AstroPay, a Latin American-based online payment service, announced it has integrated cryptocurrency with a new buy and sell option on its app and web app. The AstroPay wallet supports Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and Cardano, and can be acquired in local currencies available in each country or USD.
Further, the service allows users to trade supported cryptocurrencies with no purchase, trading, transfer, or maintenance fees. With the addition, AstroPay aims to expand its business to a wider range of users. The option is now available in selected emerging markets with plans to roll it out further.
“With this offering, we want to serve younger users who are more inclined to trade cryptocurrencies as they are digital natives. AstroPay has been operating with cryptocurrencies for over two years and we decided that now is the right time to offer our users the option to trade these digital assets.”
– Mikael Lijtenstein, Astropay CEO
