Fastacash™, A Secure Global Social Payments Platform, Announces The Completion Of Series A Funding

"We are offering a new way of transferring value with just a secure link. People or companies can now share stories, photos and experiences when sending value. Every action of sharing is accompanied by an emotional sentiment," said Vince Tallent, Chairman and CEO, fastacash™.

He added, "Our solution is adaptable across multiple platforms. We are looking to work closely with our partners from different industries to understand the respective consumer behavior and to offer the best use of the link generation technology, which will lead to an enhanced end consumer experience. Our vision is to create a global network by connecting our partners, where moving value can be simple, secure and done across multiple social networks and messaging platforms."  

As the technology enabler who provides the know-how and expertise, fastacash™ will work with companies, including banks, remittance service providers, mobile operators, social networks, gaming companies and consumer brands, to integrate their solutioninto their partners' existing or new systems.

With the completion of Series A funding, fastacash™ will focus on partnerships and the expansion of its global footprint. "The concept of transferring value through social networks is unique and represents huge market potential given the increasing dominance of social platforms in people's lives. The fastacash™ technology is going to change how people transfer value and we are confident that fastacash™, with its experienced leadership team and innovative technology, is entering the market at the right time and poised for great success," said Amit Anand, Managing Partner, Jungle Ventures, a venture firm focused on supporting startups that showcase strong technology and innovation capabilities across Asia Pacific.
