We offer near-instant international payments that save you in fees and ensure you get the best exchange rates. We began by allowing users outside the U.S. to open USD virtual accounts. We're now enabling conversions into local currencies, adding additional financial products and are expanding globally.
Our story is driven by a unique blend of vision and heritage. Born and raised in the Philippines, Mika
, our CEO, was motivated by her and her freelancer friends' struggles faced with international payments—sky-high fees, snail-paced transaction times, and overall confusing experiences. Pairing this with innovative technological approaches, Parallax was born to tackle this global problem.
Parallax was founded by Mika Reyes
and Alex Kuang
, leading a team with experience in global and Silicon Valley companies like LinkedIn, Meta, Microsoft, Kumu.ph, Medgrocer and more.
