According to Noga and Collins, the strategic partnership and the funding commitment remains. In particular, GEM is impressed by Unizen’s recent launch of its trade aggregator fulfills – one of the key development milestones that needed to be achieved to unlock part of the $200 million capital.

As part of their long-term collaboration, Unizen will tap into GEM’s financial resources and global reach, including in crypto and private equity, to build and grow its platform. With GEM’s milestone-based funding facility, Unizen can time capital injections to align with their roadmap, as well as access financing from investors at rising valuations.

GEM, on the other hand, will leverage Unizen’s offerings across web3 and fintech through ZenX Labs to expand its own opportunities.

The long-term cooperation and commitment between Unizen and GEM Digital is critical for Unizen, especially as it comes at a time the crypto market is trying to navigate another blip following yet another blip that sees major crypto exchange FTX filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
