“Triple-A is delighted to be part of the Visa Accelerator Program. This partnership is a unique opportunity for businesses to tap into the growing 300 million plus digital currencies user community through digital currency payments and payouts,” Triple-A Founder & CEO, Eric Barbier, said.

SINGAPORE – Visa, the world leader in digital payments, has selected Singapore-based digital currencies payments provider Triple-A to join a select group of five elite startups from the region for the 2022 cohort of its Visa Accelerator Program in Asia Pacific.

Over the next six months, the startups will work closely with Visa on creating defined commercial opportunities they can bring to Visa’s extensive network of bank, merchant, government and venture partners. Through the program, Triple-A, licensed by MAS, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, aims to develop new payment innovations involving the use of digital currencies and blockchain technology.

“Triple-A is delighted to be part of the Visa Accelerator Program. This partnership is a unique opportunity for businesses to tap into the growing 300 million plus digital currencies user community through digital currency payments and payouts,” Triple-A Founder & CEO, Eric Barbier, said.

“Consumers and businesses are looking for more seamless and convenient ways to pay and be paid given the huge shift to digital. At Visa, we are constantly working with our partners, including Fintechs to create new payment experiences that can scale.

We are also proud to be able to help Triple-A further expand their footprint globally and introduce them to different partners in the region,” Visa’s Country Manager for Singapore and Brunei, Kunal Chatterjee said.

With the COVID-19 pandemic accelerating the world’s migration towards a digital-first future, the 2022 cohort will tackle some of the most pressing financial and technological issues that came to prominence in recent years. The four other companies located across the Asia Pacific region that will join Triple-A in the program include:

  • Cymonz, an international payments and currency exchange platform based in New Zealand, will simplify and expand money movement to enable new ways to pay and be paid
  • Moneytree, a financial data aggregation platform based in Japan and
