When talking about cryptocurrencies, the things that immediately come to mind are crypto wallets, exchanges and direct conversions of fiat <> crypto. Crypto is only a direct investment mechanism, though: it can be used to purchase stuff, and many game developers are using cryptocurrencies for their in-game mechanics.

Few of us imagined 2020 the way it’s turned out. For one, we have all been affected by the pandemic and are only now beginning to comprehend the repercussions it will have on global markets in the near future.
Crypto in 2020 resembles the Internet of the early 1990s. Promising but very hard to navigate. Although there’s a lot of progress in terms of UX with mobile wallets, social recovery and nicer UIs, we haven’t yet had the Mosaic moment of crypto. Mosaic was the Internet browser that led to the 1990s Internet boom.
At Ramp we believe better user experience is the key to enable breakthrough use cases in crypto, as well as to let existing crypto products grow.
Revolut is scoring all the highest marks when it comes to a great experience in financial services, so obviously it was huge news when cryptocurrency support was announced. However, despite the pleasant UX and competitive fees (even with last week’s increase from 1.5% to 2.5%), buying crypto in Revolut might not be the best idea ever. Why?
Today we launch the first version of Ramp Oracle — an Intel SGX based solution for trustless fiat-to-crypto settlement. We consider this release to be a major milestone in developing some of our ideas previously presented in “The future of on-ramps is peer-to-peer”.
