  • Buy: Access 70+ cryptocurrencies, including BTC, ETH and SOL
  • Sell: Easily sell 20+ cryptocurrencies, including BTC, ETH and SOL, into your bank account
  • Swap crypto cross-chain across the BTC, ETH and SOL ecosystems 
  • Checkout: Buy NFTs with your credit and debit card across 40+ blockchains 

“MoonPay remains committed to simplifying the cryptocurrency transaction process in a compliant way, not only in Louisiana but across the United States,” said Thom Hook, Chief Compliance Officer at MoonPay. “We will continue to work closely with regulatory bodies to foster innovation while ensuring consumer protection and compliance with local regulations.” 

To date, MoonPay's proactive approach to compliance has earned us 44 Money Transmitter Licenses in addition to the Louisiana VCBA, allowing us to operate in diverse markets across the U.S.
