Mexico's leading cryptocurrency exchange Bitso has attracted funding from industry-famous investors to expand its operations in Latin America. The amount of investment is not disclosed, reports The Block .

The financing round was led by the fintech company Ripple, also the largest US cryptocurrency company Coinbase took part in it. In addition, the participants in the round were Digital Currency Group and Pantera Capital, who had previously invested in the exchange.

Bitso has been operating in Mexico since 2014 and claims to serve 750,000 users in the country. The exchange intends to use the raised funds for business expansion primarily in such large countries as Argentina and Brazil.

Among other economic difficulties, a number of Latin American states are facing currency crises. In Argentina, the government, for example, imposed restrictions on the purchase of foreign currency, trying to stop the fall of the peso. Brazil's economy has fallen into recession due to high unemployment, declining investment and a global recession.

Against this background, cryptocurrency activity is growing in the region. In Argentina, weekly volumes of bitcoin transactions on the p2p platform LocalBitcoins jumped to almost $ 196 thousand. In Brazil, this figure reached $ 307 thousand.
