Ron Berndsen said: “It is a pleasure for me to join Quantoz Payments, as Chairman of the Supervisory Board, a fintech company that wants to tokenise the economy. The Stablecoins solutions that Quantoz Payments offers are blockchain-based with a solid connection to fiat currency, not cryptocurrency.”
With Quantoz Payments, Quantoz becomes a full-service digitized money payment provider with a European e-money license for specific payment use cases such as machine to machine payments. Quantoz Payments will provide its partners the ability to easily integrate digitized money into their business so that they can create and manage their own financial ecosystem.
Nick Haasnoot, CEO of Quantoz N.V.: “By providing a full-service model, including the Quantoz backend technology, an e-money license and compliance procedures, Quantoz Payments removes the entrance barriers for new partners. Partners no longer need to arrange their own permits and licenses, build a compliance organization and develop their frontend technology, but can focus on marketing their value proposition to customers. We are happy and honoured that Ron has joined us in this new business venture and we are convinced that his contribution will help Quantoz Payments become an established and successful player in the payments industry.”
