Two Argentinean Banks Allowed Customers to Buy Crypto
One of the largest banks in Argentina, Banco Galicia, has opened the possibility for customers to purchase Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP and USDC stablecoins.
The bank offered this service due to the increase in demand for cryptocurrencies, however, “storage of cryptocurrencies” is not included in the bank’s services.
Lirium infrastructure provider is responsible for custodial services.
Another Argentine bank, Brubank, also announced the launch of a cryptocurrency service. Its users have access to Bitcoin, Ethereum, USDC and DAI. The company noted that the feature will be “gradually” turned on for all customers.
