BlackBerry is working to make BBM a mobile payment platform to send & receive money

BlackBerry is exploring the option to use BBM as another way to send and receive money. In an recent article from re/code, BlackBerry enterprise unit president John Sim “We’re meeting with partners and we are exploring the market,” “Money movement is an important thing.”

Now we have heard about this before thanks to BBM Money, you can learn more about BBM Money here. “Sims noted that BBM has 85 million monthly active users and has seen daily registration rates increase 40 percent since it added support for Gingerbread, an older version of Android still widely used on phones in developing markets.”

    Hope this becomes available. Would seem to provide a service people would use in many parts of the world.
