Over the past four years, we have built a global winning team and expanded our product into credit and data-driven insights, enabling any fungible product, such as money, digital assets, kilowatt-hours, gas units, carbon credits, reward points, telco minutes, to be spent as money.”

The latest round adds to the previous Series A funding round of $10 million in September 2019 from Moneta Capital, which led the round alongside CreditEase, Clocktower Technology Ventures, Singapore Life and a number of existing investors such as Firestartr.
