UnPay's co-founder Ms Jenny Zhao, impressed the judges when she highlighted the platform's unique capability in providing a one-stop, global payment service. As the first company to deliver a comprehensive portfolio of financial services end-to-end, UnPay also has lofty ambitions to construct a global hub that integrates capital and information exchanges for merchants around the world.

Commenting on the state of payment, industry veteran and payment powerhouse, Zhenghua, said that the world is currently embracing mobile payment. As the leader in this area, China has the capability to help emerging markets develop and digitalise their payment ecosystems. These markets, which account for over 60% of the countries worldwide, can upgrade their societies to the next level through digitalisation.

Augmenting his point on China's leadership, Zhenghua observed that China is already in digital payment 4.0 and has ushered in a new era of digital payment. Payment 1.0 started with barter trade, 2.0 with paper money, 3.0 with global credit cards and the current phase of 4.0 with digital payment. 

To enable emerging markets to keep up with the worldwide push for cashless societies, UnPay aims to empower digital payment capabilities via its platform. It also strives to provide an extensive network of payment exchange services worldwide that will increase efficiency in global trade, capital and services.
