What’s New

💳 Google Pay

Following our successful launch of Apple Pay last month, we’ve now got our Android users covered with the launch of Google Pay. For all our users in Australia - you’re now able to pay in-store, online, and in your favourite apps (think Uber, Amazon, Spotify, DoorDash).

Don’t forget to activate your Stables card and add it to your Google Pay wallet.

🔀 Bridge to Base

The much-anticipated release from Coinbase came in August, bringing a new Layer 2 to the Ethereum ecosystem, built on top of Optimism. The Stables team quickly added support so you can bridge USDC to and from Base quickly and securely.

If you want to read more about one of the easiest ways to send, swap or bridge to Base, check out our blog post.

🌱 Community Meetups

August was yet another massive month for community meetups and events. We attended:

  • All Things Blockchain (Brisbane)
  • Intersekt (Melbourne)
  • UpsideDAO (Melbourne)
  • Blockchain Australia (Sydney)

We’ve also got an event in Sydney on the 20th of September, with our Co-Founder Bernie talking to Blockchain Sydney. Register here if you want to attend, as tickets are limited.
