Pitaka integrates Transak and Unstoppable Domains to make buying crypto easier
Transak and Unstoppable Domains will seamlessly integrate within the Pitaka, the digital wallet developed by Filipino-led web3 firm Tetrix, providing customers with a simple and convenient way to buy crypto.
10 January 2023, Manila, Philippines – Users of the digital wallet Pitaka can now purchase cryptocurrencies directly with Philippine Peso and pay using their debit cards, credit cards, GCash, Maya, GrabPay, and ShopeePay within the app. Tetrix, the Filipino-led web3 company behind the digital wallet, has announced its partnership with Transak as its fiat on-ramp support.
Pitaka is a self-custodial digital wallet that allows users to store their crypto assets and interact with NFT marketplaces, play and earn games, decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), and decentralized finance (DeFi) applications. With Transak’s integration, users do not have to switch to another service and go through many intermediate steps to buy crypto.
Transak is a Web3 onboarding infrastructure provider that enables applications to accept fiat-to-crypto deposits from a global user base. It is known for its API-driven solutions that enable web3 platforms to onboard users to more than 130 crypto assets from more than 125 countries and is backed by top venture capital investors including Consensys and Animoca Brands.
“Transak is a trusted and reliable provider of fiat on-ramp services with a track record of successful partnerships with leading cryptocurrency companies. The integration of Transak’s fiat on-ramp is a key step in Pitaka’s mission to make it easy for users to buy, sell, and use cryptocurrencies,” said Ralph Acabado, Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Tetrix.
“Self-custody wallets are on the rise as more people become aware of the importance of keeping their assets safe. They offer a high level of security, sovereignty, privacy, and control over their money and private financial information. Pitaka, now integrated with Transak, makes it even easier for customers to access crypto and Web3 with peace of mind,” he said.
“We’re glad that we are able to provide new payment methods for Pitaka, and we hope more and more users benefit from this as we strive to make onboarding easier and more seamless for mainstream adoption,” said Etienne Gandon, Business Development Analyst at Transak.

Custom wallet address names
To make crypto transactions simpler and more intuitive, Tetrix has also teamed up with NFT domain provider Unstoppable Domains to give users a new feature where they can use human-readable domain names when buying or sending crypto assets.
Unstoppable Domains is a platform that allows users to create and use a special kind of website address called “crypto domains.” These domains are stored on a blockchain, which means they can’t be taken down or censored by anyone and belong to their holders forever.
Instead of having to share a long and confusing wallet address, Pitaka users can purchase crypto wallet address names provided by Unstoppable Domains and use them to send and receive crypto or other digital assets.
“NFT domains provide a secure and user-friendly way to store and manage non-fungible assets on the blockchain. Because they are stored on the blockchain, they are resistant to censorship and control by any single entity, and they can’t be lost or stolen like physical assets can. Additionally, because they use a standard domain name format, they are easy for users to understand and use,” Acabado explained.
“Pitaka is committed to providing a seamless and secure experience for its users, and our partnership with Transak and Unstoppable Domains is an important part of this effort. We want to provide Pitaka users with an easy and convenient way to transact with cryptocurrency and to promote the use of decentralized technologies such as blockchain and cryptocurrency,” he added.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Tetrix and Pitaka to give more people ownership and control of their identity,” said Sandy Carter, Senior Vice President and Channel Chief at Unstoppable Domains.
The Tetrix Network is a project that began in 2020 as an effort to change the way blockchains are designed and developed for the digital space where communities, enterprises, governments, and individuals interact and coexist in the same ecosystem without having to worry about different blockchains. It is a collection of projects that build the products, tools, and infrastructure for resilient, sustainable, and inclusive communities. Designing and building for security, equality, and the sovereignty of individuals.
Secure your wealth from external threats like inflation, seizure, and censorship. Pitaka allows you to safely and easily manage and transact with your assets, giving you peace of mind and financial freedom.
