Mastercard today announced the launch of a new worldwide startup engagement programme called Start Path, which will promote fast-growing digital assets, blockchain, and cryptocurrency businesses.
Seven startups have joined the programme as part of Mastercard’s digital assets work, including Singapore-based Mintable and STACS, GK8, Domain Money, SupraOracles, Taurus, and Uphold, which aim to expand and accelerate innovation around digital asset technology and make it safer and easier for people and institutions to buy, spend, and hold cryptocurrencies and other digital assets.
Among the new initiative, participants are Mintable (Singapore), a non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace where users may produce, buy and trade digital and physical assets backed by the blockchain such as digital collectibles, avant-garde artwork, and even music.
The Mintable platform is packed with novel features such as gasless minting and credit card purchasing that are designed to empower the everyday person to get involved with NFTs without any prior knowledge in crypto or coding. STACS (Singapore) delivers financial industry blockchain technology to unlock significant value and enable effective, long-term financing. Global banks and national stocks are among its clients and partners.
GK8 (Israel) is a self-managed end-to-end institutional crypto custody platform with real air-gapped cold storage. This implies the platform can create, sign, and send secure blockchain transactions without relying on internet input, therefore eliminating any potential cyberattack vectors.
Domain Money (USA) aims to provide a next-generation investment platform for ordinary investors, bridging the gap between digital assets and traditional finance.
Uphold (USA) is a multi-asset, crypto-native digital money platform that provides investing and payment services to individuals and businesses around the world. Customers can trade directly between asset classes with embedded payments, supporting a future where everyone has access to financial services, thanks to Uphold’s unique “Anything-to-Anything” trading experience.
SupraOracles (Switzerland) is a sophisticated blockchain oracle that enables interoperable smart contracts to automate, simplify, and secure the future of financial markets by bridging real-world data to both public and private chains.
Taurus (Switzerland) provides enterprise-grade infrastructure to manage any digital asset, including crypto assets, digital currencies, and tokenized assets, with a single platform that covers issuance, custody, asset servicing, and trading.
