YouHodler Accelerates Web3 Fintech Evolution with Upcoming Universal Money Addresses (UMA) Integration in Partnership with Lightspark

GENEVAMarch 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — YouHodler, a Swiss-based Web3 fintech platform, today announced an exciting partnership with Lightspark to incorporate the cutting-edge Universal Money Addresses (UMA) technology into its suite of Web3 finance solutions for consumers and enterprises. This landmark integration, officially unveiled today at the 2024 Web3 Banking Symposium, will streamline near-instant online payments to and from the YouHodler platform. YouHodler is a key European financial institution to adopt UMA.

UMA represents a significant leap forward in internet-native payments, offering an open-source standard that merges human-readable Lightning addresses with real-time, global payment rails. This integration facilitates sending money to or from the YouHodler platform, whether fiat or crypto, as effortlessly as sending an email. It also leverages the Bitcoin Lightning Network for global settlement, ensuring near-instant, secure, and universally accessible payments in any currency of the user’s choice.

Registration for early bird UMA access is now open on the YouHodler platform, where customers can request their unique UMA addresses ahead of the full integration. YouHodler, in collaboration with Lightspark, is committed to finalizing all technical configurations and releasing the full set of UMA functionalities by May 1, 2024, for all registered YouHodler customers.

“UMAs change the way that money can be sent worldwide – making sending funds as simple as sending an email or text. At YouHodler, we are committed to delivering innovative solutions to bring all the benefits of crypto and blockchain to the traditional financial market,” said Ilya Volkov, CEO and co-founder of YouHodler. “The integration enables us to upgrade our suite of Web3 fintech solutions, meeting our users’ growing demand for intuitive payment solutions that are both fast and secure. Our partnership with Lightspark, a frontrunner in online payments technology, ensures our platform remains at the forefront of Web3 fintech innovation.”

David Marcus, co-founder and CEO of Lightspark, stated, “We’re excited to partner with YouHodler to bring UMAs to more Europeans.
