The SouthEast Asian internet giant adds that much of its growth were attributed to the pandemic lock-downs, where online shopping and gaming rose significantly during this period.

The company has also expanded upon its financial services business, SeaMoney, with payment volumes for the company’s e-wallet exceeded US$1.6 billion across 15 million paying users for the quarter.
