Faster, more secure, extensible and affordable payments worldwide.
Built to solve universal payments infrastructure problems.
The payments infrastructure is broken. Mica was founded to solve a problem affecting every business or individual taking or receiving payments today.
More secure. Faster. Cheaper.
Today’s legacy payments infrastructure is based on 1970s technology that is inflexible, brittle and expensive. The companies running this technology have eschewed innovation because they cannot build upon it.
Built to support everyone.
Mica provides value to all participants: retailers, banks, fintechs, consumers, loyalty providers, crypto exchanges. Anyone who wants to leverage the power of our network to move value can do so safely, quickly and at a fixed rate price the legacy systems cannot match.
