    The Burden of Bureaucracy in LatAm

The Latin American market presents a fertile ground for crypto-friendly companies, characterized by its rapidly growing digital economy. According to a Chainalysis report, three countries in LatAm rank in the top 20 of the Global Crypto Adoption Index: Brazil (9th), Argentina (15th), and Mexico (16th).

This region, with its large unbanked population and fluctuating local currencies, shows a strong potential for crypto adoption, offering a unique opportunity for exchanges like Bybit. However, penetrating this market comes with its own set of challenges.

Bybit, a leading player in the global crypto exchange sector, faced the intricate task of expanding into Latin America and finding a reliable system for on- and off-ramp operations — a crucial aspect for ensuring seamless transactions for users converting between fiat and cryptocurrencies.

In Brazil, the strategy was to find a good on- and off-ramp partner, and this is where Transfero came along having a good reputation in the market doing on and off ramp for other international companies."

    Removing the Borders to Brazil

To overcome these hurdles, Bybit collaborated with Transfero BaaSiC, a strategic move that proved to be pivotal.

Bybit began to use Baasic, a product that offers a single API integration to explore various services from the banking, crypto, and financial systems. In this way, the company entered the Brazilian market without much difficulty, delivering the same differentiators that established the exchange as one of the world's leading platforms.

Another differentiator for Bybit to establish itself in the Brazilian market was the use of BRZ, the world's largest non-dollar stablecoin. Pegged to the Brazilian real, this asset became the gateway for Brazilian users who wanted to take advantage of all the exchange's offerings and services by simply making direct deposits with their local currency.

On-ramp & Off-ramp

This solution facilitates the automated purchase of crypto assets using fiat currencies and the conversion of crypto assets into fiat currencies.

Pay-in & Pay-out

Pay-in & Pay-out are solutions for international companies to make or receive payments from their clients or third parties in Brazil in real via Pix or in crypto assets.

The BRZ, the largest non-dollar stablecoin, is pegged to the Brazilian real and allows remittances to be faster and cheaper, as well as enabling companies to offer payments in BRL without investing in local infrastructure.

The KYC (Know Your Client) solution allows partners to verify the identity of their clients, ensuring compliance with local regulations and fulfilling their due diligence and client screening obligations.




    Growth and Expansion in LatAm

A key indicator of this success is the significant growth, quarter to quarter, of Brazilian users adopting Bybit as their primary cryptocurrency exchange platform. This uptick in user adoption underscores the relevance and appeal of Bybit's services in the Brazilian market, resonating with the needs and preferences of local crypto enthusiasts.

Moreover, a staggering 200% growth in trade volume in Brazil highlights the efficacy of the partnership. This impressive growth is not just a measure of increased transactional activity but also a reflection of heightened trust and confidence in Bybit’s platform among Brazilian users.

It's definitely a blueprint for companies aiming to expand into new and diverse markets.


of growth in trade volume in Brazil.

Once BRZ was listed, we observed a trend of growth quarter to quarter. Over the past 2 years, I would say we've seen around a 200% growth in Brazil, with Brazilians conducting their trades locally."
