As the partnership is officially live, all customers of Acredius are able to leverage the Cardano (ADA) token to directly invest in small and medium Swiss enterprises. This is a major achievement for Cardano's (ADA) real-world usage strategy.
Moreover, the users of Cardano (ADA) will soon get access to the "Secondary Market" module of Acredius, which will make their holdings more liquid than ever before.
Ghassen Benhadjsalah, co-founder and CEO at Acredius, stresses the importance of the collaboration for the adoption and visibility of his service:
We are excited to join forces with Cardano, a leader in the blockchain space. This collaboration will benefit both parties and ease access to marketplace lending (...) Our client's needs and expectations are evolving. We strive to be at the forefront of innovation in the marketplace lending industry
