How do the tightened regulations in FX and binary options affect SafeCharge?
We are pleased to see the tightened regulation development as it will clearly define what brokers do and don’t practice. Our product roadmap contains significant investment in the embedding of a set of KYC measures into the payments process in order to provide an integrated service to the broker. These solutions will become essential to brokers in order to comply with the developing regulation.
What are your goals for the company over the next few years?
We are committed to developing innovative payments solutions to serve the emerging need for regulation compliance, as well as a solid and easy to use payments solution that facilitates the growth of the new economies.
