In a recent article by BetaKit, Canadian startup WonderFi has acquired an Australian crypto trading license as part of its international expansion strategy.

Lastly, budgeting app Copilot has experienced significant growth following the discontinuation of Mint by Intuit. This shift in the market dynamics has led to increased investor interest, resulting in a successful $6 million Series A funding round for the subscription-based personal finance tracker.
