Banxa has served crypto companies since 2014 and is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange.
Bancor, the crypto liquidity giant, invented automated-market makers (AMMs) on the blockchain in 2017, building its decentralized exchange into one of the leading and most-used DeFi projects. Customers can trade tokens and earn interest by placing them on Bancor’s decentralized exchange.
“As the market continues its record-breaking bull run, we are proud to have our technology integrated with a project like Bancor,” says Holger Arians, CEO of Banxa. “Bancor Network provides a smooth, user-friendly interface for non-custodial trading of thousands of cryptocurrency pairs, and this integration enables easier on-boarding for users who wish to transact from fiat currencies into their favorite tokens.”
