Shyft, the global blockchain-based network that facilitates the secure sharing of attested and compliant data, has announced the signing of a Letter of Understanding with Bitt, a Barbados-based fintech company that facilitates secure peer-to-peer transactions through its mobile payments software, mMoney.
As part of this partnership, Bitt will become an active ecosystem participant utilizing the Shyft network for data transaction needs across Caribbean territories.
Shyft’s data transaction network allows participating financial institutions to act as ‘trust anchors’, perform attestations, and share trusted and verified data among customers participating in the pilot. The two leading companies will leverage their respective strengths in a mandate of strengthening corresponding bank connectivity while reducing costs associated with KYC and AML compliance.
