STYRA is Europe’s first Interledger solutions provider enabling interoperability between various payment systems all over the world and sourcing on-demand liquidity for those payment systems. We are a fast growing and also funded High-Tech start-up that is leading the way towards interoperability in global payments.

What we do

Solutions for Blockchains

Our solutions are aimed at making cross-currency transactions in a trustless environment possible for exchanges and crypto wallets. By using the Interledger Protocol Suite, micro payments of various crypto currencies can be transfered in a blink of an eye.

Solutions for Payment Providers

The world has many payments schemes. From online wallets  to Mobile Money. These are oftentimes isolated and disconnected. By using ILP we aim at directly linking  payment providers. We are building a seamless experience and hence creating unprecedented interoperability.
