FOMO Pay, the Singapore-headquartered major payment institution that enables the digital economy with global virtual banking solutions for financial institutions and enterprises, announced that it has secured a $13 million investment in its Series A round led by Jump Crypto.
The funding round was also participated by HashKey Capital, Antalpha Ventures, Ab Initio Capital, and Republic Capital, according to the announcement.
With the injection of fresh funds, the firm will accelerate its growth and will invest in talent acquisition and its infrastructure. The firm will also strengthen research and development capabilities, as well as a geographical expansion.
The firm will also extend its client base to embrace digital payments and accelerate digital adoption with more main-stream institutions stepping into the digital asset space; expand geographically with first-mover advantage on license and compliance into other jurisdictions; and diversify product offerings following the crypto adoption curve including working closely with regulators on Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) projects.
Founded in 2015, FOMO Pay is a homegrown fintech company offering its flagship solutions by helping institutional clients connect to e-wallets, credit cards, cryptocurrencies, and more with its global banking solutions.
