MoneyGram Enables Crypto Transactions Via Mobile App For US Customers

MoneyGram International has rolled out a new service enabling consumers to buy, sell and hold cryptocurrency via the MoneyGram mobile app. This new feature will enable MoneyGram customers to trade and store Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC) through its mobile app across most of the U.S. states.

The company is providing this new feature through its existing partnership with Coinme, a licensed crypto exchange and API-driven crypto-as-a-service provider.

MoneyGram and Coinme have partnered to expand access to crypto by creating thousands of new locations in the U.S. for consumers to buy and sell bitcoin with cash since 2021.

MoneyGram said it is expected to expand its future selection of crypto coins as the Company explores expansion to other markets in 2023, as global regulations allow.

The company said this is the latest crypto-related service launch from a company bringing real-world cryptocurrency and blockchain use cases to life.

MoneyGram initially offered digital wallet service through partnerships with Coinme, Stellar and G-Coin as well as cross-border blockchain-enabled payment settlement through Circle’s USD Coin (USDC) for near-instant backend settlement.

Indonesia Q3 GDP Growth Improves Less Than Expected

Indonesian economic growth improved at a slower-than-expected pace in the three months ended September, official data revealed on Monday.

Gross domestic product advanced 5.72 percent year-over-year in the third quarter, slightly faster than the 5.45 percent rise in the second quarter, Statistics Indonesia reported. This was the biggest expansion since the second quarter of 2021.

However, that was below the 5.89 percent rise expected by economists.

On the expenditure-side, household consumption grew 5.39 percent annually in the September quarter and gross fixed capital formation rose 4.96 percent.

Exports registered a positive growth of 21.64 percent and imports posted 22.98 percent expansion. Meanwhile, government final consumption declined 2.88 percent.

On a quarterly basis, GDP climbed 1.81 percent in the third quarter, following a 3.72 percent rise in the second quarter. The expected growth was 1.62 percent.

The better-than-expected GDP report should give the central bank some space to tighten aggressively, especially with the recent slide in the rupiah, Nicholas Mapa, an economist at ING said.

Capital Economics’ economist Gareth Leather said lower commodity prices, tighter monetary policy and elevated inflation are likely to drag on growth over the coming quarters.

The economist forecasts Indonesia’s economic growth to slow from around 6.5 percent this year to 5.5 percent in 2023.
