National Research Council Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) Approves PeerFX Grant, Proving Viability to Investors

    VANCOUVER, June 24 /CNW/ - PeerFX has achieved another company milestone,
converting more believers out of skeptics. On June 1st, NRC-IRAP confirmed a
grant of $125,000 to support PeerFX's development efforts. This additional
funding will allow PeerFX to expand its in-house technical team with an
additional full-time hire to foster development speed and time to market.

online currency exchange helping customers save money on every transaction.
The NRC-IRAP grant is a vote of confidence for PeerFX and will instil
confidence in both potential investors and business partners.
