How it works

Disrupting the low interest rate banking sector with smart DeFi based financial services that offer high interest rates.

The Paycer App will provide easy access to crypto and DeFi for retail clients. The app will also offer traditional financial services like a bank account and a debit card. Users will gain access to diferent investment assets and automated saving plans to generate a passive income.

We are mainstreaming Decentralized Finance.

  • Customer-First-Strategy


    Our primary goal for the platform is to provide clean user interfaces and very simple processes that fully meet the requirements of our customers. This should empower everyone to use the benefits of DeFi without any prior knowledge or dealing with cryptocurrencies.

  • High Interest Rate

    Paycer will evaluate DeFi product risks and smart contract code before investing any assets. The Paycer Protocol will also automate multiple risk checks to shift investments if defined signals are negative.

  • Cross-Chain


    Gain DeFi access with interoperability across multiple blockchain ecosystems in one place. The Paycer Protocol will integrate DeFi services from Polygon, Ethereum, Polkadot, Harmony, Avalanche, Cosmos and Binance Smart Chain.

  • Financial Services

    Financial Services

    The Paycer Platform will offer different financial services like a crypto wallet, a bank account, lending, liquidity pools, simplified DeFi access and the main product: earning high interest rates on personal savings.
