Shares In mid 2016, after sifting through copious amounts of reports, studies and our own internal evaluations we’ve come up with a definitive list of the 30 hottest fintech startups in Singapore. (an updated list for 2019 is also available here ) 2.5 years laters, We thought it’d be an interesting experiment to see what has happened to them and how accurate our picks were. Here’s what they’ve been up to: Fastacash Fastacash , a social payment platform that allows users to transfer value along with digital content through social networks and messaging platforms, has disappeared from the web. The last update we got from Fastacash was in 2017 when Myanmar’s MyPay was reportedly in talks to acquire the company. No official announcement has been made and the Fastacash website has been taken down . Fastacash had raised more than US$23 million in funding. Toast Toast , a remittance startup targeting the unbanked demographic, is still operating though hasn’t given many updates since 2016 when it raised US$1.5 million, its latest funding round. Toast initially used the Bitcoin blockchan to transfer money but the startup eventually gave up using Bitcoin for remittances so it could get licensed in Singapore. It is now transferring money the traditional way but plans to offer loans and insurance using blockchain and smart contracts, according to a March 2018 Reuters report. CoinPip CoinPip is a payments platform helping businesses send money end-to-end to employees, freelancers and contractors around the world in under 48 hours, avoiding bank transfer fees and forex charges. The startup recently launched its crypto-to-fiat system, allowing customers to use cryptocurrencies as payment for remittances and mass payments, a feature designed to ease the hassle of regular payout and salary remittances. Kyepot Kyepot is digital group savings and borrowing platform allowing users to invest, borrow and earn with just a few taps on their phones. Kyepot was incubated by Startupbootcamp Fintech Singapore before it hit Indian shores in 2016. Today, the startup focuses on the Indian market and has partnered with leading chit funds, a type of rotating savings and credit association system practiced in India, including Chetana Chits Haveri and the Mayavaram Financial Chit Corporation. MoolahSense The company recently launched MoolahSense Active Intelligence (MAI), the first blockchain and cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) platform that monitors loans and borrower business activities in real-time in order to prevent and anticipate delinquency, fraud and default. It has also partnered with Vietnam-nased AsiaInvest to develop a digital lending platform for SMEs in Vietnam. M-DAQ Founded by a group of veterans from the forex and securities industries, M-DAQ is a platform that prices and trades exchange-traded products in a multitude of choice currencies by blending “executable” forex rates into equities and futures products. The platform aims to bring down the high forex spreads by working as an Asian forex trading center. Last year, M-DAQ developed a prototype solution in partnership with the Singapore Exchange (SGX) to allow investors to view real-time prices of the component stocks of the Straits Times Index in selected currencies. Canopy Canopy , formerly Mesitis, is an automated account aggregation platform and reporting solution. The platform allows clients to aggregate assets across different geographies and asset classes, and provides daily valuation updates. Canopy has partnered with Credit Suisse, which is also one of the startup’s investors. It raised nearly US$5 million in September 2018 and opened a Swiss office in November to expand its markets. InvoiceInterchange InvoiceInterchange is a P2P invoice trading marketplace that allows businesses to auction their outstanding invoices to investors for immediate cash. InvoiceInterchange has recently announced a partnership with Networked Trade Platform (NTP), a national trade information management platform, to provide greater accessibility to finance for businesses, as well as a partnership and integration with Xero, one of the fastest growing cloud accounting software providers. The company is now focusing on integrating with more cloud accounting software and platforms. OTDocs OTDocs, a blockchain-based data management application for companies in the international trade and supply chain industries to securely manage their flow of documents, has pretty much vanished from the web. Its website has been taken down and the last update we got from OTDocs was in September 2016 when the company won the SMFG Business Development Award. OTDocs participated in Startupbootcamp Fintech Singapore’s 2015 acceleration program . Otonomos Otonomos is a company services bureau for the blockchain and crypto economy, allowing entrepreneurs to form, fund and govern real-world, blockchain-chartered companies.

Ripple Singapore Ripple Singapore, a ripple gateway acting as an entry and exit point for both bullion and a selection of fiat currencies, closed its gateway operations on October 2016. According to a Reddit post, the closure was due to OCBC shutting down the gateway’s back account in early 2016 and the strategic tack by Ripple to do business with banks and financial institutions only. Digix Global Digix Global is a smart asset company on Ethereum. The company tokenizes gold on the Ethereum platform, leveraging blockchain technology for its immutability, transparency and auditability by applying it to precious physical assets. Digix Global is currently promoting the adoption and the use case of our gold-backed token, DGX. It is also launching the first working, live version of the DigixDAO platform.
