TL:DR;

  • Global payments just got easier: Live Links allow you to pay and share funds to virtually anyone in the world with just a few taps and at a fraction of a cent– plus, now USDT and USDC are all you need to send crypto (gas included!) 

  • How to get started: You can access the Live Links feature by simply tapping “Send” in Valora’s quick actions menu and selecting “Send with a Live Link.”

  • Win 100 USDC/USDT: We’re dropping Live Links with $100 worth of USDC or USDT every hour for 24 hours from 9 AM EST, Thursday, April 18, to 9 AM EST, Friday, April 19

Global Payments just got easier

Sending payments should be as simple as sending a text.

Valora connects the world through easy, global payments - borderless transactions at the tap of a button. With Valora, you can send crypto to friends and family with near-zero fees, even if they don’t have the app installed yet. 

Live Links allow you to pay and share funds to virtually anyone in the world in seconds with a link that can be shared via text, DM, or QR code. Just tap “Send” to generate a Live Link that you can then send to friends and family on your favorite messaging app. If they don’t claim the link, don’t worry! You can reclaim your funds at any time.

Pay with popular stablecoins like USDC and USDT

ICYMI: you can now send USDC and USDT on Celo more seamlessly and pay for gas with that same token– all in your Valora app.

What does this mean? This upgrade enables a simplified user experience for payments powered by USDC, USDT, and Celo. With this, Valora users can use their stablecoin of choice to start transacting right away without needing another token to pay for gas. 

Just top up your wallet via one of our integrated providers or swap for your stablecoin of choice directly in your wallet. It’s that simple.

No matter where you are in the world, you can send, receive, and hold these popular stablecoins securely in your Valora wallet. 

Now live!
