Representatives from Zodia Markets expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration, emphasising the potential for corporate clients to accept digital assets and stablecoins as payment for goods and services through Triple-A. They also highlighted the advantage of Zodia Markets' access to liquidity in multiple fiat currencies and wholesale FX liquidity, providing clients with the benefits of both fiat currencies and digital assets. 

Officials from Triple-A emphasised their aim to redefine corporate engagement with digital assets by offering a user-friendly experience while maintaining top-tier compliance standards. They view the partnership as a commitment to empowering businesses with the necessary tools to thrive in an increasingly digital and interconnected global economy relying on stablecoins and digital currencies.
