Our collaboration with AstroPay underscores our goal to make the purchase and trading of digital assets a secure, convenient and enjoyable experience for everyone.”

Speaking on the deal, AstroPay chief commercial officer Sara Rita said, “AstroPay is well known for providing payment services for companies looking to target the diverse Latin American market. Huobi Global users will be able to purchase and sell their crypto assets in local currencies, which ultimately lead to more trading, higher volume, and greater engagement within the sector.”
