CEX.io expands operations in Latin America

Announcements | July 22, 2015 By:

On Friday, July 17, CEX.io announced partnership with payment solution provider AstroPay to launch local currency account deposits and withdrawals in Latin America.

“Such operations were only possible in USD or EUR, which was very expensive for them,” said CEX.io communications officer Helga Danova.

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.

CEX.io is a UK based bitcoin exchange.
