I have come across so many ideas from all sectors of the economy which offers the use of blockchain technology to solve different problems which the world has been facing for so long. Today I will be taking about the remittance and payment industry, the challenges it faces currently and a unique idea which is being presented by a group of experts to give a long lasting solution we have long desired. Prior to now, the remittance and payment industry has been built on an old-fashioned infrastructure which is bonded with both delays in transactions and fees that are high and thus doesn’t serve the interest of its sophisticated customer base anymore.

ETHA’S WORKING PRINCIPLES
Remittance solution: Etha develops a platform never seen in the world before as it will be the first to facilitate crypto to fiat transfers giving all kinds of users ability to send fiat money with digital currencies giving senders ability to select different kinds of payout options for the recipient, such as Direct to Bank, Local (Cash) Pick-Up or Mobile Top Up. Etha has a unique plan to send money to mover than 190 different countries across the globe.
Cross-border financing: with this it becomes easy for cryptocurrency to be utilized as collateral for the execution of fiat transfer, without cryptocurrencies liquidation. The refund process for the initial collateral will be automated by the smart contract in a truthful manner to the borrower, once repayment of both principal and interest rates is settled according to agreed lending terms.
Decentralized lending: with this, borrowers can have complete access to all kinds of loans from different lenders who have decided to lend out their funds upon agreement. The lending terms are such that it will be set by the borrower and then fulfilled by the lender. Upon confirming terms by both parties, smart contract will then require the borrower to deposit collateral in the form of cryptocurrency to provide lenders protection against a default by the borrower.
Etha has an ecosystem that is a sophisticated infrastructure being the driving force which serves customer’s ever growing needs and market demand that will experience new era financial services. Etha has its own token with the symbol ETA which is the vital element of the unique Etha ecosystem and with it, customers will be able to settle fees associated with all kinds of services on the Etha platform. Work done on the Etha ecosystem will be compensated for with ETA token. The Etha ecosystem is a unique one consisting of different layers which includes;
