On the same day, we will participate in the Panel Discussion titled “Alternative Method to Cross Border Asset Transfer Using Crypto Assets”.

Remittance refers to the transfer of money to a distant location or different country. Blockchain, by eliminating the need for certain intermediaries, allows DeFi remittance services to lower the average global remittance fee greatly. Furthermore, with the emergence of stablecoins, crypto assets and blockchains have proven to be a highly potential low cost and high speed remittance tool which serve as beneficial remittance options for users to transfer their assets.

Join us now to learn more about remittance using blockchains. Companies represented in the panel among others are Ripple, Tezos, Switcheo, Xendit, QCP, and Tokocrypto.
