Who is Fiant?

Fiant is the first financial institution purpose-built for new economies with full regulatory clearance in all the jurisdictions where it operates, including a New York BitLicense and money transmitter licenses across the U.S. and Canada. Our technology allows us to connect to other financial institutions worldwide to provide a harmonious experience for customers making transactions in a borderless, digital world.

The company was formed in 2018 as part of a start-up project that spawned the gaming platform Forte.io and a number of creator-focused blockchain companies. These companies needed Fiant because existing financial institutions did not provide the embedded, secure, end-to-end solution that their 21st century business models demanded.

Our plug-in provides regulated services “a la carte” to companies whose economies are already operating in the digital space. We offer payment on-ramps for fiat and crypto, the facility to enable NFT transactions as well as safely store funds and digital assets, and the power to easily monetize virtual activities. From gaming platforms and social networking apps to virtual reality environments, our integration allows businesses to deliver a frictionless experience that minimizes fraud and money laundering, while adhering to the complexities of financial services compliance.
