Native Payment Infrastructure, Airswift, Raises $2M in Pre-Seed Funding Led by CE Innovation Capital – Press release Bitcoin News

RELEASE IN PRESS. Vancouver, August 8, 2022 – Airswift, a fintech startup pioneering Web 3.0 native payment solutions, announced that it raised $2 million USD in a pre-seed funding round led by CE Innovation Capital (CEiC).

This latest funding came amid uncertainty and bearish sentiment around cryptocurrency. It indicates that investors are confident about Airswift’s unique model, and optimistic about the future of payment solutions that power the use of digital assets.

Airswift’s core technology is blockchain. It is developing a Web 3.0-friendly payment infrastructure. It includes an on-chain payment gateway, which allows merchants to accept crypto as well as fiat currencies. This facilitates frictionless transactions with digital assets. Airswift expects to release its first product by September 2022. It will be one of the world’s leading full-stack gateways that allows digital asset acceptance.

“The raise from CEiC shows that investors are confident in our unique strengths in blockchain R&D, payment gateway operations, regulatory compliance, among other factors”, said Dr. Yan Zhang, Co-founder and CEO of Airswift. “The current challenge associated with enabling crypto payments lies with both technical areas and fund aggregation. Airswift is committed to solving these issues with a decentralized payment gateway that protects user privacy and supports a liquidity pool model powered by block-chain technology.”

The investor values Airswift’s unique advantages in its established and forward-looking CeFi and DeFi solutions and its team’s rich experience, business acumen and prudent regulatory mindset towards the payments and blockchain industries.
