Brazil’s biggest brokerage is launching a crypto exchange
The parent company of Brazil’s largest independent broker is setting up a cryptocurrency exchange. Grupo XP, which owns brokerage firm XP Investimentos, plans to launch the platform in the “coming months,” adding it will support trading in Bitcoin.
Speaking at an event in Sao Paulo, the firm’s executive officer, Guilherme Benchimol, said: “We felt obligated to start advancing in this market.” Benchimol was quoted as saying that the firm made the decision to launch the exchange – dubbed XDEX – because 3 million or so Brazilians already own some Bitcoin, while far fewer, around 600,000, have holdings in stocks.
