Leading crypto exchange OKX has announced a new crypto exchange and Web3 wallet launch in Brazil.

OKX fosters crypto adoption in Brazil

Despite the unfavourable environment for crypto in many countries across the world, the crypto infrastructure is still being built out at speed. Crypto exchange OKX is moving into the vast territory of Brazil with a new crypto exchange together with a Web3 wallet.

According to an article on the launch on the OKX website, the new exchange will give Brazilian users the opportunity to on-ramp their currency in order to buy crypto in a secure environment. 

Security is main concern for Brazilians

In fact, according to a recent study commissioned by OKX Brazil, security is the main concern for those looking to invest in cryptocurrencies, as 92% of respondents to the study stated that there was a “need for clear and transparent information about the security of their investments.”

The new OKX wallet launch is also big on security, and is said by OKX to be the first to incorporate both Multi-Party Computation (MPC) and Account Abstraction (AA) technology.

The wallet will enable users to access DeFi, trade NFTs, and utilise dApps among other features.
