The announcement highlights that Tempo France and nTokens have a common belief that the project is set to represent a ‘technological breakthrough’ within the South American money transfer corridor, where Brazil accounts for approximately USD 5 billion on a yearly basis.

Commenting on the announcement, Thomaz Teixeira, CEO of nTokens stated that being a rapidly developing and ambitious high-tech company, the fintech is on the constant lookout for new opportunities to expand its activities’ geography and new channels for cooperation. The company representative believes tokenisation can find its applications within each finance sphere and beyond, with the joint project with Tempo France thought to exemplify this and provide the chance to demonstrate all the advantages associated with blockchain technology to clients in the remittances space.

When talking about the nTokens – Tempo France integration, the remittances are increasingly secure, and when in the last stage of the transfers, the payouts are carried out through PIX, an instant payment network of the Brazilian Central Bank. This is believed to be a recognition of high quality, together with an indicator of the most modern standards of security for transfers.

The announcement further details that Tempo France and nTokens alike consider South America, and Brazil more particularly, to be promising remittance corridors, with the volume of money transfers between the EU and Brazil expected to increase from 5% to 10% in 2023.
