- Users will be able to trade BTC, ETH, USDT, EURT and XAUT on the platform
- The mobile version is planned to be released later this year.
Cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex announced on the launch of the Peer-to-Peer platform in three Latin American countries, namely Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela
The platform allows clients to directly trade BTC, ETH, EURT, USDT, as well as the XAUT token with a link to the gold price. Users have the opportunity to choose a payment method and use the national currency as they wish.
Paolo Ardoino, CTO of Bitfinex, stated:
“We are pleased to announce the implementation of Bitfinex P2P in Venezuela, Argentina and Colombia. By providing a reliable and efficient P2P token exchange platform, we offer our clients the opportunity to interact with the market in a convenient way that best suits their needs and requirements. We believe in the power of Bitcoin and expanding access to innovative financial technologies around the world.”
A mobile version of Bitfinex P2P is planned for release later this year, which, along with other features, aims to improve customer experience. This mobile version will allow clients to trade cryptocurrencies on the go.
The launch of Bitfinex P2P in Latin America, specifically Venezuela, Argentina and Colombia, is the latest step in a string of efforts to expand access to digital asset-related financial services in the region. For example, in May 2023, Bitfinex announced its investment in leading Chilean crypto exchange OrionX ahead of its expansion in Peru, Colombia, and Mexico.
