Why build on Request

Request is a decentralized network that allows anyone to request a peer-to-peer payment (invoices, salaries, expenses) and be paid in a secure way. All of the information is stored in a decentralized authentic ledger. Request is blockchain agnostic, and integrates with 10+ blockchains.

Key Features

  • Blockchain-agnostic: Different payment scenarios are already deployed and used on 10+ EVM blockchains as well as Near.
  • Invoice on blockchain: The only decentralized network where everyone can broadcast invoices on a public ledger. (access to real-time accounting)
  • Data Encryption: Encryption allows ownership of data & payment requests broadcasted on the network can be encrypted end-to-end, with flexible access permissions system.
  • Composable: Web3 companies speak the same payment language, composability is key for the rest of the finance and accounting stack.
  • Real-time account-receivables/payables: Eliminate the time and resource-intensive reconciliation exercise for accounting and audit.
  • Verifiable payment behavior and reputation: Onchain payment pattern and credit history improves the confidence of vendors.
  • Easiest way to pay a fiat amount: With payment requests denominated in fiat, everyone can use conversion to crypto made on payment with on-chain price oracles.
  • APIs: Use our API keys as a payment gateway and compliant invoicing solution. ( See how RealT, the real estate platform, allows customers to pay in stablecoins using Request API)
