Global Money Express Co. to strengthen its global payments presence through Roxe’s blockchain technology
Roxe, a blockchain-based payments company that is powering the next generation of payment solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with GME (Global Money Express Co., Ltd).

By utilizing Roxe’s technology and the Roxe Instant Settlement Network (RISN), GME will generate value for end customers by removing barriers of time, geography, and currency.

Driven by accelerated growth, e-commerce players continue to explore the new technology that can create a convenient and reliable payment process, which helps ensure that customers shop more frequently at online stores.
