Norwegian Block Exchange, with the founder of Norwegian Bank and Norwegian Airways Bjørn Kjos as the majority owner, and SPENN Technology, have signed the agreement that will generate remittance payment for SPENN and give NBX access to the African market through the SPENN connect product.
The partnership enables users to transfer money instantaneously in what will become the most prize competitive remittance solution.
“We love SPENN’s focus on financial inclusion. This partnership will significantly lower the cost of money transfer, which is especially relevant on the African continent, where many people struggle to make a living and where financial cost are extremely high,” says Bjørn Kjos.
Norwegian Block Exchange has a customer base throughout the Nordics and beyond. Headquartered in Oslo, NBX is registered with the Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway. NBX’s goal is to make cryptocurrency widely available and let anyone take part in secure, efficient, and user-friendly services based on blockchain technology.
The partnership between NBX and SPENN Technology also allows for users of either platform to purchase and sell crypto currencies across geographical regions.
“So far, our focus has been on the Nordics. With SPENN, we can expand our offering to the African market, which has the highest uptake of crypto usage, and which is very friendly towards blockchain and cryptocurrency technology. I have been a follower and fan of SPENN Technology for years and have always felt certain that our paths would cross, which they now do,” says Stig A. Kjos-Mathiesen, CEO of NBX.
Jens Glaso, CEO of SPENN Technology, states: “This is a great recognition of the quality product we have developed over years. NBX has selected SPENN as their partner and gateway to the African market, which is our stronghold. Purchasing access to our users through the SPENN Connect offering, will generate revenue for SPENN while expanding our user base.”
“This is our joint contribution to financial inclusion and lower cost of financial services on the African continent,” adds Glaso.
