Uplift DAO, one of the leading IDO launchpads in the DeFi sector, today announced a strategic partnership with crypto exchange and web3 infrastructure provider MoonPay.

The two will be collaborating across a variety of verticals as a part of their deal, making it easier than ever for users to invest in web3 initiatives using traditional payment methods.

With MoonPay, Uplift is reducing barriers to crypto adoption by offering a simple and secure solution that lets people buy and sell crypto using payment methods they’re familiar with, like credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.

Additionally, MoonPay’s payments infrastructure provides a seamless and easily understood experience to investors to convert between fiat, cryptocurrency and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), further lowering the barrier to entry into the world of web3 early investing.

This alliance enables Uplift users to buy and stake to purchase 100+ virtual assets natively on the platform with minimal fuss. They will also gain access to Uplift’s early-stage IDOs, the launchpad platform that boasts a large global community of real members within the crowdfunding industry, with as little as $100.

“Our industry needs capital to continue to evolve. Our partnership with Uplift will make it even simpler for people to get involved in financing projects they believe in and reap the benefits of the growth of web3,” said Oliver Jeffcott, senior business development manager at MoonPay.

“At Uplift DAO one of our core missions is to lower the barrier of entry to Web3 investment opportunities, whilst simultaneously raising the standard of usability for our users. By integrating MoonPay onto our platform, this is a key step towards web3 scalability not only for us as an IDO launchpad but for the future of web3 investing.” Irina Berezina, Growth Lead at Uplift.

MoonPay is a Miami-based crypto payments company that values itself at $3.4 billion. The firm is backed by investments from NBA star Paul George, former tennis star Maria Sharapova, and musicians Drake and Justin Bieber.

Seeking long-term investment opportunities, the alliance with MoonPay helps grow the community with an already-verified base of crypto investors. On the entrepreneur’s side, Uplift IDO model allows for low listing costs, a wide range of asset management options, and accessible token allocation throughout incubation, launch and acceleration stages.

Most recently, Uplift DAO partnered with Hong Kong-based digital identity profile services provider Blockpass. The collaboration supports Uplift’s unique Price Protection Promise as the company works closely with the industry’s due diligence experts to ensure each project it backs is not only of the highest quality, but also offers strong potential.
