Mash, a cryptocurrency FinTech startup, has raised $7.5 million CAD ($6 million USD) to help builders, creators, and developers generate revenue for their online work. "There’s an explosion in the number of people who want to be full-time creators and builders. But to go full time, they need an easy way to actually monetize the value they deliver,” said Jared Nusinoff, founder and CEO of Mash.
Mash’s technology is built on a foundation of Bitcoin, and the Lightning Network. The latter is a decentralized network that enables instant payments across networks.
