  • Stripe will add support for the Avalanche C-Chain, allowing users to buy AVAX directly.
  • Avalanche’s native wallet, Core, now integrates this functionality, facilitating wallet funding with various payment methods.
  • The integration aims to solve the “cold start problem” in web3, offering users a frictionless entry into the Avalanche ecosystem through Stripe.

Stripe, a platform dedicated to providing financial infrastructure services, has announced that it will support the Avalanche C-Chain, according to a statement recently shared. The integration will allow retail users to buy AVAX directly through Stripe without the need to use any exchanges.

Avalanche’s native wallet, Core, developed by Ava Labs, has integrated this new functionality. Now, users can fund their wallets using various payment methods, such as ACH transfers, debit cards, and credit cards.

The integration aims to address the “cold start problem” faced by many web3 companies, where users may lack sufficient funds in their wallets to transact on the platform. Stripe provides a comprehensive solution by handling identity verification, payments, fraud prevention, and regulatory compliance, offering users a frictionless entry point into the Avalanche ecosystem.

Additionally, Stripe offers a customizable widget that can be embedded in various decentralized applications (dApps) on AVAX, such as decentralized exchanges (DEXs), non-fungible token (NFT) platforms, and digital wallets. This enables users to transact directly from these applications using Stripe as a fiat-to-crypto bridge.
