Future FinTech Group, Currencycloud, FinTech, Money Transmission, Visa, FinCen, Tempo, Multicurrency Digital Wallet, Funds Feature, Cross Border Payments, USAFuture FinTech Group Inc., a blockchain application technology developer and FinTech service provider, announced that Future FinTech Labs, a wholly subsidiary of the Company, has teamed up with Currencycloud Inc., a subsidiary of Visa and a global payment platform that is registered with FinCen and is licensed for money transmission in various states in the US, to launch the remittance app Tempo to offer US-based immigrants and others a streamlined, secure and cost-effective way to send money from the US to North America (Canada and Mexico), Europe (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom), Australia, India, and the Philippines.

Lewis Nurcombe, Vice President of Sales, Currencycloud, commented, “Migrants in the US should be able to send money cross-border without friction and without prohibitive costs. A fintech company like Future FinTech Labs understands the needs of working people wanting to send money to family and friends, and as such is successfully re-imagining how money flows for this huge market.”

By working with Currencycloud and other service providers, FTFT Labs can provide its customers with a multicurrency digital wallet that makes sending money to the aforementioned countries easier and more cost-effective than many other remittance services that charge high fees per transfer. Most importantly for FTFT Labs, the Tempo app is a remittance service that its users can trust, with features that make moving money seamless and with in-app customer support at their fingertips. Tempo’s conversion tool means users can remit payments to foreign accounts following currency conversion and hold foreign currencies for users’ convenience; Tempo’s Funds Feature allows users to add funds to the digital wallet easily.

Sean Liu, CEO of FTFT Labs, said of the launch, “Tempo represents an easy, fast and secure way to transfer money cross-border. Working with Currencycloud and using the breadth of its services, it allows us to offer our customers a seamless product from start to finish. We are confident we are making remittance a seamless process for our end users.”

By continuously adding new features to the app, FTFT Labs aims to bring the most innovative, easy-to-use remittance services to the fingertips of an often-overlooked market: US immigrants.
