TransferWise, the Estonian-founded money transfer platform, broke a Guinness record in Estonia, by creating the world’s largest currency symbol made out of people.

The company gathered employees from across its five offices in Europe and the US to complete the giant euro symbol, made up of 350 people from 35 different nationalities. It overtook the previous world record of 327 people, held by the North East Chamber of Commerce (UK), Estonian World reported.

TransferWise has expanded its team by over 200% in the past twelve months. In late June, everyone from across the company’s five offices met up for the bi-annual company holiday “Summer Days”, which took place in Estonia.

TransferWise is the international money transfer platform based on peer-to-peer technology. Launched in 2011, it is one of the most successful fintech startups in Europe, having raised $91 million in funding.
