This partnership makes it possible to expand the use of and access to the ecosystem of digital assets with national coverage and with the seal of security and reliability of Banco do Brasil,” said Lucas Schoch, the founder and CEO of Bitfy.
According to BB, at the time of payment, cryptocurrencies will be instantly converted to Brazilian reals.
