Currencycloud, a Ripple’s partner, has launched a multi-currency wallet infrastructure and it’s been embraced by Starling Bank, Remitr, and TranSwap as first customers to queue for the service.
The multi-currency infrastructure, dubbed Spark, gives banks and financial institutions worldwide the room to funds in over 30 currencies in any part of the world.
The firm says small businesses find it hard to make payments during trades and do not have the advantage of opening accounts in different currencies, therefore, it launch the multi-currency infrastructure to reduce the hardship.
Since payment processes are hard, opaque, and very expensive, and businesses do not have the opportunity to make FX transactions easily, the newly unveiled Currencycloud Spark will make financial institutions and Fintechs open customer’s account, make payments and receive funds in different currencies.
The Spark idea will make use of the International Bank Account Numbers (IBANs) in more than 30 currencies.
The Ripple’s partner first announced the Currencycloud Spark in 2019, with more than 30 fintechs queuing up to use the latest infrastructure. The recently launched Remitr Global Business Account (GBA) survives on the Currencycloud Spark, and the innovation has been welcomed by the fintech’s customers.
The Remitr GBA is an empowerment to small businesses that desire to use different currencies.
Starling Bank, TranSwap and some others joined in the pilot program and nearly all of them have a good story to tell, says Currencycloud.
