Tilia, a digital economy and metaverse payments company based in the US, has secured strategic investment. Specifically, Dunamu joined lead investor JP Morgan in an extension of the existing round, bringing the total to $22 million.
It will also allow the firm to offer new payments solutions for various sectors, including online games, creator platforms, social commerce in addition to other digital social platforms.
The investment comes in the wake of increasing demand for Tilia’s payments engine, which can facilitate the requirements of digital economy as well as offering new monetisation tools for creator and social-driven platforms, said the firm.
Besides, Tilia appointed Brad Oberwager as CEO and named Catherine Porter as its first chief business officer.
Oberwager said: “Today’s payments infrastructure was built for traditional commerce – it hasn’t caught up with the new way of living and working in a digital, creator-driven economy.
“At Tilia, we have a massive opportunity to unlock new revenue streams for both online creators and the platforms they build in, whether they are gaming worlds, social platforms, or next generation marketplaces.
