat payment methods in their country.
On Hedera, the HBAR token has double utility - fuelling the network, and securing it through network staking. The other supported coin on C14, hUSDC by Circle, is a crucial component of the TradFi and DeFi ecosystems. By enabling users to easily onramp this asset, the door is opened to new users.
As more Web2 market participants look to enter the realm of Web3, the infrastructure must be in place to enable users to purchase the assets that fuel and interact with these DLT networks without any friction.
By integrating the C14 widget, any Hedera project can now offer HBAR and hUSDC onramps from within their website or dApp. Projects can integrate the widget by contacting C14 to request onboarding. Once integrated, users can then purchase Hedera digital assets from within the United States, Canada, Brazil, and European Union.
The C14 on-ramp is currently available in the USA, EU, Canada, and Brazil. By the end of Q1, C14 is expected to be live in Mexico, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the UK - enabling them in their mission to expand globally and serve underserved markets.
One of the first Hedera ecosystem projects to publicly integrate C14, the global HeliSwap Decentralized Exchange (DEX), now offers seamless fiat-to-crypto on-ramping from within their dApp.
You can learn how to use the widget to purchase HBAR or hUSDC here.
