OKCoin Launches in Latin America with Fiat-to-Crypto Trading for the Argentine Peso
OKCoin, one of the world’s leading digital asset exchanges offering its services over 110 countries, announced today the launch of its licensed exchange platform in Latin America by offering fiat-to-crypto trading between the Argentine peso and several major cryptocurrencies.
Starting today, traders in Argentina can 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 soon. Other Latin American fiat currencies will be added 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.
“OKCoin is committed to opening up new markets for digital currency consumers throughout the world, and we are very excited to bring our safe, secure and licensed trading platform to consumers in Argentina,” said 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 already supports fiat trading for US dollars from users throughout the world. By adding the Argentine peso to its growing stable of fiat-based trading options, OKCoin signifies its commitment to bringing cryptocurrency trading to Latin American markets. The company plans to expand throughout Latin America and the rest of the world by supporting more local fiat currencies in the near future.
Founded in 2013, OKCoin is a licensed exchange that enables consumers to buy and sell digital assets in a regulated, secure and compliant environment. The company expanded to offer fiat trading in the US earlier this year and recently added crypto-to-crypto trading for 20 United States.
Argentinian consumers can get started with fiat trading by registering for an OKCoin account at www.okcoin.com and completing the individual or corporate verification form.
Today’s announcement comes as OKCoin prepares to participate in this week’s C20 Conference, which is billed as the world’s most important Spanish-language crypto conference, taking place November 16 – 17 in Buenos Aires.
