The world of digital payments is about to witness a significant shift in Brazil as Binance, the world’s leading blockchain and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider, rolls out Binance Pay in the country. This move aims to revolutionize the payment landscape by offering local merchants a new and efficient alternative, potentially attracting a broader customer base, enhancing transaction speeds, and reducing costs.
BINANCE PAY: A GAME-CHANGER IN CRYPTO PAYMENTS
Binance Pay is a groundbreaking contactless, borderless, and secure cryptocurrency payment option designed to support over 70 cryptocurrencies, including the heavyweights like Bitcoin (BTC), Binance Coin (BNB), Ether (ETH), and USDT.
What sets it apart is its fee-free model for users. At the same time, merchants and service providers can leverage this innovative solution to accept payments that seamlessly transfer funds from one wallet to another in seconds.
Importantly, Brazilian merchants have the flexibility to receive payments in Brazilian Real or in cryptocurrency, directly into their wallets.
Guilherme Nazar, the General Manager for Binance in Brazil, expressed his optimism, saying, “Payment is one of the most popular use cases of crypto, which has seen a continuous increase in adoption.
Companies and merchants can now benefit from high processing speeds, low costs, and security provided by Binance Pay. We expect this launch to be especially relevant for businesses in Brazil, as the country registers one of the highest crypto adoption increase rates.
By accepting crypto as a payment method, they’ll increase the row of potential new consumers.”
