In an ever-evolving era, the adoption of digital assets has transformed from simply apeing into cryptocurrencies to now being used as a mode of value transfer.

These digital assets have revolutionized the way both businesses and consumers transact in cross-border settings and have now overgrown their initial phase to turn into a critical payment gateway asset class.

With this phase in running, the reliance on digital assets extends to offer not just secure transfer of assets but streamlined payment processing as well on both enterprise and consumer levels. Now, more than before, there is a clear showcase of how the existence of a lot of intermediaries to execute on-chain transactions has implied security concerns.

Unlock the potential of digital assets for your institution

For this to happen, it needs to originate from an organizational level whereby assets transacted in and out of their wallets, need to be engineered in such a way that they process payments smoothly, securely and immutably.

To solve this issue of secure digital asset payments, Liminal is manufacturing distinctive wallet and security infrastructure solutions for enterprises and organizations that handle large amounts of transactions from internal and user sides simultaneously.

Understanding Problems With Digital Asset Payment Systems

The most common notion related to digital assets has been their feasibility to process transactions just like we do through our traditional banking systems, which is far more reliable than current payment systems with cryptocurrencies.

The traditional payments were way too cumbersome to cycle through funds internationally with exorbitant charges. This now replaced with digital assets solves the basic and inherent problems of sending payments to any corner of the world, forming a new payment model.

A majority of this is driven by how convenient digital assets have become in terms of adapting to changing transaction needs and lowering entry barriers and cross-border fees.

But it isn’t all so easy in the world of digital assets and there are some very core problems in processing transactions through digital assets:

  • Network Congestion: Network congestion can create problems for payment processing on EVM chains, leading to delays, increased costs, and even lost funds. Under high network congestion, transactions get backlogged leading to delays in processing transactions on-chain.
  • Wallet Security: Wallet security is essential for payments because a compromised wallet can lead to theft, unauthorized access, loss of funds, and complexity in usability. From lost keys, inability to recover keys, wallet hack, confiscation of assets and seizure of custody partner can result in compromised wallet security.
  • Gas Fees: The initially formed PoW consensus wasn’t an ideal network configuration to process cheaper transactions. Since then, Gas Fees have been an integral part of a majority of transactions failing to execute because of their volatility.
  • Address Check: Transferring digital assets is defined by a string of letters and numbers, that serves as a virtual location where a cryptocurrency can be sent. With such an arbitrary sending address there is no way to identify a person associated with an address, an active address, or a fraudulent address, causing problems with payment.

Comprehending the viability and scalability of using digital asset-powered payment systems empowering both tangible and non-tangible asset transfer, the impending aforementioned problems need to be resolved on a bigger scale to impact this fastidious payment method.
