A Brazilian financial company operating in the investment banking, asset management and corporate lending markets has announced the launch of a new crypto platform.
BTG Pactual thus became the first Brazilian bank to officially allow its clients to invest in cryptocurrencies through the crypto application Mynt.
According to the available information, trading in two cryptocurrencies will be available for the time being, namely BTC and ETH, but according to Andre Portilho, BTG Pactual’s head of digital assets will later be available for a wide range of crypto assets.
At this first moment, we will have the two main digital assets in the market, but we will include other cryptos for trading over time. We will have a complete platform with blockchain-based assets. said Andre Portilho
Banco BTG Pactual S.A. managed total assets of $72.6 billion last year.
