About CoinGate

CoinGate is a payment gateway for blockchain payments. Having started off in 2014, we have made it our mission to grow adoption of cryptocurrencies on a global scale. With this in mind, CoinGate provides a reliable payments infrastructure that caters for the needs of both merchants and their customers: accessible, convenient and customer oriented.

To bridge the gap between cryptocurrency owners, who are looking for ways to use their coins for purchasing goods and services, and merchants, that can easily utilise the benefits of blockchain to grow their businesses, are among our top aims. The benefits of blockchain-based payments - cost-efficiency, speed, privacy and security - in our belief tackle a lot of shopper pain points and serve a huge number of business cases. As such, CoinGate was built with the same values at the core, satisfying both sides of commerce.
