What is Zabo?

Zabo’s technology connects cryptocurrency accounts and makes it easy for users to unify their crypto holdings. The core technology is a good fit for Coinbase, which aims to make cryptocurrencies accessible to the masses.

In March, Zabo announced a $2.5 million funding round led by Moonshots Capital to expand its engineering team and grow its customer base. At the time, the company said its technology allows any financial services company, including banks, brokers, and fintech, to connect to customers’ crypto wallets, adding that Zabo’s API can integrate with thousands of exchanges, wallets, and cryptocurrencies.
