AstroPay authorities announced the launch of its cryptocurrency offering, giving those who want to explore the world of digital assets the option to buy and sell cryptocurrencies on its app and webapp.
“The offering is cost-effective, as users can trade cryptocurrencies without having to pay purchase, trading, transfer or maintenance fees,” they stressed from the company.
Mikael Lijtenstein, CEO of Astropay, explained, “We are delighted to launch our cryptocurrency offering, which puts us at the forefront of international payment solutions. With this offering we want to cater to younger users, who are more inclined to trade cryptocurrencies, as they are digital natives.”
“AstroPay has been trading cryptocurrencies for more than two years, and we have decided that the time is right to offer our users the option to trade these digital assets,” he added.
The digital wallet will support Bitcoins, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoins and Cardano, which can be purchased in local currency or US dollars. The process is simple, and can be done by users in the app or on the webapp.
The user has to choose the trade option, and from there follow a few simple steps to purchase cryptocurrencies through a wide range of local payment methods available in each country. Lijtenstein added: “The launch is proof of the company’s commitment to continue supporting merchants and users by adopting the latest technological innovations. The size of the cryptocurrency market has expanded exponentially since the launch of Bitcoin a few years ago, and we believe the sector is poised for further exponential growth, especially driven by the new Web 3.0.”
In this regard, Astropay is the first digital wallet in Latin America to offer Cardano blockchain tokens (ADA). This cutting-edge offering maintains the spirit of continuing to innovate in the region. With the cryptocurrency offering, AstroPay further expands its business to reach a larger number of users. The option is currently available in some emerging markets, and there are plans to expand globally in the short term.
