Ltd., has entered into a memorandum of understanding (the "MOU") with Pi Pay, a payments solutions platform headquartered in Cambodia, to explore an international payments alliance between various countries including but not limited to Cambodia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia. This partnership will allow OxPay and Pi Pay to connect their respective platforms not only to offer convenient wallet-to-wallet payments, remittances and other services, but also to develop new solutions that are not of payment nature.

Through our collaboration, we hope to increase connectivity for both the payment and remittance services.
