Bitex Partners With Bantotal For More Cross-Border Payments in Latin America

Bitcoin (BTC) exchange Bitex has partnered with Uruguay-based financial software company Bantotal in order to expand it cross-border payments system on the Bitcoin blockchain to Latin America.

CoinDesk announced the companies’ new partnership in a report on Aug. 13. According to the report, the upshot of this partnership is that Bantotal’s clients will have access to Bitex’s exchange services via a marketplace that hosts traditional financial services in its BDevelopers program.

Per the report, Bitex will act as a middleman service for cross-border payments. The exchange’s role is to convert from fiat currency to BTC, and then back to fiat again in order to facilitate these cross-border transactions.

Manuel Beaudroit, the chief marketer at Bitex, explained:

“If I want to do a payment from Argentina to Chile, I don’t need to buy dollars with the Argentinian pesos then transfer the dollars to the U.S. then move the dollars to Chile and exchange them into Chilean pesos [...] I can just send a payment from Argentina to Chile directly.”

Bitcoin Argentina VP Leo Elduayen reportedly thinks that this partnership will majorly boost Bitex participation from within Latin America. According to the report, Bantotal provides services to over 60 financial institutions ranging across 14 countries, and a spokesperson estimated that 20 million people use the company’s money management services.

As previously reported by Cointelegraph, Bitex similarly partnered with an Argentina-based bank — Argentinian Banco Masventas (BMV) — back in May. As stated in the report, Bitex partnered with BMV in order to allow its clients to conduct cross-border payments.

José Humberto Dakak, a principal shareholder at BMV, apparently commented that the bank hopes to improve its digital and smartphone-based services with the partnership. He further remarked:

“One of the initiatives is to use Bitex as a strategic partner to provide our overseas customers with payment and collection services at the Bitex Exchange.”
