"As a gamer and music artist who loves tech, Zytara has created a real user-friendly world for digital life."

deadmau5 will also be joining Zytara's advisory board to help enhance their creative direction. 

"deadmau5 is a pioneer in using innovative, new technologies in creative ways, which is why we see this relationship as more than a typical partnership," added Al Burgio, Zytara's CEO and founder. "In addition to working with deadmau5 to develop the interactive and branded Zytara banking app, we are also welcoming him to Zytara's Advisory Board to help enhance the creative direction for Zytara moving forward."
