Paysend works with global banks, international and local payment systems, and has partnerships with major international card networks such as Visa, Mastercard, and China Union. 

Ronald Millar, CEO of Paysend, a FCA licensed e-money institution, mentions “Our global stablecoin is the perfect solution for Paysend’s 700,000 expats, as well as for our multi-currency account holders. With the Paysend stablecoin, our customers will be able to keep the value of their money consistent and make instant payments anywhere in the world, without cross-border fees.” 

Lisa Nestor, Director of Partnerships at the Stellar Development Foundation said, “We’re looking forward to seeing the adoption of the Paysend stablecoin among its users. Stablecoins represent the next generation of digital payments and have the potential to dramatically improve the payments and remittance industry.”
