In the past four months, Binance has launched two fiat-to-crypto exchanges, with supporting the trading of Euros and British Pounds with crypto, and Binance Uganda supporting Ugandan Shillings. With the new Simplex partnership, Binance is further expanding to global markets.

“The crypto industry is still in its early stages and most of the world’s money is still in fiat. Building fiat gateways is what we need now to grow the ecosystem, increase adoption and introduce crypto to more users,” said Mr Zhao. M
