Transak supports on-ramp to Matic layer 2 sidechain in collaboration with Wyre

You can now buy tokens on the Matic layer 2 sidechain directly with fiat bank transfer or card payment. This is huge because:

  • There are zero gas fees!
  • Transaction settlement is instant after the fiat payment is complete.
  • You have access to awesome applications built on top of the Matic Network.

Some examples of apps you can use on the Matic network with Transak are Polymarket, Decentraland, and Matic Wallet.

The supported tokens on Matic so far are: MATIC, USDC, DAI, USDT, and MANA.

Matic has been getting phenomenal adoption since its mainnet went live in Beta. Currently, we believe that it is one of the fastest-growing Dapp platforms just by judging the amount of requests we have from the Dapps to provide direct onramps to Matic Layer2. We believe that Matic is one of the front runners in the Layer2 race has a good chance to solve some of the scalability woes of Ethereum

Transak has partnered with Wyre, who is powering card payments in countries all over the world. Wyre is a leading fiat infrastructure provider in crypto. Wyre has an established network of relationships with leading banks and exchanges. Using Wyre’s API, Transak has added credit and debit card payments in over 60 countries.

Transak integrates fiat payment methods from around the world such as bank transfers in the UK, Europe and India, and card payments in over 60 countries. It has a direct interface with Matic Network to send tokens on layer 2 with zero gas fees to your wallet.

Users can then use apps in the Matic ecosystem. For the full list of apps, see here: https://matic.network/dapps

You will need a Matic wallet for this (you can use your existing Ethereum wallet) — get set up at https://wallet.matic.network/. Now head to https://global.transak.com, change your cryptocurrency, and change the network to ‘MATIC NETWORK’.

Now, when you follow the steps to buy on Transak, the crypto will be delivered directly on the Matic sidechain to your wallet.

You can easily integrate Transak by copying and pasting the code for the widget into your application. There are many parameters to configure properties such as, styling, wallet address, default currency, and more. Find the widget docs here: http://integrate.transak.com/

Developers who want to build their own UI can use the backend API. Find the docs here: https://transak.stoplight.io/

Integrating with Matic is as simple as repointing your RPC to the Matic Mainnet.

Developers can deploy their existing Ethereum apps on Matic in under 15 minutes thanks to 100% EVM Compatibility. We often say, if you’re an Ethereum Developer, you’re already a Matic Developer!
