Recall that the Nigerian crypto payments startup commenced operation two years ago, intending to drive crypto adoption globally. The firm has enabled over 3,000 businesses to accept payments in stablecoins, including an off-ramp feature to help merchants convert crypto to fiat directly to the bank in over 100 countries.

Last November, Lazerpay fired members of its team in a bid to extend its operating runway after a proposed lead investor pulled out abruptly due to market conditions and disagreements on terms.
