“We’ve noticed a growing interest in cryptocurrencies like Solana and Polygon among our clients – by partnering with BVNK we can effectively respond to their needs”.
In a strategic move to cater to the growing demand for digital currency payments, Deriv, a leading global online brokerage specializing in trading and derivatives, has expanded its partnership with BVNK, the globally regulated payments platform that integrates traditional payment systems with blockchain technology.
This expansion allows Deriv to offer Solana payments to its vast customer base of 2.5 million globally, providing them with the flexibility to make deposits using digital assets. As the cryptocurrency market continues to surge, with an estimated 4 million cryptocurrency owners worldwide, the market cap of Solana (SOL) has experienced an impressive 700% growth in the last 12 months, reaching over $40 billion.
This milestone in Deriv’s payment strategy, positioning the brokerage to swiftly address the increasing demand for digital currencies from its diverse global clientele. Deriv’s decision to venture into the realm of digital currencies was prompted by customer requests and the opportunity to tap into new markets.
