Commenting on the investment, Greengage CEO, Sean Kiernan said: “IOVlabs have long been recognised in Gibraltar – and globally – as one of the top pioneers in the digital finance world. Their team combines deep technology expertise with a vision to build an internet of value which provides greater financial freedom and is open to everyone”. He continued “We are excited to have an institutional investor of this calibre and to explore together the future possibilities of cryptocurrencies, digital identity and clean, decentralised finance developed on top of the world leading RSK blockchain and RSK Infrastructure Framework platforms. We look forward to building on this investment to bring innovative new financial services solutions to the market.”

Diego Gutierrez Zaldivar, IOVlabs, CEO said: “We are delighted to partner with Greengage and join them in making a key contribution to build a more equitable and decentralized financial system. We are excited to be part of the growth of their robust digital banking platform, which uses advanced technologies to facilitate cost-effective transactions for underserved SMEs within both traditional currency and cryptoasset markets”.

Greengage is currently engaged in the regulatory approval process with the GFSC to receive a Gibraltar banking licence.
