Binance says it is changing Brazil payments partner for better customer solution

Quick Take

  • Binance is in the process of acquiring local brokerage company Sim;paul, which is already authorized by the central bank and the SEC.
  • Binance reportedly said on the platform that deposits via Pix were experiencing instability because of a policy change made by the central bank, without elaborating.

Binance will switch from its current payments partner in Brazil to provide a better solution for customers, it said in a blog post on Friday.

It will replace Capitual with a local payment provider to be announced soon, make the transition in coming weeks and take steps to ensure users are not adversely affected.

For deposits and withdrawals, users can transact via Binance's P2P system, and for direct purchase of cryptocurrencies, Pix and bank transfers are available through an alternative provider, it said. For withdrawals, there is also a “sell to card” option available for Visa, and if in doubt, users can access Binance support or chat.
