U.S.-based fintech Vesica announced earlier this week it raised $2.1 million through its seed funding round, which included investments from Mercury Digital Assets and Miami International Holdings. Vesica shared its flagship product, SHIFT, empowers traders with a “front page view” of financial markets by providing directional information on daily market movements, volatility, and major trades all within a modern and intuitive user experience.
While sharing more details about the services, Saad Hussain, Founder and CEO of Vesica, stated:
“Vesica has taken a deliberate approach to simplify how professional traders develop market insight and make informed investment decisions with maximum efficiency. Since our inception, we’ve worked to develop an unmatched toolkit for the modern trader, and we are thrilled to have the backing of strategic investors who share our vision and will help us scale.”
Vesica further explained that SHIFT uses simple language and drag and drop widgets so users can navigate market data intuitively and instantly. The platform’s customizable widgets monitor specific information in equities and options markets across all 16 U.S. stock and options exchanges, such as volatility, latest trades, and largest trades from anywhere in real-time. Funds from the seed round will be used to continue the growth and development of Vesica’s platform and products.
