Singapore-incorporated, South Korea-focused stablecoin creator Terra has signed a major Korean B2B platform to its alliance of internet marketplaces.
According to a report on Econonews, a local financial website, Terra has agreed to work with Sinsang Market, a company that links vendors at Seoul's Dongdaemun fashion market with customers in Korea and elsewhere in the world.
The two will develop a payments system to offer end-to-end capabilities for wholesale transactions, including payments, settlement and delivery.
It will utilize CHAI, a South Korean mobile payments platform powered by Terra's blockchain technology.
Dongdaemun fashion market is one of the largest fashion wholesale markets globally, with an estimated $12 billion of turnover but at present it remains fragmented and relative poorly developed in terms of logistics and payment services.
According to other local press reports, Sinsang Market works with 18,000 wholesalers carrying 28 million products.
One of Terra's core strategies is to build an alliance of ecommerce sites and operate as a payment platform for them.
The Terra coin may also be offered as an incentive for those making purchases on these sites.
Terra has approximately 25 such relationships already.
Terra, which is incorporated in Singapore as TerraForm Labs, was founded in 2018 by Daniel Shin, who also founded TMON, and has broad connections with South Korea's Kakao and investment from Seattle-based Arrington XRP Capital.
