Visa-backed Firm Currencycloud Partners Ripple
Currencycloud, an SBI Group and Visa Inc. backed firm, signed a memorandum of understanding last week to use Ripple global payment solution.
January 2020, SBI, Siam Commercial Bank, and Visa invested $80 million in Currencycloud to help the payment company finance its new innovative ideas in the crossborder remittance industry.
The financing will also make it easy for Currencycloud to research new ways of making crossborder payments and help expel hardship during fund movements.
The payment startup came into existence in 2007 and has been in a solid relationship with small and medium firms.
The collaboration with Ripple will open Currencycloud to new payment opportunities that help SMEs make global fund transfer.
