Our plan is to invest in our go-to-market to ensure we make the most of some of the recent partnerships we have established.

‍Krzysztof Bialkowski, Managing Partner of TX Ventures comments on the investment:

“Our view is that within the near-mid term, marketplaces will have to offer trusted payment solutions otherwise they will miss out on new business. Trustap, by providing escrow-like payment options and by lifting the operational burden off the shoulders of marketplaces, offer just that. The product is immensely scalable which is proven by the global presence of clients and the numerous categories Trustap facilitates among buyers and sellers. The easy-to-implement solution, the underlying trends in the marketplace industry and the execution-driven team will play a pivotal role for Trustap to become the leading infrastructure provider for trusted payments around the globe. It is a special addition to our fintech portfolio.”
