The participation of Braza Bank, a leader in FX and cross-border payments, underscores the strength of our partnership and the increasing adoption of crypto by institutions. Since our inception in 2020, we've transformed from an underdog into an industry leader that is trusted by our clients. This capital injection empowers us to seize market opportunities with renewed vigor and continue building on our success.'

Marcelo Sacomori, Founder & CEO of Braza Bank, added: “Choosing SCRYPT as our partner to launch our cryptocurrency services was a strategic and natural decision. Their exceptional expertise in the crypto asset space, coupled with their robust, regulated infrastructure, establishes SCRYPT as an invaluable partner for Braza Bank as we introduce these cutting-edge services to our millions of customers.’’

Sylvan Martin, Founder & COO of SCRYPT, also commented: 'This funding round marks a pivotal moment for us and comes at a time when we have more than doubled our team and operational capacity in the Company. This investment and the momentum we are seeing validates our strategy and execution thus far and is a clear signal that the market believes in our vision.
