Cogent Bank to offer real-time, blockchain-based payments through TassatPaytm


Tassat Group Inc., the leading provider of blockchain-based, real-time solutions to banks, and Cogent Bank, a full-service commercial and retail bank, today announce Cogent Bank's B2B clients will have access to TassatPaytm, the only blockchain-based, real-time payment platform fully deployed within the U.S. banking system. TassatPaytm enables banks to provide their clients with instantaneous, secure, real-time payments 24/7/365.

"Providing our B2B clients with instantaneous payments using the power of blockchain technology, in a regulatory-compliant manner, is critical for competing in today's fast-paced digital economy," says Chirag Bhavsar, president of Cogent Bank. "Our B2B clients recognize that blockchain-enabled payments offer better fraud protection, faster settlement, reduced inefficiencies and lower costs that benefit their clients. Most importantly, TassatPaytm can be adopted without disruption to our operations and the services we provide to our clients."

Added Tassat Group CEO Ron Totaro, "Banks of all sizes are turning to TassatPaytm so they can compete and win in an increasingly digital economy. We are pleased Cogent Bank has selected Tassat to provide the platform to facilitate secure, instantaneous, real-time payments using a private blockchain and look forward to partnering as it serves its B2B customers."

The agreement with Cogent Bank follows record interest by banks across the country in TassatPaytm. Cogent Bank is the latest institution to turn to New York City-based Tassat Group, the engine behind the largest bank provider in this space. Tassat Group also recently signed an agreement with Customers Bank to provide blockchain-enabled payment capabilities, resulting in $1.5 billion in additional deposits at the end of its third quarter on Sept. 30, 2021. In addition, Western Alliance Bancorporation announced that it will implement a fully integrated digital banking platform for its customers powered by TassatPaytm.
