The Middle East market is one of the most critical markets for WadzPay as it provides multiple opportunities within the payments space. Akin to other parts of the world, this region is moving towards cashless payments; online shopping is surging, and demand is increasing at a rapid rate for diversity in payment methods and alternative payment solutions. Blockchain technology allows for verification without being dependent on third parties, and as data structure in a blockchain is append-only, data cannot be altered or deleted.
“Parag is a payment industry expert in sales and marketing, whilst Khaled is an industry pioneer and seasoned business leader with a deep passion for financial industry services. Their experience and passion combined within the payment realms are extremely complimentary; they make the perfect addition to the WadzPay team. We look forward to working with them as we accelerate our strategy to bring ourselves to the Middle East and other international markets. Our inimitable human resources establish our competitive advantage and will spearhead our global adoption plan by 2023,” added Anish.
