New Delhi, September 19, 2023 — In a strategic effort to bolster the worldwide adoption of Web3 solutions, the Algorand Foundation announces an investment by Algorand Ventures in Onramp.money, a fiat-to-crypto onramp solution originating from India.
Onramp.money, a fiat-to-crypto onramp and offramp solution provider, has recently expanded its services into several jurisdictions across the globe, including Vietnam, the UAE, Turkey, and Mexico.
In the evolving digital landscape, Onramp.money's consistent growth underscores the demand for solutions that seamlessly connect traditional financial systems with the Web3 ecosystem.

We see India as a beacon of innovation.” said Anil Kakani, VP & India Country Head at Algorand Foundation.
"It's not just about numbers. Our partnership with industry leaders like Metamask, Ledger, Circle, JumpTrade, TON, Avalanche, Arbitrum, and now Algorand speaks volumes about our mission. We are excited to be gearing up to roll out our services in over twenty leading markets before the year concludes. This trajectory is a testament to Onramp.money's capabilities, resilient infrastructure, and commitment to simplifying the blockchain realm for millions globally," commented Gaurav Dahake, CEO, Onramp.money.
