Multi-chains integration ⛓

Here at Stables, we totally get that lack of interoperability has been a major headache for crypto users for a long time. That's why we've been on a mission to tackle this issue since we first started working on our user-friendly stablecoin wallet. And now, we're thrilled to be taking things even further by building a bridge for USDC between additional EVM chains like Optimism, Polygon, Arbitrum, Fantom, BSC, ETH, and Avalanche. With more flexibility and options, our users will have an even smoother and more enjoyable experience on our app.

Building on online card 🏗

In our previous community update, it was mentioned that the backend development for our stablecoin-powered card was completed. Currently, the frontend development is underway on both iOS and Android platforms. Our beta launch is planned for the middle of this year, with stablecoin cards and remittance payments. We can't wait to share it with you, so stay tuned for more updates!

Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for some exciting partnership announcements coming very soon 👀
