While fintech technologies lead everyday lives in China, Singapore or Japan, many Asians, in particular those of 40 million Asian workers abroad, are still struggling to remit money to their families in their country of origin. This is just part of the problem we are helping to solve. I look forward to this competition and the opportunity it brings to the Asian fintech and blockchain ecosystems.” said Jay Patel, the founder and CEO of EDGE196.
