Vietnamese fintech startup GIMO, which offers on-demand pay for blue-collar workers, allotted shares worth $6.3 million last week.

The shares were issued to investors, including Integra Partners, TNB Aura, Resolution Ventures and Y Combinator. The allotment includes fresh equity funding of $4.6 million.

Earlier in November 2021, the startup had raised $1.9 million in a seed+ round amid a pandemic-induced demand for more convenient payroll services.

Officially launched in early 2021, GIMO allows employees to access their earned salary almost instantly via a mobile app integrated with the company’s payroll system. Users can also keep track of their workdays and daily earnings in real time and receive personal finance tips.

Singapore-based crypto lending and trading platform Vauld allotted shares worth $4 million to investors, including Pantera Capital, Coinbase Ventures, Gumi Cryptos Capital and CMT Digital, last week.

In July last year, the startup froze consumer withdrawals, trading and deposits on its platform after facing “financial challenges” amid a crypto market downturn. According to media reports, a Singapore court recently extended Vauld’s creditor protection period to February 28, as the company has not yet developed a restructuring plan.

Two undisclosed digital asset fund managers, meanwhile, have reportedly submitted bids to handle the tokens stuck on Vauld’s platform.
