Crunchfish Digital Cash integrated with Mojaloop payment platform for financial inclusion

Crunchfish has completed an integration of Digital Cash with the Mojaloop payment platform. Financial service providers will now be able to offer its users the ability to perform payments with Mojaloop even when offline. Mojaloop fits very well with Crunchfish’s ambition to expand its presence outside India and to increase financial inclusion across the globe.

Mojaloop Foundation is a charitable nonprofit and maintains its free, open-source software Mojaloop and the surrounding community as a public goods in service of financial inclusion. Mojaloop serves as a reference model for creating interoperable payments platforms connecting all digital financial providers and customers, especially the financially excluded. With an initial focus in Africa, the foundation is expanding its engagement where there is the greatest opportunity to directly affect financial inclusion through interoperable payments, looking to address the critical challenges faced by underserved communities.

By adding offline payment capabilities through Digital Cash, these underserved communities will no longer be dependent on telecom and internet infrastructure to be able to perform mobile payments, which further strengthens Mojaloop Foundation’s mission to increase financial inclusion. Crunchfish will work together with the Mojaloop Foundation to engage with digital financial service providers, regulators, non-governmental organizations and governmental offices, including CBDC initiatives.

Mojaloop was designed by a team of leading tech and fintech companies: Coil, Crosslake Technologies, Dwolla, ModusBox, Ripple, and Software Group with support and funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

“We are very proud to now be part of the Mojaloop community. Digital Cash is a great step towards financial inclusion as it enables users to pay with a mobile phone, even when there is lack of telecom and internet infrastructure. The Mojaloop Foundation focuses on the same markets as we see great interest in for Digital Cash, which forms a perfect base for our collaboration.", says Joachim Samuelsson, Crunchfish’s CEO.
