Invoices are key to keeping records of where a company’s crypto assets come, and go. They are also essential in ensuring everyone has their bills paid on time.

Request Finance enables you to see, manage, and pay all your crypto invoices in one place. Today, it is used by thousands of Web 3.0 companies to pay their suppliers, partners, contributors and team members in crypto. Since launching in 2021, over $175 million of cryptocurrency payments have been made through Request Finance. Of which, around $4.5 million in crypto invoices were paid last month in January alone.

Among the rapidly growing base of crypto projects, DAOs, and large companies using Request Finance are notable names in the Web 3.0 space like The Sandbox, AAVE, Chainstack, and MakerDAO.

It offers users the flexibility to choose from a growing list of over 70+ different currencies, and 10+ different blockchains to pay with.  

“Adding more tokens and blockchains as payment options in the Request Finance application allows our users to seamlessly do business across different ecosystems, and transact on networks like Arbitrum that are cheaper and faster”, said Ludovic Gilbert, Business Development Manager at Request Finance.

Arbitrum projects can also reach out to the Request Finance team to have their own tokens listed as a payment option in the Request Finance app.

About Arbitrum

Anyone who has used the Ethereum network, especially when interacting with DeFi protocols or other smart-contract-based projects, have firsthand experience with one of the network’s biggest hurdles: prohibitively expensive transaction fees.

One scaling solution with the best potential for easing congestion is optimistic rollups; a layer 2 scaling solution. A Layer 2 solution is a network that takes some of the processing work off the main (or Layer 1) Ethereum chain with the aim of improving performance.

Optimistic rollups can decrease the amount of time it takes to confirm a transaction, increase transaction throughput, and reduce gas fees. Optimistic rollups can offer up to 10-100x improvements in scalability dependent on the transaction.

Arbitrum Rollup is an Optimistic Rollup protocol developed by OffchainLabs for the Ethereum blockchain. It enables high-throughput, low cost smart contracts while remaining trustlessly secure.

From a user perspective, interacting with Arbitrum feels exactly like interacting with Ethereum. Built on top of, and secured by the Ethereum blockchain, all transaction data is logged on Ethereum. But transactions on Arbitrum cost a fraction of what they would if run natively on Ethereum, yet without compromising on security or decentralization.
