区块链平台从暹罗商业银行(Siam Commercial Bank)、丰田(Toyota)和SMBC融资8000万美元

2020-6-23 12:28

 

今天,泰国金融科技公司SYNQA宣布在由Siam商业银行子公司SCB 10X和投资管理公司SPARX Group牵头的C轮融资中获得8000万美元。SYNQA是支付解决方案Omise和基于区块链的OMG网络(以前叫做OmiseGO)背后的公司。


其他参与这轮融资的知名企业包括丰田金融服务公司(TFS)、三井住友银行公司(SMBC)、SMBC风险投资公司(SMBCVC)和Aioi Nissay Dowa保险公司(ADI)。


SYNQA创始人兼首席执行官长谷川俊(Jun Hasegawa)表示:“这笔资金将加快子公司开发优质产品和服务,更好地连接人们、企业和社会。”


SYNQA成立于2015年,名为Omise Holdings,目前正致力于从现金支付转向数字支付,特别是在COVID-19社会距离规范的背景下。


SYNQA从2013年开始为在线卖家运营Omise支付网关解决方案,与区块链无关。该公司表示,将利用这笔新资金为其在线支付和结算解决方案增加更多功能和服务。该公司还预计将组建一家新的金融科技子公司,具体细节未透露。


同时,公司在2017年建立了OMG网络。它为Ethereum提供了一个二层扩展解决方案,也称为sidechains,可以提高性能。它提供支付、积分和其他金融应用的解决方案。


OMG网络之前从其OMG加密货币ICO筹集了2500万美元。


该公司还运营着收购数字资产的Go交易所,但该交易所已于今年1月关闭。


SYNQA支持丰田去年年底推出的“丰田钱包”应用程序的开发。Synqa首席执行官长谷川俊(Jun Hasegawa)创立了日本区块链开发精品BUIDL,去年被数字资产平台证券化收购。今年早些时候,BUIDL还与丰田合作开发了区块链数字和车辆身份解决方案。


在谈到C系列投资时,SCB 10X首席执行官阿拉克•苏蒂翁表示:“这种战略合作伙伴关系进一步加强了我们两家机构之间的关系。我们相信,我们会携手推出创新和新服务,帮助企业在数字化的未来转型和蓬勃发展。”


泰国的SCB正在使用RippleNet进行跨境支付。

 

Today, Thai fintech firm SYNQA announced it raised $80 million in a Series C funding round led by Siam Commercial Bank unit SCB 10X and investment management company SPARX Group. SYNQA is the company behind the payment solutions Omise, and the blockchain-based OMG Network, formerly called OmiseGO. 

Other big names who participated in the funding round included Toyota Financial Services Corporation (TFS), Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC), SMBC Venture Capital (SMBCVC) and Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance Corporation (ADI). 

“This funding will accelerate the development of quality products and services by our subsidiaries to better connect people, businesses and society,” said Jun Hasegawa, founder, and CEO of SYNQA.

Founded in 2015 as Omise Holdings, SYNQA is working on making a shift to digital payments from cash, especially amid the COVID-19 social distancing norms. 

SYNQA has been operating the Omise payments gateway solution for online sellers since 2013, unrelated to blockchain. The company said it would use the new funding to add more features and services to its online payments and settlement solutions. It also anticipates forming a new fintech subsidiary, details of which were not divulged. 

Meanwhile, the company established the OMG Network in 2017. It provides a layer two scaling solution for Ethereum, otherwise known as sidechains, which improve performance. It offers solutions for payments, loyalty points, and other financial applications. 

The OMG Network previously raised $25 million from the ICO of its OMG cryptocurrency. 

It also operated the Go Exchange for digital assets, but that was shuttered in January. 

SYNQA is supporting the development of the Toyota Wallet App, which was launched by the Japanese automaker late last year. Synqa CEO Jun Hasegawa founded the Japanese blockchain development boutique BUIDL, which was acquired last year by digital asset platform Securitize. Earlier this year, BUIDL also worked with Toyota on a blockchain digital and vehicle identity solution.

Talking about the Series C investment, Arak Sutivong, CEO of SCB 10X said: “This strategic partnership further strengthens the relationship between our two organizations. We believe that together we will bring forward innovations and new services to help enterprises transform and thrive in the digital future.” 

Thailand’s SCB is using RippleNet for cross-border payments.
