Cambodia Embracing Digital Payments
The government of Cambodia headed by Prime Minister Hun Sen makes efforts to open the door for modernity and reduce poverty drastically. This could be difficult to achieve due to the number of farmers that depend solely on subsistence farming.
According to the leading FinTech market research firm Kapron Asia, up to 55% of the Cambodians expect the country to become cashless in seven years’ time.
A Visa report in June 2019 revealed that “Cambodians are embracing digital payments. A third of Cambodians expect digital payments will grow in popularity due to their convenience and security compared to cash.”
Also, the study discovered that many Cambodians see electronic payments taking over in the country, as about 80 percent expect to see them in supermarkets, 61 percent in large shopping malls, while 49% expect to see them in chains and convenience stores.
Visa also added that “Cambodians are also showing enthusiasm for new payment technologies, with 24% of those surveyed interested in mobile payments. Roughly one third are interested in contactless payments. A third of Cambodians also showed interest in making payments by scanning a QR code, similar to those used by Visa and many cryptocurrencies, including Electroneum.”
So, all these make it convincing that the recent partnership between Electroneum (ETN) and Cellcard came at the right time. The benefit is expected to be mutual, as Electoneum takes the advantage to expand and showcase its functionalities, while Cambodians get enlightened and modernized for economic expansion and poverty reduction.
