We are thrilled to announce that Request Finance is now available to users on the Fantom network!
Request’s fast and simple app to generate, track, and pay invoices will now be available to the rapidly expanding community of users transacting on Fantom. Data from Fantom’s blockchain explorer, FTMscan, showed that the number of unique addresses reached a new all-time high of over 410,000.
Fantom CEO, Michael Kong, said:
“The Request Network brings much-needed invoicing and payment solutions to Fantom. Users and enterprises already using our networks for billing and payments will instantly appreciate the speed and simplicity that Request brings. It is fast, easy-to-use, and cost-effective.”
Today, more than 600 businesses globally use Request to process their daily invoicing and payments using crypto. From just a year ago, over US$100m in crypto invoices have been generated and paid using Request Finance to date. Founded in 2017 by Y Combinator alumni, Request has grown to become the leading provider of SaaS payment tools for leading DeFi companies like AAVE and MakerDAO.
The Fantom Foundation which oversees the core development work on the protocol will also be using Request Finance to manage payments which it makes to its contributors and community members each month.
“The team at Fantom Foundation used to spend many hours a month just on managing and accounting for crypto payments. With Request, we now spend only far fewer hours processing almost US$100k in payments monthly, and we anticipate that this number will go up.”, said Michael.
Christophe Fonteneau, Head of Strategic Partnerships & Business Development at Request commented: “We are delighted that Fantom has made our technology available to their community. We hope the wider community of Fantom users can experience the sheer ease of managing payments with Request for themselves”.
