SyncDao Partnership
SyncDao is a Defi platform that empowers users to stake into perpetual vaults to earn perpetual earnings. Ally is partnering with SyncDao to bring Perpetual Non-Fungible Tokens (pNFTs) into reality.

Soon we’ll be starting a collaboration contest with artists around the world to create and sell pNFTs.

Project Development Updates

Service Ally Enhancements

  • In order to allow for more user control over the timing of payments, we’re integrating with Fiserv to provide two new options: Standard Transfer and Instant Transfer.
    • Standard Transfer will allow users to initiate payments that are delivered in 1-2 business days.
    • Instant Transfer will allow users to initiate same-day payments.
    • Users will now be able to save multiple bank accounts to their profile and set a default account for Standard Transfers.
    • When initiating either new transfer type, users will have the option to choose from any of the saved Debit Cards / Bank Accounts as a destination for the transferred funds.
  • An entirely revamped Earnings section, including the new Earnings Progress summary that allows you to keep track of your earnings for today, this week, and this month as you complete orders. We’ve also renamed subsections, headers, and added clarifying information to help answer the questions we get most frequently.
  • A streamlined user support process that automatically funnels your questions to the appropriate internal personnel after you submit for reduced response times.
  • Added language translation capabilities and are in the process of translating the various text elements in our app. Groundwork has been laid for rapid rollout of translation into other languages.
