Sila and Sequoir Create an Embedded Solution for Crypto Trading and Custody

Sila Inc., a fintech software platform that provides payment infrastructure as a service, today announced that it partnered with Sequoir, a provider of blockchain trading and custody infrastructure, to create custom blockchain solutions for businesses. This opens up new revenue streams for banks, credit unions, fintech, and the so-called Web 3.0. Sequoir's Partner API provides a simple and secure way to buy, sell and custody different digital assets. The Partner API enables Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other digital asset execution, settlement, and custody to be embedded quickly and with ease within a fintech app or financial institution.

Sila also provides know-your-customer (KYC) and know-your-business (KYB) verification tools. Sequoir and is customers benefit from these ID verification tools as it cuts down on fraudulent activities.

"Sila and Sequoir share a long history of working together and helping each other advance their services," said Justin Seidl, CEO and founder of Sequoir.
