IOV Labs and Buenbit have partnered to bring the Rootstock and RIF ecosystem to mainstream users. Buenbit users will gain access to Everyday DeFi products and services secured by the Bitcoin network.
Both companies view this as a significant step forward in many ways. Buenbit integrates the Rootstock Blockchain and the RIF Product Suite into its core offerings. As a result, Buenbit’s end-users gain direct access - without leaving their trusted Buenbit app - to highly secure censorship-resistant Bitcoin-based payments, savings, and borrowing services. A fast and smooth integration is guaranteed by leveraging the RIF Product Suite, Rootstock’s EVM compatibility and IOV Labs’ white glove support. As a result, this comprehensive partnership will allow both companies to better serve their end users in Latin America.
RIF technology makes Everyday DeFi a reality. In practice, Everyday DeFi is the action of seamless payments for small businesses; inflation-proof savings; remittances that allow capital movement easily and at low cost, and loans that give access to finance for fundamental economic growth. All are denominated in stablecoins and available through user-friendly interfaces.
As part of the integration, all Rootstock native tokens will be made available through the Buenbit platform, including RBTC, RIF token, and RDOC.
IOV Labs President and COO Daniel Fogg add:
“In these challenging economic times, people in countries like Argentina, Peru, and Colombia want to use crypto to pay their bills, receive their salary, send money overseas, and lend/borrow at fair rates in a safe, secure way, all using real stablecoins. This is the era of Everyday DeFi. We believe RIF Technology running on Rootstock is the best way to build for Everyday use cases due to its interoperability, low cost, and inherent security. We are expanding the types of products Buenbit can offer and helping Buenbit do what they do best - Everyday DeFi. We are thrilled to enter this strategic partnership with Buenbit.”
Federico Ogue, CEO of Buenbit, commented, “Thanks to the integration with IOV Labs, we will be able to keep working on creating simpler and friendlier solutions so that our users will incorporate more effective ways of handling their finances.”
