MooPay is building a blockchain payment gateway to democratise crypto payments – YourStory

Increasing cyber-attacks on cryptocurrency exchanges across the world have turned crypto users to opt for non-custodial wallets for security. 
But for non-native crypto users, non-custodial wallets are often “difficult to comprehend” or “too technical”. However, emerging blockchain startups are working to provide a convenient user experience while maintaining decentralisation as a primary premise.
One such startup is MooPay — a simple and crypto user-friendly payment gateway. 
The no-code, non-custodial, and multi-chain payment gateway was co-founded in 2021 by Ajay Pal Singh and Kamaljeet Singh.
MooPay supports seven different chains, and the founders believe that in the future, crypto payment gateways will be either multi-chain or cross-chain, enabling various options for users.
As batchmates, Ajay and Kamal worked together on several projects while pursuing their BTech from the DR BR Ambedkar National Institute of Technology in Jalandhar, Punjab. 
In 2017, Ajay’s interest in blockchain stemmed during the Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) boom.
The duo, who had previously co-founded startups, teamed up again in 2021 to pursue their passion for blockchain and launched MooPay, which offers a crypto payment experience to users. 
Led by Indian co-founders with headquarters in Canada, the startup has 11 members in its team.
MooPay is a non-custodial wallet where users have custody of their wallets on a non-custodial exchange platform.
MooPay has both Web2 and Web3 features — an interface similar to most Web2 payment gateways and accepting crypto payments from customers through Web3 features. 
MooPay competes with other non-custodial wallets, including Ledger, Exodus, Trezor one, and Electron. However, it stands apart as it acts as a payment gateway and a payment processor for online transactions.
Ajay says merchants don’t require specific coding skills to integrate MooPay. With its Quickpay button, users can conveniently buy and sell.

It also has software development kits (SDKs) and intends to build multiple apps and products on top of MooPay.
