NEW YORK, Sept. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Future FinTech Group Inc. (NASDAQ: FTFT) ("hereinafter referred to as "Future FinTech", "FTFT" or "the Company"), a blockchain application technology developer and fintech service provider, announced that Future FinTech Labs ("FTFT Labs"), a wholly subsidiary of the Company, has teamed up with Currency Cloud Inc. ("Currencycloud"), 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.
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 who 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 payment to foreign accounts following currency conversion and hold foreign currencies for users’ convenience; Tempo’s Funds Feature allows users to easily add funds to the digital wallet.
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. To learn more about the Tempo app, please visit http://ftfttempo.com.
