TriplePoint client Social Gold has partnered with international payment networks GASH and MyCard, expanding its reach into Southeast Asia.
Partnerships with GASH and MyCard allow the virtual goods monetization platform to support local currency payments from users in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Macau. Social Gold will now support more Asian currencies, including the Taiwan dollar, Hong Kong dollar, Singapore dollar and Malaysian ringgits. The partnerships allow for Social Gold to immediately start supporting virtual economies for communities such as Miniclip, Tagged, Ohai and Lolapps.
Further support for local currencies in new locations makes it easier for Social Gold to do what they do best: support developers in creating and maintaining virtual economies with the help of customized payment options. According to Vertical Wire, co-founder and CEO of Social Gold Vikas Gupta says, “By working closely with international payment partners such as GASH and MyCard, we’ve developed the Social Gold platform to be more comprehensive and effective in monetizing audiences in global markets.”
