Crypto exchange Binance rolls out fiat gateway for fifteen different fiat currencies. The facility of fiat deposits in different currencies is made possible with a partnership with crypto and fiat custodian company Etana Custody.
According to an announcement on July 7, the world’s top trading platform is now working with Etana Custody to offer fiat on-ramps across North America, Europe, Asia, and Oceanian markets.
Per the partnership between two giant companies, users of Binance first deposit fiat funds from their bank accounts to Etana and then forward funds to the crypto exchange. The fiats include Australian Dollar (AUD), Swiss Franc (CHF), Euros (EUR), Hong Kong Dollar (HKD), Hungarian Forint (HUF), Norwegian Krone (NOK), Polish złoty (PLN), United Arab Emirates Dirham (AED), Canadian Dollar (CAD), Czech Koruna (CZK), British Pound (GBP), Danish Krone (DKK), Mexican Peso (MXN), New Zealand Dollar (NZD), and Swedish Krona (SEK).
Binance Founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao said:
“We are pleased to introduce this new fiat gateway through Etana Custody. The integration helps make access to digital assets more effortless for people across the European, Asian, North American and Oceanian markets.”
“At Binance, we are committed to furthering global digital assets adoption by launching multiple fiat-to-digital assets gateways. Binance’s fiat gateways covers over 170 countries and regions in the world and we are continuing to add more to make crypto more available across the globe,” he added.
