Bitfinex has launched a peer-to-peer exchange servicing clients in Argentina, Venezuela and Colombia, the company said in a statement.
Users can buy and sell bitcoin, ether, USDT, EURT and Tether Gold.
“By offering a reliable and efficient platform for P2P token trading, we are empowering our customers to engage with the marketplace in a way that affords maximum convenience based on their needs and preferences," Bitfinex CTO Paolo Ardoino said in the statement.
The move could help fill a hole left by the closures of P2P exchanges including LocalBitcoin in February. Paxful continues to operate in Colombia and Argentina, after a pause in service earlier in the year.
