Obopay gets $20M, some sent via Obopay

In a clever publicity stunt, Obopay executives contributed to the company's latest round of funding by wiring their investments from their mobile phones' Obopay accounts, according to a report from GigaOM. Obopay had already raised $48 million so the latest round takes the company up to $60 million so far, but the $20 million round isn't complete. Obopay managed to score 41 licenses in order to become a registered money transfer agent in the U.S., which should help the company's platform to become carrier and bank agnostic.
