WORDS FROM OUR PARTNERS

Our collaboration with the Tekuno and NEAR Balkans teams provided Mastercard HR with a seamless and exceptional entrance into the Web3 domain. Through this activation, we not only gained significant brand visibility but also reinforced our commitment to embracing blockchain and other cutting-edge technologies. The added value of this campaign was the deep engagement we experienced with our end-users, fostering a strong sense of community around our brand and further solidifying our position as a forward-thinking and innovative company.

Real estate tokenization combined with Defi is something we’re bullish on and the Blocksquate team. We were originally built on Ethereum, but we realized that NEAR is cheaper, faster, and more scalable for our business.
