WhatsApp, the world’s most popular messaging app, recently announced a digital payments service through its service. The function is already available in Brazil, but will probably be extended to other countries in the near future. Users will need a special PIN code or fingerprint to prevent unauthorized operations.
The service will be available using a credit card such as Visa, Mastercard or Cielo, a leader in payment services in Brazil.
A major Turkish real estate company has also announced the implementation of digital payments in the form of Bitcoin. Users can now pay for properties using Bitcoin, but the platform also facilitates payments in other cryptocurrencies like USDT, XRP and others.
This is certainly not the first time that Bitcoin is used in the real estate industry. The idea behind using Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is that it can save a lot of money thanks to low transaction fees and can even prevent fraud.
Paxful, one of the most popular p2p markets, announced a partnership with OKEx, a derivatives exchange. The idea behind the integration is that Paxful users will have access to OKEx’s trading options such as spot, margin and even futures. According to the company, the new integration should help the two companies to extend their services to other countries.
“Through this partnership, we can reach more users in developing regions using Paxful’s existing infrastructure and payment options and give them exposure to the benefits of OKEx’s advanced technology, in addition to the diverse set of products.” – said Jay Hao, CEO of OKEx.
