Fincy’s Services are built using the Building Cities Beyond (BCB) blockchain protocol, indicating that it is used to decentralized technology. Being established last year, Fincy aimed in simplifying currency exchange through its multi-currency wallet, at wholesale trade prices, and with transaction charges as low as possible. The app also lets its users make contactless payments and facilitates an in-app social network. The CEO claimed that the secure, immutable blockchain infrastructure supports thousands of low-value transactions per second and will ensure that merchants will not be charged excessively for its non-cash payments.
As of June 2020, the startup raised $11 million from its parent to expand its presence throughout Asia. Fincy is even making plans to introduce a token-based loyalty system that allows sellers to issue a custom token for its customers. With the implementation of the loyalty system, merchants will see even more benefits. Online merchants can grow their payment options hugely, at the same time offline merchants will be capable of reveling in contactless payments without having to worry about holding several currencies.
