According to sources, on June 24, 2022, the cryptocurrency exchange Binance declared Latam Gateway as its new payment service provider in Brazil.
Binance Brazil chooses Latam Gateway
In a significant restructuring of its Brazilian operations, the cryptocurrency exchange Binance has replaced Capitual, its prior fiat payment service provider, with Latam Gateway, a Brazilian payments company founded in 2019.
The exchange reaffirmed that it chose to replace its payment partner in Brazil as part of its ongoing mission to offer its users in the area the finest services while remaining legally and ethically responsible, transparent, and accountable.
Before June 17, Binance used Capitual to process deposits and withdrawals to users’ Pix accounts. However, according to local news outlets, the exchange suspended Pix payments due to a policy by the apex bank that requires Pix providers to implement new know-your-customer (KYC) measures.
Additionally, Binance has disclosed that Latam Gateway would serve as its payment partner while the company’s efforts to purchase Brazilian brokerage firm Simpaul are underway.
While the Latam Gateway integration is in progress, Binance has advised its users to use the peer-to-peer functionality of the exchange for deposits and withdrawals as well as for direct cryptocurrency purchases of Pix and bank transfers, which are available through a different source.
According to the exchange, consumers can withdraw using the convenient “sell to card” option for Visa cards.
