The Malta-based exchange Binance has added a flurry of new fiat funding options since New Year, including support for Australian dollars (AUD) and Thai baht.
January 8, 2020, | AtoZ Markets – The 7th of January was a good day for Binance, it seems. The company managed to gain fiat on-ramps to two more countries: Thailand and Australia. As is the case with these things, one of the world’s biggest crypto exchanges made collaboration deals with local crypto service providers to enable this.
AUD and THB added as fiat on-ramps
For Thailand’s on-ramp, Binance has made use of one of the oldest crypto exchanges within the country, Satang Corporation. To add Australia to the company’s ecosystem, Binance made a collaboration with Banxa, a fiat on-ramp solution that serves globally. For now, though, it will only provide an on-ramp for the Australian Dollar (AUD), with Satang providing the Thailand Baht (THB) on-ramp for the Binance ecosystem.
The mandatory kind words
A spokesman from both companies addressed the public in regards to the new collaboration with Binance. He gave outright kind words.
Poramin Insom, the CEO and Co-Founder of Satang, as well as the creator of Zcoin, expressed the pride his company feels with the Binance collaboration. With it, Insom believes that it could bring “digital assets to the masses in Thailand” as well as pushing its digital economy forward. Insom remarks that it serves as a statement of the country’s crypto ecosystem’s development.
Holger Arians are the CEO of Banxa and shared similar kind words about the collaboration. He explained that Binance would be capable of relying on Banxa to take care of all the compliance, chargeback, and regulation issues that stem from global payment options, with Binance only enjoying the benefits thereof. Furthermore, Arians expresses his company’s delight in welcoming Binance to its growing ecosystem. Arians also expressed excitement when it comes to working with the Binance team.
Binance spreads across the world
Within the press release was something quite interesting: A claim that 74% of Thailand’s population has access to the Internet. It serves as one of the highest ratios in the world.
After this new pair of on-ramps to add to Binance’s list, the crypto exchange boasts a staggering 22 fiat on-ramps its clients are capable of using for direct fiat-to-crypto purchases.
Changpeng Zhao, or nicknamed CZ, has also come to comment about the developments in his exchange. He explained that cryptocurrencies and fiats will have to learn to co-exist, as both will still be here for a long time to come. He stated that 99.9% of the world’s monetary supply is still based on fiat. With that, Zhao believes that building bridges between them is paramount to enable the proper crypto flow.
