The Mercury 2020 Recap
As we wave goodbye to 2020 and gear up for more “no you go ahead” Zoom calls and DASH-boosting dinners, we thought we’d take a look back at how we spent our year together.
You moved a lot of money.
$110M went into Treasury & it’s only been about a week. 484% more e-commerce companies use Mercury now.
You sent 500,000+ wires*.
You can now send even more*.
19,000+ debit cards exist, and they look good doing it.
And you did it pretty fast.
You Maximized Efficiency™ this year. On average it took about:
You gave us a lot to work on.
Treasury is made of 40,400 lines of code, which is neat.
Immad ended his 2.5 year quest for our domain.
And you worked hard too.
Linear raised a $13m Series A. Wren gave $336k to afforestation. Trust & Will is a finalist in SXSW Pitch®. Tandem made Music Rooms. Golden taught us 4,815 things.
We sent out ~5,000 cups of tea to you. We do like tea.
Immad had a big year.
~4,500 of you liked this startup-unrelated tweet from Immad.
We made 42 emoji versions of Immad’s callsign, charlietuna, in our team Slack. He hates all of them.
And we all got to know each other a little better.

We have 22 pets (including Phil, the lizard), 9 “official offices," and ~900 songs in our #music channel playlist. Feel free to listen to our playlist; it will last you days.
We’re looking for an engineer to build our Android app. If you know someone great, send them our job posting.
We’re also working on user permissions, team spend management, new payment abilities, native invoicing...and a few more big projects.
If you have any feedback, ideas, or just want to say hi, you can always email us at [email protected]. We love to chat.
