What does the Transfer process look like?

Learn how to transfer both fiat and crypto on the platform.

One of the key functions of the Cybrid platform is enabling the transfer of funds, which includes both fiat currencies such as USD and CAD, and cryptocurrencies like BTC, ETH, and USDC. This comprehensive fund transfer functionality is provided through our /api/transfers endpoint, which can be explored in detail using our Swagger API documentation. In this article, we will provide an overview of this transfer functionality and the benefits it offers to users and developers.
