Uphold is a multi-asset digital money platform offering financial services to a global market. Uphold's unique ‘Anything-to-Anything’ trading experience enables customers to trade directly between asset classes with embedded payments facilitating a future where everyone has access to financial services. Built on a core of proprietary technologies and e-money apps, Uphold embraces a future where people and businesses around the world have access to safe, transparent, fair, and affordable financial services.
Uphold is a digital money platform with more than 1.7 million customers globally and almost $6 billion in transactions to date. It serves both retail investors and businesses.
Leveraging blockchain technology, Uphold provides its customers with easy access to cryptocurrencies, national currencies, precious metals, yield/credit products, and soon crypto-backed debit cards. Customers can trade with low spreads, or send funds to virtually anyone, worldwide, free of charge, including payments to businesses and employees.
Uphold is unique in translating all supported asset classes into a common digital language, which means that any asset can be exchanged directly into any other asset, creating an easy and intuitive trading experience. This 'Anything to Anything' architecture cuts out unnecessary fees and complexity compared with other platforms relying on currency pairs, which would require an intermediate trade to exchange Mexican Pesos into XRP, for example. You can see this best on our iOS and Android Mobile Apps.
Businesses use Uphold to pay people around the world, or to accept customer payments in cryptocurrencies and convert them automatically into local currencies. Accounts can be funded via seven crypto networks, bank connections in around 40 countries, as well as debit and credit cards. The platform offers 27 national currencies, 30 cryptocurrencies (including three stablecoins), and four precious metals. Uphold is available through web, iOS and Android applications.
