The partnership between Grupo Tortooga and BlocPal has been formed as part of GMM’s strategy to offer its 40 million customers and 60 thousand merchant partners in Mexico with a new upcoming suite of digital financial services.
Grupo Tortooga will work together with BlocPal to deliver key initial features for the Tortooga digital wallet, enabling digital payments for pre-paid airtime, mobile data and utility bills. The development plan for the Tortooga digital wallet will involve solutions for micropayments and remittances across North America and will support international currencies including MXN, USD, and CAD.
The Tortooga digital wallet will serve as a key platform for additional financial services to be developed and offered to GMM’s customers and partners. Planned, new features to be integrated will include more options for deposits and withdrawals and support for new currencies, including major digital currencies.
