Borqs Technologies (NASDAQ: BRQS) is down 2% after the embedded software and Internet of things (ioT0 products) announced an agreement with Zippie to develop IoT autonomous payment solutions. The company and the Singapore-based blockchain append payments platform firm, Zippie, will jointly create the solutions to serve the growing digital currency transactions demand. Zippie is a Web3.0 payments platform pioneer using blockchain tech.
Zippie allows sending and receiving programmable payments with cash and digital assets, including tokens, loyalty points, airtime, and gift cards.
Most importantly, Zippie is in the process of getting an e-money permit in the EU and other strategic regions.

With these developments, BRQS is worth watching in the coming months.
