Bringing people together to interact and transact

lines03

Whether it’s a gig economy employee working in one country and wanting to send money to another, someone purchasing a product or service in another currency, or transacting in crypto; today’s global customers are interacting in a much different way financially than ever before. What’s more, current financial entities leave many people underserved—and are often expensive, inefficient, and unreliable.

Yaka was born to change all of that. Combining innovation with deep experience in regulation and connections to partner financial systems networks across the globe, we offer the first truly simple, comprehensive, compliant, and safe way to send, receive, and spend money globally. With Yaka, everyone can have a portable digital wallet that, just like a physical wallet, can be used anywhere and anytime. Yaka also solves the challenges for applications and marketplaces, enabling them to easily and seamlessly incorporate and accept payments.
