Embracing the Challenges of Global Payments with Groundbreaking Solutions

To ensure adequate liquidity for global transactions, financial institutions rely on their own equity or credit from lenders. However, these practices limit their capital structures and present opportunity costs for growing transaction volumes. Likewise, lenders such as banks encounter challenges in funding financial institutions due to a lack of operational transparency and robust risk management.

In response to these challenges in the global payments industry, Arf introduced the world’s first RWA-based working capital solution for global transactions. Arf Liquidity brings internet speed to international payments, and addresses a $4 trillion liquidity gap through blockchain technology. Supported by Stellar, Arf is at the forefront of providing enhanced access to the global financial system, proving the practical value of blockchain in solving real-world financial challenges.

“As a steadfast supporter of Arf’s innovative journey, we are thrilled to witness their remarkable achievement of reaching $1 billion in onchain liquidity volume on Stellar,” said Phil Meng, Head of Treasury and Capital Markets at Stellar Development Foundation. “This milestone is proof of utility realized, using a Stellar asset and rails for cross-border settlements to solve a real pain point for payment companies and advance global payments. Arf’s success is a testament to the power of blockchain technology in creating equitable access to financial services, and we are proud to be part of this transformative journey. We’re excited to see the next phases, especially with the recent enablement of smart contracts on Stellar.”

Innovation Beyond Financing: Arf’s Transparency Protocol

Arf’s commitment to innovation extends to its onchain transparency protocol, a testament to leveraging blockchain’s core attribute: transparency. This protocol ensures that all financial activities, including liquidity provision, repayments, and overdue payments, are accurately represented onchain.

For financial institutions, it means access to traceable transactions and scalable liquidity solutions.
