Statements from the Executives
Founder and CEO of Nubank, David Velez commented on the state of cryptocurrency in Latin America, saying that there is no question that the popularity of cryptocurrencies is experiencing massive growth in the region, as we have been observing for quite some time and think that this will bring an evolution of the market in the space.
David also mentioned that user trading experience is still very lacking because new users are often worried about engaging with cryptocurrencies due to their low knowledge about the space. Users either loss confidence or are overwhelmed by the complexity that cryptocurrency trading can carry.
To power the cryptocurrency services, Nubank will be utilizing the services provided by cryptocurrency firm, Paxos, which is assigned as the official custody holder and broker. CEO of Paxos Charles Cascarilla commented on the partnership, stating that Nubank providing cryptocurrency services is not only an excellent strategic move, but will also help to boost mainstream cryptocurrency adoption rates in the Latin American region.
The firm powering Nubank itself, Nu Holdings also mentioned that they have managed to buy some Bitcoin worth about 1% of the company’s main official budget. Additionally, Nu Holdings stated that this purchase assists in securing the company’s belief regarding the existing and upcoming potential of Bitcoin, according to the region of Latin America.
