Investment Opportunities

11/08/2019 By StarkPayments

Over the last eighteen months, Stark has been heavily involved in the research and development of a blockchain software platform that enables companies across multiple verticals, but in particular; Payment Providers, Acquirers, FinTech and Web Development companies, to accept new forms of digital currencies.

Having saved almost £265,000 by bootstrapping, the company has successfully developed a multi-cryptocurrency processing platform which can be targeted to in-store and online merchants throughout the World. All transactions are securely verified and stored on the blockchain which are tamper-proof ensuring enhanced transaction reporting for future auditing obligations.

As an early adoption company, one of the best ways of describing us could be an “early PayPal”. We welcome enquiries from potential investors who are looking for blockchain investment opportunities.
