We’re thrilled to announce the addition of the Solana network to our payment gateway! 

Starting today, SOL is available as a payment currency for our merchants. 

Alongside SOL, we’re also launching the USDC stablecoin on Solana, with plans to introduce USDT and possibly some exciting memecoins very soon.

Why Integrate Solana?

Solana is a high-performing blockchain known for its speed and efficiency, making it a popular choice in the crypto community. According to Coin98 Analytics, it is the 5th most popular blockchain right now with 868K active users daily!

By integrating Solana, we’re tapping into its promising technology and vast user base, which will lead to increased orders for our merchants. Its robust features and growing popularity make it a perfect fit for our expanding payment options.

“Bringing Solana into the CoinGate family is absolutely thrilling for both the Solana community and us. We expect our clients to feel the same, as Solana integration will bring more customers and boost orders. Knowing how prominent the Solana ecosystem is today, it might as well be a game-changer,” shares Dmitrijus Borisenka, our Co-Founder at CoinGate.

Solana Launch Details

Please note that SOL will be automatically enabled for all merchants on the launch day. 

To turn SOL payments on or off, click the edit icon on your chosen integration method and navigate to the “Currency Settings” tab.

Your customers can use any of the following wallets to make a payment with SOL using CoinGate:

  • Phantom
  • Solflare
  • Glow
  • Decaf Wallet
  • Espresso Cash
  • Ottr
  • Ultimate
  • Tiplink
