Now as per a new announcement, Banco will expand their crypto at the next level.
In the first phase of the crypto project, Banco will allow around 5,000 clients to use the crypto assets for trade, which are available at Bitso and Buda cryptocurrency exchanges.
These two crypto exchanges are fully regulated and are running their operations under the supervision of Superintendencia Financiera ( Colombian regulatory authority).
In the second phase of the crypto project program, Banco will allow their users to spend the crypto assets with the use of crypto cards related functionality. And also they will allow the option of cash in and cash out facility.
