Colombia has one of the highest adoptions of Bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrencies in Latin America. For this reason, it is logical for exchanges like Binance to decide to expand their product offerings in the South American country, in this case the purchase of Crypto assets using prepaid cards at more than 90 million businesses worldwide.
According to CriptoNoticias, Bitcoin has emerged as an alternative for Colombians looking to protect themselves from the devaluation of their national currency and inflation, which has risen suddenly since last year.
According to an article published on the Binance website, Colombia has become the third country in Latin America to have prepaid cards, after Argentina and Brazil. The purpose of the exchange launched this time is to promote the adoption of cryptocurrencies in the region and facilitate the integration of traditional and decentralized finance.
As one of the world leaders in crypto adoption, Colombia is a very important market for Binance. We believe that offering the Binance Card will encourage wider adoption of cryptocurrencies among Colombians, contributing to the development of the blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem in the country, while also bringing cryptocurrencies closer to the daily lives of millions of people. An important step has been made.
