Launched in 2018 by Mr Oliver Marco La Rosa, Ms Irina La Rosa, Mr Alexander Pfau, Mr Sascha La Rosa and a small team, Globiance is a financial services group consisting of cryptocurrency exchanges and financial institutions situated globally. The platform features integrated individual bank accounts for each client while focusing on the user experience of buying and selling crypto combined with the ability to instantly withdraw fiat to the integrated accounts.
Globiance provides financial services for corporate and retail customers. Users can make payments to merchants with cryptocurrency using a credit card. The platform covers the exchange and trading of crypto and fiat currencies, stable coins in major currencies, payment solutions and worldwide transfers. The multi-currency wallet accounts include several currencies such as EUR, GBP, USD, SGD, HKD, THB, MYR, IDR, CNY, JPY, KRW, INR and many others.
With its Crypto Processing Gateway, clients can pay with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin instead of their credit cards. Useful for all businesses and very effective for high-risk industries, the Gateway can be utilized at lower fees, no risk, no rolling reserve, and offers definite transactions. It is available in a white-label version for the merchants and can be seamlessly integrated into their platforms.
In less than 3 years, Globiance is already operating in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, British Virgin Islands, Canada, Estonia, Hong Kong, Mauritius, Singapore and the USA. Until Q1 of 2022, the financial services group strives to launch as well in Germany, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, South Korea, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey and UAE.
In late July 2021, Globiance launched its house token GBEX that can be used across all Globiance platforms worldwide. It’s a 3rd generation token, that is based on the revolutionary XinFin XDC protocol. This future-proof technology allows it to handle more transactions, offer a faster confirmation time and lower fees, as well as consume less energy and support smart contracts. The token was designed deflationary so the supply is shrinking over time.
GBEX starts from a small price to allow every user to purchase the tokens. On the Globiance exchange platforms worldwide and in the crypto processing gateway, users can pay fees using the GBEX tokens and can benefit from discounts.
In GlobianceBank users have access to banking solutions with added possibilities of storing their funds across multiple accounts and jurisdictions to ensure safety and accessibility at any given time. Besides providing more and cost-efficient banking solutions demanded by clients in high-risk industries, Globiance will also allow users to trade securities as new features get launched on the platform.
About the Co-Founder and CEO
The Co-Founder and CEO of Globiance, Mr Oliver Marco La Rosa, is of German-Italian descent and had founded his first IT company by renting out game servers for Esports in 1999. Then he started an IT Support business. One of their biggest clients included CitiBank and they serviced the bank’s Frankfurt branch for over 8 years. The headquarter was later moved to Malta where for another 5 years they serviced more European banks such as IKANO Bank Group.
Mr La Rosa has over 13 years of experience in providing services to banks across Europe. With this immense knowledge of how the financial services industry works, Mr La Rosa’s family made a personal investment in the Globiance brand without any external financial support.
Mr La Rosa mentioned, “Since 2018, my vision has been to make Globiance a globally recognized and regulated brand allowing us to serve international retail and business clients. Having made a lot of progress already, we still have a long way to go to reach that goal. And I’m sure that we will get there with consistent diligence and persistence.”
He continued, “We believe in offering premium customer service and our team is always available to resolve any customer issues or queries. Globiance has a reputation for being a trusted financial services partner. Our business clients, who trust and appreciate our services, are our utmost rewards and hence, we continue to listen to their needs and demands closely.
