OVO holds years of experience enabling mobile payments in Turkey. Among some of their products include the oWallet which leverages Apple Wallet and Android Wallet tech to easily give insights into customer spending habits and help companies improve their relationships with their customers.
Turkish business owners will be able to use Pundi X products such as the XPOS (which are capable of enabling blockchain-based transactions with a card swipe) and the XPASS (which acts as a digital wallet for digital assets) to facilitate the ownership of crypto assets for their customers.
