New York-based payment startup SendFriend, focused on the use of XRP tokens for international money transfers, closed a $ 1.7 million round of financing from Barclays Bank and fintech company Ripple, CoinDesk reports.

Mastercard Foundation, MIT Media Lab, Techstars Incubator, Mahindra Finance, 2020 Ventures and 8 Decimal Capital also participated in the round.

Note that SendFriend got into the business accelerator "Barclays powered by TechStars" in September 2018.

According to the representatives of the startup, the funds raised will be used to expand the staff, work with the community and marketing.

Initially, a startup will focus on labor migrants from the Philippines who regularly make remittances to their homeland from the United States. Converting US dollars to XRP tokens, and then to the Philippine peso, according to SendFriend, will take a few seconds.

It is noteworthy that SendFriend commissions will be 65% below the average in the traditional cross-border transfer industry.

Earlier, BlockFi, a company operating in the cryptocurrency lending market, has attracted investments from Coinbase Ventures.
