18 octombrie 2021

Elrond Network announced that ZeroHash, the leading regulated digital asset settlement platform that can operate in 51 US jurisdictions, has added native EGLD support for settlement, custody and liquidity services.

As a result, „almost 400 million people in the US, as well as financial institutions and regulated platforms, have access to EGLD in a fully compliant manner,” according to a company’s blog.

The integration went live over the weekend and our payment processor partners have started the integration process to allow US customers access to EGLD via card payments and bank transfers,” said Daniel Serb, Head of Business Development at Elrond Network.

„The ZeroHash integration clears a compliant path for close to 400 million people in 51 US jurisdictions to get access to EGLD via our existing fiat on-ramp partners, as well as provide the infrastructure to enable rapid growth in the US markets for compelling products built with internet-scale blockchain technology.” said Beniamin Mincu, Elrond Network CEO.

“We’re really excited to integrate with an innovative network such as Elrond. Their tech is exceptional and they’ve put a lot of effort into building tools. I’m confident this project will be an important component of the wider ecosystem in the near future.” said Erik Schluter, VP of Engineering at Zero Hash.


Elrond is the internet-scale blockchain, designed from scratch to bring a 1000-fold cumulative improvement in throughput and execution speed. To achieve this, Elrond introduces two key innovations: a novel Adaptive State Sharding mechanism, and a Secure Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism. Thus, Elrond can process upwards of 15,000 transactions per second (TPS), with 6-second latency, and negligible cost, attempting to become the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, globally accessible internet economy.
