Among other synergies, the partnership will explore bringing ADA payments to the OccamRazer launchpad.

Zug, Sept. 13, 2021 — COTI, the first company in the world to offer a Cardano (ADA) payment gateway in association with the Cardano Foundation, will partner with to explore potential development synergies, including the possibility of enabling users to participate in initial decentralized offerings in ADA through the OccamRazer launchpad.

The strategic partnership, still in its early exploration phase, will look for opportunities to merge the launchpad capabilities of OccamRazer with the ADA payments solutions offered by COTI.

Shahaf Bar-Geffen, CEO of COTI, said:

“As fellow cFund recipients, it makes sense for COTI and to explore potential synergies for the good of the entire Cardano ecosystem. One of OccamRazer’s most significant challenges to date has been delivering ADA payments for initial decentralized offerings on their Cardano launchpad, which would allow them to solve the Ethereum gas problem and vastly increase value for their users. As one of the first ADA payment gateways, we’re excited to explore the possibility of delivering this functionality to the team.”

In April 2021, COTI made history on Cardano when it launched ADA Pay, onboarding multinational charity Save the Children as its first merchant, making seamless payments in ADA available from anywhere in the world.

Elliot Hill, head of communications at, said:

“COTI are true experts in making ADA payments available for services, empowering ADA holders and Cardano enthusiasts to use their holdings in the real world. It’s an exciting opportunity to work alongside COTI as we explore potential synergies and co-development milestones both before and after the release of smart contracts on Cardano.”
