The integration of the Escrow Pay API into the IPv4.Global marketplace provides an integrated secure Escrow agent through a simple and secure three step check-out process, all within the IPv4 platform.

"The integration of Escrow.com provides our worldwide base of buyers and sellers a globally recognized option to securely escrow their transactions," said Gabe Fried, Chief Executive Officer of Hilco Streambank. "Adding global partners like Escrow.com supports our continued expansion worldwide."

The IPv4.Global marketplace connects sellers and buyers of IPv4 addresses. In addition to the already streamlined process, buyers and sellers can now view the status of their payments, which are securely held in escrow, by the trusted third party, until both parties are satisfied with the transaction.

Buyers and sellers also benefit from Escrow.com's global customer support and the reassurance of working with a trusted escrow service operating within licensing regulations for 20 years.

IPv4.Global launched its IPv4 address auction platform in 2014 with the goal of creating a streamlined method for monetizing IPv4 address blocks. The new integration with Escrow.com closes the loop for a smooth IPv4 marketplace transaction. "With Escrow Pay, we now provide even greater levels of service to people all around the world who want to buy or sell IPv4 assets," Fried said.

Escrow.com has safely processed over US$4 billion worth of transactions. By releasing the Escrow Pay API in mid-2018, it gave businesses the power to build the functionality of the Escrow.com Platform directly into their online platforms with a single API call. The escrow company regularly secures funds for IPv4 address transfers within and between different Regional Internet Registries, with whom IPv4.Global has close working relationships.

"Escrow.com is the leading global provider of escrow payments for anything of value, from cars, boats and aeroplanes to domain names and IPv4 addresses," said Escrow.com General Manager Jackson Elsegood. "The integration of Escrow Pay provides a superior and simplified experience to online marketplaces and digital transaction services."
