- A payment processor and a registered Electronic Money Institution, Capital Financial Services S.A. Twispay, has been acquired by Elrond.
- The acquisition will involve the sale of Capital Financial Services S.A. shares, which may be utilized by the Elrond Network to provide greater financial services access in a fully legal manner.
The Romanian Central Bank has given the go-ahead for Twispay to be acquired by Elrond, a move that will have far-reaching implications for digital finance in Europe. The two companies have been working closely together for some time, and the acquisition will allow Twispay to take its place as a leading player in the European payments market. Elrond, a blockchain company specializing in distributed apps, was permitted to acquire the electronic money business Capital Financial Services, which operates under the brand Twispay.
The move is also seen as a vote of confidence in the Romanian economy, which has been recovering steadily since the global financial crisis. Elrond is buying Twispay for the purpose of establishing itself as a link between conventional finance and the cryptocurrency world. The acquisition places Elrond in a good position to provide a payment infrastructure that is both faster and less expensive.
