Hello Brillionnaires ! Ready to revolutionize your crypto experience ? As we saw in our last post, we learned that account abstraction provides many features and improves the user experience to ensure mass adoption of blockchain technology.

Furthermore, the application of these advancements is leading a transformative shift in particular domains, notably in the financial sector.

The digitization of payments through mobile devices has experienced substantial expansion in recent times, particularly in the context of cross-border transactions.

Now let’s take a look at how remittance payment can be defined, and then see how Brillion wants to revolutionize its use.

What are cross-border payments ?
In general, it refers to the transfer of an amount of money from one person to another. More specifically, remittance involves the movement of funds from one location to another, commonly crossing international borders. This monetary transfer is usually initiated by a person who is working in a foreign country, who sends money to their country of origin or to his family.

The market was worth almost $700 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $900 billion by 2026 according to the World Economic Forum!

These figures show that the sector is growing rapidly, particularly as a result of the digitalisation of payment methods. Note that in 2021, a significant 76% of the world’s adult population possessed an account either with a bank, another financial establishment, or a mobile money provider. Nevertheless, 1.4 billion people in the world are still unbanked.

So, in addition to the exponential growth of the cross-border payments market, we need to make it easier for all users to use these services and attract a new audience that is still unbanked.

Indeed, the market is still too traditional, transaction times are still too long, and the costs are still too high for this type of service.
