AGATE, the Future of Instantaneous Payments System:

Bitcoin introduced the payments arena and since then, a number of cryptocurrencies offer payments solutions. However, with their slow transaction speeds, the settlements are delayed that results in blocked assets clubbed with high transaction fees. Moreover, the volatile crypto-conditions, put an additional risk for the merchants accepting the cryptocurrencies as the same might decline in value leading to a loss for the recipient. In addition, a lot of platforms that offer crypto-based payment solutions, while charging high fees are simply not reliable or secure. AGATE recognized this problem and brought an innovative payments platform that addresses the concerns of the merchants while allowing lightning-fast speeds in transaction settlement periods.

When asked about the transactional throughputs, Hamed Taghvaei, Co-Founder and CEO, AGATE said “The very nature of cryptocurrency is its volatility. While such attribute impedes the acceptance of cryptocurrency, we’re building a platform where merchants can accept crypto-tokens without the volatility risk. Our near-instant transaction speeds with a throughput of over 17 million transactions per day is one of the highest standards in the crypto-market and merchants can instantly transfer the receipts into Fiat money eliminating the volatility risk.”

AGATE’s blockchain’s block size and block time are influenced by Ripple, Steem, and Waves-NG blockchains. Using similar principles of such developed technologies, AGATE blockchain features the fastest transaction settlement speed.

Using AGATE’s multi-cryptocurrency wallet app, which stores up to 17 different crypto-tokens, merchants on the platform have an option to accept varied cryptocurrencies as a mode of payment. With near-instant settlement speed, merchants are able to exchange their crypto holdings into Fiat currency instantaneously through the AGATE iFiat ecosystem, eliminating the volatility risk.
