Blockchain firm Lightnet has announced its collaboration with MoneyGram, a provider of cross-border P2P payments and money transfers.

The integration and implementation of Lightnet’s technology with MoneyGram‘s money transfer services provides customers with a wide selection of payout services across South East Asia.

This collaboration centers around Bridgenet, Lightnet’s first-layer solution, which connects Money Transfer Operators (MTOs) to MoneyGram’s money transfer services.

Lightnet said that the solution creates true interoperability between existing banking rails and non-bank agent networks, while bridging the gap between different entities thereby enabling companies to deliver excellent services to their users.
