Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 17, 2021) - Lynx Global Digital Finance Corporation (CSE: LYNX) (OTC Pink: CNONF) (FSE: 3CT0) ("Lynx" or the "Company") today announces its subsidiary Direct Agent 5 Inc. ("DA5"), has opened up direct operational payment distribution channels to service the Vietnam market by way of API integration with FinFan - Vietnam's largest provider of global remittance services.
In an effort to service pent up demand in the Australasia market for this specific money rail, and to streamline corporate branding under the Lynx Global banner, the Lynx Australian subsidiary Arkin Technologies has now been renamed to Direct Agent 5 PTY. LTD. ("DA5 Australia") for purposes of sales, marketing, and operations. DA5 Australia is an Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre ("AUSTRAC") registered holder of a Remittance license and Digital Currency Exchange Services Provider license in Australia.
"Our recently launched DA5 Australia operations can now offer our customers with both cross-border money transfer services, and the exchange and trade of money for digital currency and digital currency for fiat in that market. Here in Australia the demand from the local Vietnamese and Chinese populations supporting our efforts is significant and now that the FinFan rails are open we expect substantial remittance and forex volumes to begin processing," stated Mr. Yeoryios Markos, President of DA5 Australia.
"It's an investment in a relationship with DA5 built on principles that transcend simply being recognized as industry leaders - those of trust, honesty, and the good faith we share when bringing flagship products to communities where the scope and success of real time cross-border transaction disbursements to accounts, cards, ewallets, ATMs, or IBANs, is most critical. Where we shine is not only disbursing to loved ones across the globe, but also in getting B2B payments to the places around the World, where and when your clients most need it via smart collection innovative services," added Dr. Tuyen NGUYEN, CEO of FinFan.
"As Lynx Global and its operating companies continue to expand its network of global distribution rail integrations, we continue to push ourselves to the forefront of recognized innovative money-transfer solution providers. With remittance, forex and cryptocurrency payments services becoming more competitive every day, the greater the capabilities provided by a one-source solution the greater the differentiation advantage of the overall financial solution. This strategic integration between DA5 and FinFan further enhances our customer experience and broadens the global coverage points of the DA5 proprietary money rails," said Michael Penner, CEO Lynx Global.
During the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, FinFan became the first neo-banking institution in Vietnam to utilize the Ripple XRP blockchain network and its global financial payments network called RippleNet. As part of RippleNet, which comprises more than 300 financial institutions worldwide, FinFan, in conjunction with the partnership, carved out a more transparent solution for on-demand minimized transaction fees, with a real-time bridge between the multi-currency exchange, that could be instantly settled in the destination countries on a 24/7 basis - it is to this FinFan infrastructure that DA5 and the Lynx Pan-Global Network now has full access.
At the time of the Ripple announcement, FinFan Founder and CEO Dr. Tuyen NGUYEN stated, "FinFan brings Vietnamese Generation Z over the globe - the first fully digital generation - money beyond borders is an experience. These demographics want their financial experiences to be seamless, effective, and in line with their lifestyle preferences when sending money home to their loved relatives."
FinFan is a Cross-Border Money Movement Platform authorized by the Central Bank of Vietnam (SBV) that helps service providers expand quickly to unreached markets with a full spectrum of remittance & payment services. FinFan is the first non-bank financial company to be licensed and to operate in Vietnam. Since its founding in 2007, it has grown tremendously to become the Number 1 money transfer company in the country. Within 13 years, FinFan has added many more services to its portfolio, including overseas money transfer, payment, pay the bill, cash-in, cash-out, and more.
The Digital banking revolution is taking Vietnam by storm, and FinFan is considered one of the key players in this. By being the first non-bank institution in Vietnam to use RippleNet, it redraws the financial boundaries by bringing a new level of efficiency and accessibility for cross-border transactions to and from the nation.
Bringing new tech mainstream, today Finfan aims to provide a comprehensive foundation for the future of financial infrastructures that facilitate cross-border transactions in real-time. FinFan's innovative financial transaction platform and textbook infrastructure network enables partners like banks, MTOs, bill payment service providers, cryptocurrencies FX/ traders, and other digital financial institutions around the world to access these functionalities easily, reliably, and securely, to directly transact via single opened API with the local market without the need for a central counterparty or separate correspondents.
