According to cryptopotato.com, the largest bank in Belarus, the ASB Belarusbank, has allegedly launched a legal service, which enables customers from the country and Russia to purchase cryptocurrencies.
Users will be able to exchange digital assets for Belarusian and Russian rubles, US dollars, and euros directly with their Visa cards.
According to the Prime Press coverage, the largest bank in Belarus has partnered with a cryptocurrency exchange called White Bird to launch the new service starting from 13th November 2020.
At first, only citizens of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation will be able to interact with cryptocurrencies through the bank. Nevertheless, the entity plans to expand the list of nations in the near future.
It should be noted that the report hasn’t disclosed which cryptocurrency assets will be available for purchase through the bank. However, White Bird has promised that the list will be “extensive,” and the operator aims to include additional features to be combined with the traditional financial sector.
