BVNK Expands Operational Reach with EMI License for European Markets

BVNK, a financial services provider, announced today the
acquisition and activation of its Electronic Money Institution (EMI)
license in Europe. The development includes the acquisition and
operationalization of System Pay Services (Malta) Limited, the EU EMI entity
based in Malta, along with the activation of its UK EMI.

Fully Licensed Status Expands Access to Key Payment Schemes

This development enables BVNK to offer enhanced
Business-to-Business payment services for both Euro (EUR) and Pound Sterling
(GBP), facilitating more efficient operations and enhanced customer support
capabilities.

The B2B payments sector, valued at approximately $113
trillion, is anticipated to grow to $137 trillion by 2027, highlighting the
increasing demand for global payment solutions as businesses expand across
borders. BVNK aims to address this demand by unifying banks and blockchains
through its modern payments platform, allowing businesses to send and receive
payments in any currency, whether digital or fiat.

With its newfound status as a fully licensed electronic
money institution in both Europe and the UK, BVNK can now provide named
vIBANs in EUR and GBP, offering fast access to prominent payment schemes in the
UK and Europe, including SEPA, SEPA Instant, CHAPS, and Faster Payments.
