Momint announces use of CYBERA CYBERCRIME Solutions to protect their digital asset platform 

Cybercrime is low risk, low investment, and high return. Not surprisingly, illegal financial gain is one of the biggest reasons for cyber-attacks. The result is a predicted USD 10 Trillion of damages by 2025. Our vision is to change that.

Today we are pleased to announce our latest customer to use CYBERA CYBERCRIME WATCHLISTTM & CYBERCRIME VSRTM to protect their Digital Asset Platform. 


Momint is the leading digital asset platform in Africa. Momint’s marketplace covers, not just NFTs but tokenization of digital assets such as coins and whiskey. 


As with all crypto and Web3 businesses, ensuring trust on the platform is key to growth. CYBERA’s solutions improve Momint’s due diligence processes. By screening new customers and wallets against CYBERA’s CYBERCRIME WATCHLISTTM as part of KYC processes, bad actors are kept off the platform. CYBERA is then used throughout the customer lifecycle providing screening as part of ongoing due diligence and transaction monitoring. 


CYBERCRIME VSRTM is available to support victims of fraud report scams quickly and easily to law enforcement and beneficiary institutions, increasing the chances of recovery. 


Nicola Staub, CEO & Co-Founder at CYBERA says, We are proud that Momint chose CYBERA to protect its customers using our solutions. We decided to found CYBERA, after I worked for many years as a prosecutor specialized in fighting cybercrime. Frustrated at the significant hurdles to prosecuting criminals we realized two key areas that were lacking. First a coordinated global response to support bank and crypto customers who have become victims of scams and fraud. And second the ability to share information from victims, in real-time, to prevent further fraudulent transactions from happening. So that is what we have created – a platform to support victims of cybercrime and share data in real-time to improve fraud prevention, fight money laundering and reduce costs.  

About Momint 


Momint is a start-up that specializes in putting real assets and legal contracts on the blockchain. 

Our primary offering is the Momint Marketplace that enables the trade of solar energy, heritage assets and art through advanced and secure blockchain technology. 

In March 2022, we hosted Africa’s largest NFT auction where we sold Nelson Mandela’s original arrest warrant for $130,000. These profits helped fund the restoration of Liliesleaf heritage site, thereby protecting historical documents of South Africa’s struggle for democracy.  

In January 2023, Momint launched the SunCash initiative as a cost effective solution to solve South Africa’s energy crisis. You can purchase solar cells through SunCash for as little as $9, and sell their solar energy back to public institutions through a Standard Power Purchase Agreement. This mechanism enables individuals to support renewable energy adoption while earning a forecasted income. 


At CYBERA we’re on a mission to stop money laundering and help protect customers from scams and other financial cybercrime. We close gaps that allow cyber criminals to thrive by sharing crime data in real-time with financial institutions, fintech, and crypto exchanges, and coordinating a global response to support customers who have become victims of financial cybercrime. 

CYBERCRIME WATCHLISTTM helps support firms to reduce fraud and money laundering and meet the requirements of the CRM as part of a holistic fraud and financial crime strategy. 


CYBERCRIME VSRTM lets victims report fraud and scams to increase chances of recovery.  

Unlike other data sources, CYBERA is a global solution, so is well placed to support crypto and Web3.
