2023 marked a significant milestone for BlinkSky, a global payments platform that delivers secure, interactive and customizable digital cards, real-time at scale. Among its most recent accomplishments, BlinkSky raised $1.5M in its initial private round, with investment participation from industry luminaries, including former c-suite executives from Systems and Methods, Inc, (SMI), MetaBank, Fiserv and InComm. “Our initial round, especially in a challenging economic climate, is a testament to the hard work of our team and the innovative potential that our platform unlocks,” said BlinkSky Chairman and Founder Mark Chambers. “We’re not just creating basic codes and pins on plastic; we’re crafting a new mobile-first experience to revolutionize how our customers interact with digitally stored value on any device.”
Based in Atlanta, BlinkSky offers an advanced web portal or cloud-scale API to hundreds of digital gift card brands and digital prepaid cards that are securely delivered on-demand via SMS or email for instant use in-store or online. Among BlinkSky’s most recent milestones, the company celebrates:
● Welcoming government payment solutions provider Systems and Methods, Inc. (SMI) as a major client and strategic investor.
● Expanding collaboration with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, allowing agents nationwide to purchase digital cards for rewards and incentives.
