Comparison of Existing Blockchain
Platforms

Payment is one of the popular application areas in the blockchain era, and many innovative projects have emerged. They can be roughly divided into the following categories:

  • X-border remittance by working with traditional financial institutions: Ripple, Stellar;
  • Wallet issuers: Circle, Bitpay;
  • Providers for daily micropayments: Request, Nano;
  • Cryptocurrency acquiring aggregators: Coingate, Coinpayments,
    Pundix;
  • Decentralization ecosystem for crypto currencies: COTI, Graft;
  • Payment solutions focusing on unique use cases: Pumapay, uTrust

In order to be widely applied, payment platforms using blockchain technology must exceed the efficiency, comprehensiveness and levels of quality as compared with the multibillion dollar competitors in terms of user experiences, customer cases and operational support. With that said, it is difficult for existing blockchain payment products to meet this kind of commercial requirement because of their varied value propositions.
