Local fintech firm MyMy has received conditional approval for a large scheme Electronic Money License from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM). The company said that it expects to launch its e-wallet services within the year.
Until all conditional requirements are met by Bank Negara, MyMy remains reserved about disclosing their full product proposition. But while acknowledging the large number of wallets already in the market, MyMy claimed that it isn’t just another e-wallet player.
“Our plans to become the world’s first Shariah-compliant digital bank is still within our sights and will take its form with the right conditions set by our committee and our consortium partners,” said MyMy chairman Tunku Ahmad Burhannudin.
MyMy said it signed Malaysia’s biggest seed fundraising round from Koperasi Tentera in September 2020. It also inked a partnership with Sukaniaga to form Malaysia’s first digital banking consortium last month.
On its official website, MyMy claims to offer “Malaysia’s first real multi-currency account and card”, which allows users to instantly change their ringgit into 11 different currencies (with more to come, apparently) with no hidden fees and real-time exchange rates.
