Kwanji’s revenue model is driven by multiple affiliate agreements with its forex and banking partners, where we as a company keep a percentage share of overall forex transaction value. Percentages vary depending on transaction size, currency pair and originating country. Developed market revenues are between 0.2-1.0%, while in less competitive emerging market currencies this can be 5-10x greater. We are already see a massive jump in our expected 24-month lifetime value for emerging market client
