Earlier in March, Elrond Network acquired Twispay, a Romanian payments company, with the approval of the country’s central bank, the Romanian National Bank, to issue electronic money.

As previously reported by Somanews, Elrond Network (EGLD) has recently acquired Utrust, a leading crypto payment product. This acquisition aims to allow Elrond Network to change the game in e-commerce and cross-border payments, as the Utrust offering package includes instant transactions, buyer protection and crypto-to-cash.

To a large extent, Elrond Network hopes to improve its services for traders who accept both cryptocurrency and fiat. With the mechanisms of Utrust, Elrond will offer almost instant payments with almost zero fees.
