It supports e-commerce services, international remittances, trading and payments between cryptocurrencies, national currencies, precious metals and yield/credit products. It has also started offering crypto-backed debit cards. The company projects revenue for 2020 to be up 240% from last year, and has already seen Bitcoin trading volume increase 250% with 375% more new customers in the first quarer of 2020 compared to 2019.
During his talk, J.P. will discuss the current financial climate, including his thoughts on Bitcoin adoption and fiat currency debasement.
