In this Customer Case Study series, we’ll explore how leading web3 teams use zkMe to elevate their security and regulatory compliance while simultaneously protecting their users identity.


Xion Global, a leading multi-chain Web3 crypto payments gateway, is dedicated to delivering premier decentralized payment solutions worldwide. However, as they started scaling, they encountered significant challenges due to complex regulations and the necessity for secure, controlled transactions. To facilitate their global expansion, Xion Global required a scalable and sustainable solution that ensures regulatory compliance.


zkMe provided Xion Global with a scalable and efficient compliance solution that integrates seamlessly with their existing infrastructure. By leveraging zkMe's zero-knowledge proof (zkKYC) and Know Your Transaction (KYT) solutions, Xion Global ensures they are KYC and AML compliant in addition to safeguarding their platform without compromising the speed and security of their payment processes.


Xion Global is a leading Web3 payments infrastructure provider offering API-driven, white-label solutions for crypto payments with instantaneous stable coin settlements, serving over 842,298 merchants across Africa.

Xion Global leverages zkMe's zero-knowledge KYC solution to enhance security, privacy, and compliance, and uses zkMe's KYT API for continuous compliance checks on wallet addresses, ensuring all transactions meet regulatory standards. These integrations allow them to offer secure, compliant payment solutions and expand their market reach.

"A partnership with zkMe was a natural fit for us," said Aeryn Quarmby, COO of Xion Global. "Their versatile, affordable KYT API with multichain support allows us to maintain compliance without sacrificing user experience. We chose zkMe because we can perform continuous checks for multiple payments from the same client's wallet address without incurring high rates. The fees they charge are minimal, and we haven't found anyone offering better rates. As we expand, focusing on multi-chain payments and instantaneous stable coin settlements, zkMe's pricing remains unmatched. Their interoperability and ability to perform continuous checks on the same wallet without extra charges have been instrumental in our growth and success."


Xion Global operated in a highly regulated environment and needed to ensure compliance with various regulations, particularly when dealing with non-custodial payment solutions. They required an on-chain KYC procedure that was scalable with multi-chain support to accommodate their business expansion, all while prioritizing user privacy. Managing the complexities of identity verification in a decentralized environment was crucial for Xion Global to uphold trust and confidence among its clients and customers.

As Xion Global expanded within the Web3 payment sector, there was an increased emphasis on maintaining KYT compliance to prevent illicit funds from entering their ecosystem. Effectively managing large-scale transaction monitoring in a cost-efficient manner was essential for safeguarding their business and maintaining the integrity of their payment infrastructure.

"As a Web3 payment provider, one of our biggest challenges was ensuring regulatory compliance. We needed a versatile solution that could support our scaling needs, save our operational and technical efforts, offer us security, and comply with regulations - which was missing before we partnered with zkMe," stated Aeryn Quarmby, COO of Xion Global.


ZKMe's zkKYC solution significantly aids Xion Global in maintaining compliance within the highly regulated Web3 payment sector. By leveraging zero-knowledge proofs, zkKYC enables Xion Global to verify user identities without exposing sensitive personal information, thereby enhancing user privacy while meeting regulatory requirements.
