This development is coming on the back of Brazil’s big banks’ decision to freeze accounts belonging to crypto firms and other digital assets related trading accounts. Caixa Economica, which is owned by the government of the South American country, froze accounts but decided to release them after three days. Even though the reason why the move happened is still unknown, reports say that the accounts have now been suspended. Considering the fact that Caixa Economica is government-owned, the new development is going to affect every crypto adoption strategy and hurt the adoption of crypto around the region.
