Could you offer help with relocation Zack? I am sure lots of people would love the idea of moving to Thailand :003:


Hi Aston

Yes we can also help with relocation. We can issue work permit. We have helped a couple of developers relocate.


This sounds like a great project. I spent three years traveling in this area and was always dismayed when I realised how much people had to pay of their salary to send money home to family who relied on them. Glad to know you are doing this. I am curious who your target market is and also whether you are planning to expand to other countries? Out of curiosity, are you leveraging lightning network?

No we are not using lightning network. We built our own network and tech stack.


Also to answer your question.

  1. Who our target market is

    Anyone who wants to keep most of their earnings when sending money cross-border.

  2. Do we plan on expanding to other countries?

    Yes this is definitely in the works. As of right now we allow sending FROM Thailand to > 40 countries. However we will also enable sending FROM other countries eventually.

Great! I am very excited for your project. Very nice name as well. Translates to “GoodMoney”, right?
You will make a big difference in the lives of people who can do with help. Instead of a business that employes 10 people, you are building something that can effectively give millions of people a *+% raise!
