Squad Labs announced that its Series A funding round, led by Electric Capital with participation from RockawayX, Coinbase Ventures, L1D, Placeholder, and Mert Mumtaz, will propel the launch of its Fuse smart wallet. The company aims to establish Fuse as a premier solution for securing and compounding personal digital wealth amid the growing onchain economy.

According to the company’s news release on June 12, smart accounts and smart wallets are gaining traction across blockchains as they offer a more intuitive, secure, and programmable user experience. Fuse abstracts seed phrases and provides features like wallet recovery, 2FA capabilities, and enterprise-level security for personal custody, simplifying the choice of storing digital wealth on-chain.

In addition to securing funding, Squad Labs also announced the public testing launch of Fuse on iOS. This move is part of their strategy to expand accessibility and refine functionality ahead of a full market release.

Meanwhile, a recent report from PYMNTS Intelligence explores blockchain’s role in enhancing cross-border payments. It suggests that integrating blockchain can streamline payment processing, enable digital-to-fiat currency conversion, and introduce stablecoins for faster and cost-effective cross-border transactions. Business-friendly decentralized finance (DeFi) solutions further automate and secure transactions via smart contracts, reducing dependence on traditional payment systems and enhancing security and transparency.

The report underscores the significance of educating businesses and end-users about the benefits of blockchain-based cross-border payments. It advocates for partnerships with FinTechs and proactive engagement with financial institutions to drive adoption and improve industry-wide support for blockchain technologies in payments.

Overall, Squad Labs’ funding round and Fuse’s development represent strategic advancements in blockchain technology aimed at enhancing digital wealth management and transforming cross-border payment landscapes.
