Ripple blockchain monster has inked a partnership deal with another promising payments operator – Guavapay. It is based in the UK and has an e-Money license obtained from the local regulator FCA.
Curiously, Guavapay has already been working with another major Ripple partner – Siam Commercial Bank (SCB), the largest commercial bank in Thailand.
Another payment service platform joins RippleNet
Guavapay has announced that it has joined RippleNet created by Ripple so that global payment platforms and financial institutions could use it for facilitating faster and cheaper cross-border payments.
Guavapay has recently been granted an e-Money license from the British regulator FSA. The company offers its clients assistance with making digital payments to over a hundred countries in more than thirty global and local currencies.
By joining RippleNet, the company intends to expand its own network of partners.
As reported by U.Today previously, another large Ripple partner fintech Nium also received an EMI (Electronic Money Institution) license.
Working with SCB via RippleNet
Recently, Guavapay started collaborating with Siam Commercial Bank. This has enabled Guavapay to establish a channel for wiring funds from the UK to Thailand. The money goes directly to local bank accounts of the receivers and stored in Baht.
SCB has also been a RippleNet member since summer last year.
