CEX.io Launches Bitcoin Exchange Service in Latin America
Bitcoin exchange CEX.io has partnered with payment solution provider AstroPay to launch local currency account deposits and withdrawals in Latin America.
Prior to the partnership, CEX.io users in Latin America were only able to deposit and withdraw funds via bank transfers or cards.
“Such operations were only possible in USD or EUR, which was very expensive for them,” said Helga Danova, communications officer.
The new integration, she added, will enable customers in Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Mexico and Uruguay to purchase bitcoin with local currency.
Consumers in China and Turkey will also be able to fund their CEX.io accounts with their local currencies using AstroPay.
