What challenges led Chainstack to use Request Finance?

As a Web3-native company, we saw a high demand for customers requesting to pay in cryptocurrency. Unfortunately, crypto payments are still not widely accepted on mainstream payment gateways. 

We wanted to be able to serve customers that run their businesses entirely in cryptocurrency, but there was no easy way to do it at scale - until we learned about Request. The ability to pay invoices in crypto with just a click of a button in Request Finance, made it easy for us to extend this option to our customers. 

How has Chainstack benefited from using Request Finance?

We are always looking for better ways to improve the efficiency of our operations. Using Request has helped our finance and operations team streamline our internal payment operations when we invoice and receive payments in crypto. The invoicing tools have helped us automate various processes such as compliance and accounting. 

Being able to integrate with our suite of product customisation options has also made Chainstack more desirable to customers that have specific requirements. It’s also allowed us to offer crypto payment options to a wider group of Web3 developers and projects. This has allowed us to serve various projects and customers that deal entirely using cryptocurrency that we wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. 


What made Request Finance stand out from alternatives?

Our product, sales, and operations teams came together to review Request Finance. We unanimously agreed that it would be the best option that would benefit all our different internal functions. 

Request Finance was the first option and last option we explored, because it was a perfect fit for our needs. We love how it seamlessly integrates with our internal operational processes. It has been a very intuitive, easy to use solution that is both robust and comprehensive in its features.

How long did it take to get up and running?

We started using Request in April 2021 after The Graph Foundation paid out a grant to Chainstack via Request Finance. The onboarding process was very simple and intuitive, allowing us to get started in no time. 

Our experience working with the Request team, and using Request Finance exceeded our expectations. We are looking forward to new features and updates that will enable us to provide a better product experience and customized solutions that fit the changing demands of our community of builders and developers.

Managing your crypto transactions has never been that easy.
