July 12, 2021 | 3 min read

Empowered Farmers, Fulfilled Investors
Cropital is the first crowdfunding platform that enables anyone to make low-cost sustainable agricultural investments. Investors can choose the farms they wish to invest in through Cropital’s website. Once the funding goals are met, farmers will be provided with the resources to improve their production. Investors will then receive the amount they invested and their share of the net profit once the crops are sold.

Cropital CEO Ruel Amparo believes that everyone can impact lives and grow their money at the same time. Through Cropital, investors’ gain returns range from 3% to 30% in less than 6 months.

Accommodating Investors of the Next Generation
Since 2015, multiple popular platforms such as Wefunder and Kickstarter have decided to accept crypto payment to acquire the pool of Bitcoin owners in the market. “The investment landscape is fast changing with cryptocurrency becoming something that cannot be overlooked by the company,” said Mr. Ruel. It is estimated that by 2027, 10% of the world GDP will be stored in blockchain technology. With the tremendous growth of the cryptocurrency community, offering crypto payments is the way forward to bring in more funding.

As more people hold onto cryptocurrencies to diversify their investment portfolios, businesses are looking for ways to capture these customers and provide them with more payment options.  “Crypto payments, without a doubt, is a relevant form of payment now, and we see potential growth of 20% on Cropital crowdfunding platform after adding crypto payments,” added Mr. Ruel.

TripleA, the Best Crypto Payment Gateway
When choosing which company Cropital should work with to run this new payment channel, TripleA emerged as the most suitable service provider. The company complies with anti-money laundering regulations and is regulated by MAS, Singapore Central Bank, making them the most trustworthy partner. With zero price volatility risk, a highly competitive exchange rate, and a no charge-back payment system, TripleA ensures that Cropital investors enjoy a seamless crypto payment process.

“I’m glad that TripleA has contributed to the enhancement of the agriculture community,” said Eric Babier, CEO of TripleA. “Given that varied businesses such as Cropital and big brands such as Paypal and Microsoft are embracing crypto payments, we warmly welcome more businesses to accept crypto.”

With the addition of crypto payments, Mr. Ruel foresees more farmers gaining support from the crowdfunding platform.
