The Brazilian financial services provider XP hopes to open its crypto trading platform to clients by mid-August. At first they will offer Bitcoin and Ether with plans to grow it by this year’s end, said the organization’s head of monetary director of financial products items.
Lucas Rabechini stated in an interview that clients with an “adequate investment profile for such operations” will be permitted into the Xtage platform, presently open only for employees, beginning next month.
XP at present has 3.6 million clients, however said crypto trading will agree with eligibility rules, for example, how much gambling risk every client is willing to take.
Rabechini likewise said that “by the end of December and the beginning of next year” there will be 10 extra crypto-assets accessible for trading.
Digital currencies have been in the eye of the storm as of late crypto giants such as Celsius and Voyager have fallen, and bitcoin has lost half of its worth up until this year.
“You can say ‘the volume has been weak, there will be few orders,’ but we see this market systematically growing over time, and our long-term view is not just focused on price, but also technology,” Rabechini said, taking note of that XP fostered a “super fast” order execution technology close by Nasdaq.
Large financial players in Brazil, such as Nubank , BTG Pactual and Itau Unibanco will pose a threat to XP as they recently revealed plans to provide clients with crypto-related services.
Rabechini further stated, “There are competitors doing their homework, some pretty competent ones, but we are competent as well.”
