Abstract：Mercado Bitcoin, a leading Brazilian crypto exchange, obtains payment provider license, allowing it to launch MB Pay and offer digital banking services, including fixed-income investments and a crypto-to-fiat debit card, meeting the country's growing crypto demands. Other exchanges like Binance and Coinbase are also expanding in Brazil.
Mercado Bitcoin, one of Brazil's leading cryptocurrency exchanges, has received a payment provider license from the country's central bank. This license will allow the exchange to introduce its fintech solution, MB Pay, and offer digital banking services to its users. The approval from the Central Bank is seen as a significant milestone for Mercado Bitcoin and its parent company, 2TM.
Roberto Dagnoni, the CEO of 2TM, expressed his satisfaction with the approval, stating that it would enable the company to expand its business and enhance customer service. With MB Pay, Brazilian users will have access to various digital banking services that utilize crypto assets held on the exchange. These services will include digital fixed-income investments, staking, and other financial transactions. Furthermore, the exchange intends to provide a debit card that would enable customers to transfer their cryptocurrencies into standard fiat currency.
Mercado Bitcoin had expected to launch its financial solution in 2021, but the regulatory certification procedure caused delays. However, with the payment provider license in hand, the exchange can now proceed with its expansion plans. This news comes on the heels of Mercado Bitcoin being ordered to return over 2,182 Bitcoins to a group of investors. The investors alleged that a co-founder and former executive had fraudulently withheld funds in a fabricated hack back in 2013.
Brazil's growing demand for digital solutions and its large population of nearly 214 million has attracted numerous crypto firms to the country. Binance, one of the world's largest cryptocurrency exchanges, has identified Brazil as one of its key markets. Its local partner, Latam Gateway, was recently granted a payment provider license in Brazil as well. Other crypto exchanges, such as Crypto.com and Bitso, have also obtained payment provider licenses in the country.
Coinbase, a prominent American cryptocurrency exchange, is also expanding its operations in Brazil. Since March, Coinbase has collaborated with local payment providers to enable crypto purchases and facilitate deposits and withdrawals in the local currency. This move demonstrates Coinbase's commitment to serving the Brazilian market and capitalizing on the country's growing interest in cryptocurrencies.
With Mercado Bitcoin's new payment provider license and the upcoming launch of MB Pay, Brazilian users will have greater access to digital banking services and the ability to manage their crypto assets more conveniently. The central bank of Brazil's clearance demonstrates the growing acknowledgment and acceptance of cryptocurrencies in the country's financial environment. As the crypto business evolves, it is expected that additional financial institutions and fintech firms will seek similar licenses to meet the demands of Bitcoin customers.
