Hi, Fintech Fans 👋

We are back with another edition of Fintech Wrap Up. We believe socialising is one of the critical elements of human culture. Most of us socialise on different messengers to socialise with our friends and family. Now can send crypto on your Telegram Messenger which is another level of integration of crypto into our lifestyles.

The Open Network (TON), a decentralized blockchain initially designed by Telegram Messenger, announced this week it is adding a bot that lets Telegram’s more than 550 million users send cryptocurrency to other users via chat.

NEAR Protocol raises $350 million in new funding. NEAR says this latest funding round will accelerate the decentralization of the NEAR ecosystem. NEAR's previous raises included a $21.6 million round in May 2020 and another $150 million in January 2022.

Block users who receive their paychecks through Cash App's direct deposit feature can now receive all or a portion of those wages in Bitcoin.
