Coming off a strong finish to 2015 and a fast start to 2016, Uphold’s unfolding disruption of legacy finance has been recognized on IDG Connect’s Third Annual 20 Red Hot, Pre-IPO B2B Companies for 2016.

We are proud to be one of just six fintech companies - among tens of thousands - to make the cut and be classed as "Red Hot" by IDG. Others include; Adaptive Insights, a financial corporate performance management company; Nutmeg, a cloud investment portfolio startup; and, the financial management cloud ERP software darling.

As the report highlights, this list consists of remarkable companies poised to do even more remarkable things. In less than 14 months, Uphold has transacted more than $874M (USD equivalent; $760M not including Voxel, an exciting new virtual currency tied to two major VR efforts launching in the coming weeks), making us the fastest growing platform for moving money in the world.

It is always an honor to be recognized by industry influencers like IDG Connect and it inspires us to ensure that 2016 will be even more eventful, as we continue to accelerate the rollout of new markets and continue to innovate into our vision for The Internet of Money.
