OKCoin has launched its digital asset exchange platform in Latin America.
Traders in Argentina can now deposit Argentine peso (ARS) in exchange for cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Ripple, Cardano, Stellar, Zcash and 0x, with more being added in the near future. Other Latin American fiat currencies will be announced in the coming months.
OKCoin plans to open an office in Buenos Aires and build up a team to support its business throughout Latin America.
“We are committed to opening up new markets for digital currency consumers throughout the world, and we are very excited to bring our safe, secure and licenced trading platform to consumers in Argentina,” says Tim Byun, CEO at OKCoin USA.
“This is just the beginning of our Latin American expansion, as we’re aiming to grow throughout the region by bringing institutional and retail traders there an array of trusted trading options so they can buy and sell with confidence.”
OKCoin expanded to offer fiat trading in the US earlier this year and recently added crypto-to-crypto trading for 20 states.
