What they do
- Wyre is on a mission to bring crypto to the masses – they are building the infrastructure that will be used to build the future.
- For visionary developers who want to build the next great crypto company, Wyre is the crypto stack that brings together the most powerful payment APIs in one place. Unlike other fiat-to-crypto solutions and traditional payment platforms, Wyre offers a versatile system of crypto-compliant tools that are easy to integrate, flexibly scalable, and fully secure – so anyone, from MVP to millions of users, can build.
- What Shopify did for e-commerce, Wyre is doing for crypto.
- To accomplish this mission, the company has built a simple set of tools that allow developers to materialize their projects. Wyre’s fiat-to-crypto Checkout gateway is now being used by thousands of applications (like MetaMask, OpenSea, Maker, and BRD) to offer the easiest way to convert card payments into crypto. Flexible White-Label Payment and Crypto APIs (Transfers API, Custody API, and Users API) also enable developers to build e-wallets, merchant processing services, and money transfer platforms from the ground up.
- Wyre is the leading infrastructure provider in crypto. After trading over $3.5 billion in cryptocurrency assets and completing over $750 million in bank-to-bank FX payments, Wyre has an established network of relationships with leading banks and exchanges. Using Wyre’s API, customers are able to instantly convert fiat to crypto globally in over 120 countries, in 30 different fiat currencies, and over 100+ cryptocurrencies. Wyre focuses on compliance, licensing, liquidity, banking, and payment processing services so that partners can do what they do best – creating amazing tools on the blockchain.
- Wyre was established in 2013 and is led by Founder, Ioannis Giannaros. The company most recently completed Series C funding in late 2021 and has raised $55M to date. Headcount has tripled over the last year and the company is in super high growth mode – below are some quick stats from their last year:
- Reached $100M+ ARR in Q4 2021
- Grew from $5.8M in revenue in 2020 to $53M in 2021, 813% y/y growth
- 138 partners at the end of 2020 to 1,486 at the end of 2021, 980% y/y growth

- ~220k wallets @ end of 2020 to ~2.9M wallets today – 1223% y/y growth
- Wyre is currently in the process of raising its next round of funding (to be completed in early-2022), which will help support the company’s advancing initiatives through this period of hyper-growth.
