Elrond Bets Big On Web3 Payments In 2022 With The Acquisition Of Leading Crypto Payments Provider Utrust
With the acquisition of Utrust, Elrond sets out to accomplish two goals:
Payments: make payments faster, cheaper and more secure by using internet-scale blockchain technology
Merchant Yield: transform payment processing services from a cost for merchants into an income stream.
By acquiring Utrust, the world’s first crypto payment solution to offer instant transactions, buyer protection and crypto-to-cash settlements, Elrond together with Utrust intend to revolutionize ecommerce and payments.
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.
