Unlocking Digital Value For Everyone

Infrastructure for transferring and exchanging digital value - from fractional shares to gift cards - enabling people to pay and get paid by anyone, anywhere, instantly.

Runa is pioneering a first-of-its-kind payment rail capable of sending and accepting digital value at scale.

Runa enables developers to integrate the ability to issue, send, accept, and hold digital value in their applications without building complicated infrastructure.

The digital currency and digital payment markets are expected to become a multi-trillion-dollar industry within the next decade, but they remain largely siloed and are not integrated within legacy payment systems. 

Runa is driving the liquidity of digital assets so businesses can adapt to an increasingly mainstream part of the economy, such as utilizing digital value for mass payouts. Consumers can spend the value they have received just as they would like, purchasing the products they want, when they want them.

The Runa Story

Runa was founded by Aron Alexander in 2016 as WeGift - an innovative, API-driven gift card platform trusted by some of the world’s largest companies.

Runa's platform story and brands
In 2023, we became Runa, a digital value infrastructure that enables people to pay and get paid by anyone, anywhere instantly.
