Get to know CrossKudi

Milwaukee-based CrossKudi continues to revolutionize the way people are sending money. Unlike old-school money transfer companies that take a little piece with every step of the transfer, CrossKudi eliminates burdensome fees, while allowing users to send money to individuals and merchants all over the world.

This inclusive platform capitalizes on blockchain technology to offer immigrants and underserved communities an alternative designed to facilitate frequent transfers and protect hard-earned dollars. In some cases, CrossKudi can even be a source of passive income for some.

CrossKudi Inspiration

The company name is a reference to the international transactions that have been a central part of the lives of immigrants living abroad.
