„This means access to the stock market for the first time for much of Latin America. The platform can convert anything into anything else, no one can so far pass an Apple share to a Bitcoin Trader share directly, it is usually passed through the dollar or Bitcoin and sold in pesos and then to the dollar for the share. We have a quite differentiated and sophisticated platform that allows us to do direct conversions. This avoids double friction between the two,“ Thieriot added.
