Our Mission is to Eliminate Currency Risk
We believe a borderless economy can lead to a better future for all people, everywhere. Pangea was once a borderless supercontinent and this concept is central to our mission.
Today, our global economy is more connected than ever, yet financial borders introduce friction whenever doing business internationally. We aim to solve this by eliminating currency risk.
Excellence Backed by Expertise
Pangea was founded in 2019, and after three years of heads-down work, we are ready to launch our flagship product, Pangea Prime. Those three years were full of R&D, millions invested, and countless QA — all led by experts with hundreds of years of experience combined.
