What the heck is XanPool? XanPool’s software allows anyone to instantly and seamlessly execute and settle crypto to FIAT transactions without taking custody of customer funds.

“XanPool started as a small software innovation in the Peer-to-Peer technology space, allowing users to settle their cryptocurrency to local-currencies within seconds without taking custody risk. Our C2C network has since grown into Asia’s largest decentralized liquidity pool with over US$200 million of liquidity. Today, the network is not only used by cryptocurrency users but also hundreds of underserved businesses that traditional payment processors cannot service due to risk or cost factors which the XanPool network does not have.“

Operating in over 13 countries across will use these funds to further “consolidate its presence in the Asia Pacific region, and expand its product offerings”.

The firm currently operates in Hong Kong, Singapore, India, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.

“In the coming years, XanPool’s network will look more similar to that of the SWIFT Network. Just like SWIFT, XanPool does not hold liquidity itself, instead, it relies on the liquidity of all the participants using the network. Just like SWIFT, XanPool earns fees based on the communication that its software facilitates. But unlike SWIFT, XanPool is compatible with modern payment solutions like Cryptocurrency, Fast-Payments, and E-wallets. You can expect more innovation from XanPool in this direction”
