Enabling Fast, Secure Online Payment Access for Users Across Europe and Globally

GENEVA, March 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.
