All members of Arf Network settle in USDC within Arf Network 24/7 and instantly. This results in significant decrease of treasury management need or the risk of insufficient funds from sending party during the settlement.

The most important benefit is that instant settlements enable any money service businesses in Arf Network to launch new corridors immediately in various regions without extra working capital, a.k.a. prefunding.

SINGLE CONTRACT & SINGLE API

FOR 80% REDUCTION IN GO-TO-MARKET TIME

Arf Network has a unilateral contract approach (instead of bilateral) so that you only need to sign a single contract with Arf, only integrate Arf Client API and go through due diligence only once to gain unlimited access to all services provided by Arf Network Members.

Single Contract

Arf Network Members are all onboarded by Arf by a single due diligence process and a single
Client Service Agreement (CSA). The CSA manages the relationship between network members and sets the transparent pricing across the entire network. No 1:1 negotiations or relationship development is needed.

Single API

Arf already integrated all the technology of its Payout Partners on Arf Network to Arf Client API. As a result, all you need to do is to integrate the Arf API to connect to all of the Arf Network Members instantly.

Transparent Data Sharing

KYC and transactional data are transparently shared among Arf Network Members via Arf API for compliance with local regulations and laws.

80% Reduction in Go-To-Market Time

Arf’s Single Contract & Single API approach reduces the go-to-market time by as much as 80% if you are using the Arf Network for 2 or more corridors.
