June 20, 2020

Uphold and Agile Fintech have teamed up to promote a payment solution in Venezuela. For more information, Cointelegraph spoke in Spanish to Robin O’Connell, Uphold’s Chief Revenue Officer.

O’Connell said: “Agile Fintech is a new app that enables Venezuelans to make payments to local businesses and retailers with ease. Uphold has partnered with Agile to manage the flow of transactions and facilitate billing in fiat and cryptocurrencies through our API ‘Uphold Connect’. “.

Then he added: “Currently Ágil Fintech is only located in Venezuela and has strong expertise in this market. But I think if this local project is successful, it would make sense to think about a similar solution in other Latin American countries. “

Regarding the general situation in Latin America, O’Connel said:Latin America is at the forefront of introducing digital money. At Uphold, we are seeing an upward trend in adoption for all types of use cases: transfers, “great economy” payments, and even B2B payments. However, the last mile problem still exists for digital money. How can I spend my money easily? Agile has solved this problem by making it easy for people to make payments and spend their digital money. “

On the other hand, he noted that they have a very open strategy at Uphold that they use to encourage other companies to connect to Uphold through their Uphold Connect API.

“We have a strong platform that partners can use to manage payments for various purposes worldwide. Agile is a great example of this type of association, ”he concluded.
