WDC partners with leading digital asset platform WhaleFin

WhaleFin, powered by Amber Group, is the latest business to sign up to WDC's Climate Giant Project and adopt Salt, one of the most well-documented humpback whales.

Amber Group has set its sight on becoming a green trailblazer among the digital asset platforms. The launch of Amber Group’s WhaleFin platform is seen as the next big step for the fintech unicorn to fulfill its commitment to a better and more sustainable future. Amber Group is now calling on all other major companies in the crypto space to launch similar green initiatives by partnering up with climate and wildlife conservation organisations like WDC.

“We need to protect and restore the ocean as if our lives depend on it, because they do”, says Chris Butler-Stroud, Whale and Dolphin Conservation’s Chief Executive. “With the support of corporate partners like Amber Group joining our Climate Giant Project and adopting Salt, we can scale up our conservation work to support ocean-based solutions to the climate crisis and in doing so, protect every whale for their sake and ours”

“The name WhaleFin is not only a new addition to the Amber Group brand, but also represents our realization of the vital role that cetaceans play in the ecology of the ocean," Michael Wu, founder and CEO of Amber group remarked. "Only green finance can assist in creating a green future. Entering into a strategic partnership with WDC and adopting Salt is only the first step of working toward the corporate social responsibilities we’ve set up for Amber Group. Our goal is to contribute to sustainable development by leveraging the power of the crypto industry,” he concluded.
