During the recent AWS re:Invent 2016 event in Las Vegas, 2C2P CTO Myo Zaw sat down with e27 to discuss the technological challenges of expanding their business into different markets with varying infrastructure condition.

“For them [new markets such as Nepal and Kazakhstan] it’s very easy to process because they expect only credit card-based processing, which is normal for us in process,” he explained.

Zaw stated that the company is currently looking at cash acceptance as one area that it is planning to grow in the future, as well as peer-to-peer (P2P) processing.
