Tech Innovators Lead the Charge to Ensure Bitcoin Adoption in El Salvador is a Success

The Bitcoin Alliance, a new alliance between Banco Hipotecario, TESOBE – the company behind the Open Bank Project – API3, Qredo and Sovryn will bring forth the next generation of Blockchain applications offering open banking solutions to provide financial inclusion to all in El Salvador. El Salvador’s groundbreaking Bitcoin Law entered into force on September 7, 2021, introducing unfamiliar challenges for traditional financial institutions as well as more specific consumer needs related to bitcoin storage and currency exchange. Together, leaders in the blockchain space will utilize their resources and knowledge to facilitate a smooth adoption of bitcoin as legal tender, ensuring citizens reap the benefits of digital banking and national infrastructure can handle this momentous change.

Banco Hipotecario, a national bank with a commercial focus, joined forces with the Open Bank Project and API3 to assess and facilitate solutions for Salvadorans and the financial service sector. The API3 and Open Bank Project 10-year partnership has set major ambitions to merge traditional and decentralized industries. With Banco Hipotecario, the joint-partnership hopes to realize the potential for end-to-end open digital systems.

The alliance has selected Qredo’s decentralized custodial infrastructure to power bitcoin banking solutions in El Salvador. Alongside this, Sovryn, the Bitcoin-native decentralized trading and lending platform will provide the infrastructure to enable traditional banks to offer Bitcoin-native DeFi products such as lending, trading and Bitcoin backed-stablecoins to their customers.

The collective aim is to accelerate the democratization of Bitcoin electronic payments and help citizens enjoy the benefits of digital and decentralized transactions. It will also support the nation’s larger financial framework to promote a smooth and effective integration of Bitcoin as legal tender, driving financial inclusion for Salvadorans.

The Bitcoin phenomenon is propagating across Latin America. By leveraging Qredo’s revolutionary crypto infrastructure, which is entirely compatible with the Bitcoin Lightning Network used in El Salvador, combined with Sovryn’s ability to build on bitcoin, TESOBE’s APIs and API3’s Airnode, this alliance will support El Salvador’s seamless transition into a crypto-friendly financial services system.

“We are super excited and grateful for the opportunity to assemble this advanced Crypto Banking infrastructure, which will act as the foundation for a new breed of financial services in El Salvador,” says Simon Redfern, CEO of TESOBE and founder of the Open Bank Project. “Our combined technologies will help Banco Hipotecario deliver more transparent and inclusive financial services to Salvadorans – especially the underbanked part of the population – and will remove many of the uncertainties that stand between El Salvador and the advantages of cryptocurrency adoption.”

“API3 is incredibly excited to announce this alliance and we can’t wait to see the synergies between these leading technologies in action. As the world’s financial system is modernized, we will help build a foundation for the future of digital banking that can easily be adapted to fit the needs of those who will benefit from it most,” says Heikki Vänttinen, Co-Founder at API3.

“We are glad to get in at the ground zero of global bitcoinization,” says Anthony Foy, Qredo CEO. “Qredo brings the scalability and instant settlement to underpin bitcoin banking infrastructure, making it possible to adopt crypto assets securely on a national scale, with none of the governance limitations imposed by private keys.”

Edan Yago, core contributor at Sovryn, commented: “With its adoption of Bitcoin, El Salvador has chosen to rewrite the script of its national finance system and to blaze a trail for other nations to follow. DeFi is now coming to the world and Sovryn is playing a crucial part in these early practical steps towards making Bitcoin adoption a reality in El Salvador and beyond.”
