MoneyGram and Stellar’s partnership!
MoneyGram and Stellar’s partnership started in October 2021, when both the companies went on to collaborate the connection of digital wallets to the Stellar network, thereby granting users access to MoneyGram’s global retail platform. MoneyGram certainly feels that cryptocurrency is the new age revolution and is here to stay. It also feels that, collaborating with Stellar will help MoneyGram to grow its network in the crypto sphere. Previously, MoneyGram had announced a series of partnerships with Stellar which were more or less successful. The utilization of blockchain technology was one of the prominent collaborations between the two. MoneyGram also went on to invest in crypto firms such as investing in Coinme (The largest Licensed Cryptocurrency Cash Exchange in the U.S)

Crypto Market Crash and its impact.
The Crypto market crash was a catastrophic one which wiped out billions of dollars from the market. The Terra’s inability to save both of its stablecoins made the crash look more fatal than it was. But, Homes has been optimistic about cryptocurrency from the start. He feels cryptocurrency is here to stay and its volatile nature cannot influence the investors to stop trading in it.
The news of partnership between MoneyGram and Stellar will surely help the market to grow and revive back from the crash. Though the extent of revival will only depend on the type of measures these companies take and the behavior of the investors will directly influence the market after such a debacle.
