About

Hi we’re Stronghold!


Stronghold Institutional Services Limited has developed Stronghold USD, a one-to-one asset-backed U.S. dollar token on distributed ledger technologies. For the first time, institutions can use one platform to instantly accept and settle payments in USD and easily access foreign exchanges via a lightning-fast global network.

A stable and liquid payments and savings vehicle, Stronghold USD allows token holders and businesses to move dollars globally with near-instant settlement via the Stellar network, an open-source protocol for value exchange. Although Stronghold USD was launched on Stellar, the company may choose to expand to additional networks.

Stronghold USD is not pegged or algorithmically synchronized to the U.S. dollar — it’s a stable token for the dollar that runs on a fast, efficient blockchain network that was created to exchange government-backed currencies.

Key objective

Extending financial inclusion to underbanked populations by offering highly secure, point-to-point payment transactions.
