Tranglo, a Southeast Asian fintech firm, is integrating Ripple’s remittance technology. According to Estee Lau, Tranglo’s project manager, the company started implementing Ripple’s technology in November 2019.

Alipay is the world’s largest mobile payment platform, with 1.2 billion users. 

As part of the partnership, Tranglo will facilitate seamless cross-border remittances to users of Alipay, who will be able to receive quick and secure money transfers within the app.
