Nubank adds two new cryptocurrencies to the Nubank Cripto experience
With more than 2 million users who have at least once bought a cryptocurrency through the Nubank app, customers now also have the Polygon and Uniswap digital currencies as options, along with Bitcoin and Ethereum
Dec 20 , 2022
São Paulo, December 20, 2022 – In yet another step towards democratizing access to the world of cryptocurrencies in Latin America, Nubank announces today two more digital currencies as part of the Nubank Cripto experience, currently available to more than 67 million of customers in Brazil. Launched in May with Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) as options, the platform now also has Polygon (MATIC) and Uniswap (UNI) on the shelf.
Since its launch, Nubank Cripto has registered around 2 million users who have bought cryptocurrency through the Nubank app at least once. To make the access easier for people interested in starting their journey in the crypto world, Nubank developed the experience based on attributes such as simplicity, security and accessibility. It is possible to purchase fractions of the available digital currencies from BRL 1.00 (one real), which are guarded by Paxos, a leading provider of blockchain infrastructure that guarantees the global protection of customer assets by the main regulators of digital assets.
In addition to the possibility of buying cryptocurrencies, the Nubank Crypto section in the Nubank app also contains Crypto School, which brings a series of educational content about the world of digital currencies. There, the customer has access to articles that explain volatility, crypto use cases, and even explanations of some of the main cryptocurrencies, including the newly available Polygon and Uniswap.
While Polygon combines speed (it allows more than 65,500 transactions per block), which means fewer queues and a consequent reduction in fees, Uniswap stands out for being one of the first and most important decentralized exchanges (DEX) in the world. That is, Uniswap is like a digital platform through which it is possible to sell and buy digital assets, such as tokens, NFTs, and cryptocurrencies themselves. Both Polygon and Uniswap run on the Ethereum network.
