OKX Makes Inroads In Argentina With Exchange and Wallet Launch

Cryptocurrency exchange OKX has registered a new expansion with the introduction of OKX Argentina to offer a new crypto wallet and digital asset platform.

OKX Argentina Operations Kicks Off

In a recent announcement, the global Web3.0 technology and brokerage outfit announced the debut of its Web3.0 wallet in Argentina. Amongst its counterparts, the Seychelles-headquartered crypto exchange prides itself as a hub for some crypto services including trading, staking, and deep liquidity across hundreds of crypto assets. 

It also claims to be one of the few exchanges with robust security protections. Unlike many other digital asset service providers, the firm is focused on expanding its services to other regions to increase its user base. With the latest launch of OKX Argentina, the country’s residents now get to leverage the non-custodial Web3.0 wallet of the crypto exchange.

This move from the trading platform comes in the wake of the probe into its operations in South Korea.

The Wallet will give OKX users access to a portal where their Decentralized Finance (DeFi) operations can be managed. They could also trade Non-fungible tokens (NFTs), use DApps, and many other offerings. Another benefit of the launch of OKX Argentina is the access to OKX P2P.

The exchange’s P2P platform will be made available for customers to make direct purchases of cryptocurrencies from verified local sources. To make it easier for residents of Argentina to navigate the platform and access crypto, OKX P2P will offer dedicated Spanish-language support. There is also a compilation of popular local payment alternatives within P2P.

OKX President Hong Fang noted that the new outfit offers a user-centric approach that is aimed at accelerating adoption by meeting local needs first. Fang also acknowledged the expansion as a representation of a crucial launch pad for OKX’s regional growth strategy.

Expansion into Other Regions

The move to Argentina is only one out of the several expansions that the leading crypto firm has made thus far this year. 

In just two weeks into the new year, OKX secured a Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP) license from the Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA) in Dubai. Once the license becomes operational, OKX will offer spot and fiat trading, AED deposits and withdrawals, and spot trading pairs to both retail and institutional investors. 

OKX has been keen on its expansion for a while now and has since invested effort and resources into its achievement. The recently launched Funding Fee Collection method is one of those advancements put in place to accommodate a series of expansions in the OKX ecosystem at this time.
