Wedge launched in November of 2021, offering a first for financial technology lovers by changing how consumers use their assets like stocks, bonds, and cryptocurrencies. Wedge users are able to put their money to work in the markets without sacrificing liquidity, allowing them to capitalize on market movements any time they make a purchase. When the Wedge smart debit card is used for a transaction, the user is sent a notification that enables them to pay for the purchase using any asset, or a combination of assets, from within their Wedge wallet, along with real-time information that details the savings of using certain assets compared to cash. Now, with the addition of automatic rewards, powered by Cardlytics, Wedge continues to consolidate financial services within a common framework by giving users more and more ways to spend smartly.
“The capacity to use assets strategically for everyday transactions in a simple, frictionless way, is the next evolution in the way people manage their finances,” said Roberts. “For the first time people can consolidate their finances under one roof, and put their money to work in the markets in a way that doesn’t limit access to funds in real-time. As a result, every time a cup of coffee is purchased with the Wedge smart debit card is an opportunity to get rewards, and capitalize on market movements.”
