SBI Remit

SBI Remit enables Thai nationals
in Japan to send money home instantly

SBI Remit, in collaboration with Siam Commercial Bank (SCB), is using Ripple’s blockchain enterprise solution, xCurrent, to power real-time remittance payments between Japan and Thailand.

This makes it possible for 47,000 Thai nationals living in Japan to send money home faster. SBI Remit’s customers can use ATMs to instantly send money in JPY to a recipient’s SCB savings account in Thailand and receive funds in THB within seconds. Before offering this service, recipients were required to retrieve cash through an agent.
