The partnership with Checkout.com is expected to allow users to have constant access to instant liquidity while also ensuring that they have full say over what happens to their assets.

The startup last raised a CHF 2.5 million Series A round in mid-2021 and recently made the TOP 100 Swiss Startup Awards 2022.

Checkout.com is a London-based payments solutions provider with a US$40 billion valuation. The company recently acquired French identity verification startup Ubble and partnered with Fireblocks to offer its 24/7 stablecoin settlement solution.
