Anchorage Digital Launches New Initiative for Building Crypto Products and Services
Today, we are pleased to roll out “Build With Anchorage Digital,” a new full-stack infrastructure offering that facilitates crypto payment gateways, financial products, and market participation. All of these services come with the added benefit of our operational national bank charter and world-class security solution, and today we reveal what we’ve been quietly building with a variety of early partners to illustrate the many ways fintechs to registered investment advisors are building with Anchorage Digital. As more institutions realize the power of Anchorage Digital’s APIs, we see today as the beginning of much larger crypto services expansion for companies outside the crypto industry itself.
APIs for Every Business
Build With Anchorage Digital fuels partner product and service development through a combination of our flexible APIs—which partners can connect to programmatically, including trading, settlement, staking, and custody APIs—and a dedicated team of industry-leading solution architects, integration engineers, and deployment strategists.
With the offering, Anchorage Digital fully embeds every part of the crypto product life cycle, from idea to implementation to meet clients’ goals. The hands-on partnership with Anchorage Digital allows clients to design and test their own bespoke crypto solutions, bring them to market, and plan for their long-term compliance needs post-rollout. We have been building with major partners in banking, fintech, and financial services to power their crypto businesses.
“Five years ago, Anchorage Digital was forged by the demand for secure crypto custody by institutional clients. Security is in our DNA, and we’ve built that layer into every use case we’re announcing today. Today’s financial services institutions not only want to custody their own crypto balance sheets with us, they want to offer crypto products to their customers or use crypto in novel ways. ‘Build With Anchorage Digital’ enables them to tap into the crypto economy. They see what we see: Every business will be a crypto business.”
—Diogo Mónica, Co-Founder and President of Anchorage Digital
As the first federally chartered digital asset bank in the U.S., Anchorage Digital has unparalleled experience with navigating the regulatory requirements and hurdles institutions face when looking to tap into the vast market potential of crypto. That makes us uniquely positioned to not only design crypto products, but ensure that they meet the heightened scrutiny of entering the industry.
Crypto Payment Gateways
Fintechs, payment companies, and banking cores select Anchorage Digital for tailored ways to bring crypto payments to their existing infrastructures.
Innovative fintechs including AngelList and Series Financial have selected Anchorage Digital to automate and integrate crypto services into their platforms. In August, we announced a partnership with AngelList to offer early-stage funding via the USDC stablecoin.
“Anchorage Digital’s infrastructure helps us implement USDC alongside fiat as a platform-wide option for early-stage investors—and that’s just the beginning for use cases on our platform.”
—Avlok Kohli, CEO, AngelList
Anchorage Digital APIs provide digital asset custody and trading services to SeriesFi’s institutional customers, helping SeriesFi expand their client offerings.
“As a Qualified Custodian, Anchorage Digital allows us to offer our customers compliant and regulated custody solutions, integrated directly into their banking.”
—Brexton Pham, CEO, Series Financial
Banking cores provide the infrastructure technology for bank customers to access easy-to-use interfaces for all of their banking needs. Today, more and more banking cores are looking to bring crypto offerings to meet growing retail customer interest in digital assets.
Anchorage Digital’s secure, regulated platform allows TAPP Engine to connect member credit unions and banks to crypto services.
“We are thrilled to partner with Anchorage Digital to integrate digital assets into our infrastructure, with the confidence of its highly secure environment.”
—Will Dolan, President and Head of Digital Assets / Cash Management, TAPP Engine Digital
Crypto Financial Products
Banks and financial services providers need sophisticated crypto collateral management to participate in lending services to private clients. Anchorage Digital offers crypto-collateralized mortgage lending for Moon Mortgage, where customers can use Bitcoin as collateral to secure a mortgage on a real property.
“Supporting the purchase of real estate through Bitcoin collateralized Mortgage lending is an important use case for digital assets. Anchorage Digital was the only crypto-native company with the regulatory framework and robust financing program to make this powerful new capability possible, and we are excited to partner with them.”
—Aaron Nevin, Founder and CEO, Moon Mortgage
Crypto Market Participation
SEC-registered investment advisors (RIAs) are subject to a number of fiduciary responsibilities and need custody and trading systems to effectively participate in digital assets. Anchorage Digital is pleased to help RIAs participate with a number of partners including MAYA, Oath Digital, Plutus21 Capital, and more.
“As investors in and users of blockchain infrastructure since 2017, we have an intimate understanding of the available platforms and their features. We selected Anchorage Digital as a partner for its regulatory backstop and strict controls, which enable us to offer a full range of blockchain services while keeping digital assets secure and accessible.”
—Hamiz Awan, Founder, Plutus21 Capital
“Anchorage Digital helps us achieve our mission of expanding our customers’ participation in digital assets in a highly secure, regulated environment.”
—Tanguy Chau, CEO, MAYA Financial
“Our expectations for partners are high, and Anchorage Digital has continually shown a commitment to meet our needs and help our family office and RIA investors access our digital asset investment strategies.”
—Ryan Goldman, Co-Founder, Oath Digital
Anchorage Digital is pleased to be the partner of choice for several innovative alternative trading system (ATS). Our ATS partners include Lynk, Prometheum, and Rialto Markets, and additionally, Oasis Pro Markets, which partnered with us in September 2021 to make on-chain settlement for crypto payments, allowing a streamlined way to use crypto in private markets.

LYNK is able to bring crypto asset managers access to global capital markets and reach accredited and institutional investors worldwide because of our ability to offer Anchorage Digital custody and trading via APIs."
