Binance, the largest exchange by traded volume, has launched its third fiat-to-crypto exchange; this time in Singapore following exchanges in Uganda and Jersey. The fiat-to-crypto exchange will initially only support purchases of bitcoin, which is different from its existing fiat-to-crypto exchanges in Uganda and Jersey - both of which also support ether. Binance spokesperson said that "more pairs [may be] added as regulations allow."
Binance partnered up with a payment processing fintech Xfers to launch the exchange in Singapore—the same company that Coinbase worked with to launch their own operation in Singapore. Coinbase dropped the partnership when it shut down its operation in Singapore. In October, Binance accepted a strategic investment from Vertex Ventures to build the exchange in Singapore and explore other fiat-to-crypto exchanges in Southeast Asia.
