Bitso, the biggest crypto exchange in Latin America, has raised $62 million dollars in a series B funding round.

It has been reported that Bitso plans to use the funding to consolidate its expansion in the region, including a focus on Brazil’s emerging market.

Nigel Morris, the co-founder of QED and Nicolas Szekasy, the Managing Director of Kaszek, will also join Bitso’s board of directors following the round.

Morris stated:

“QED has long kept the crypto market and Bitso in its crosshairs. It has been a pleasure to see the company grow and expand in Latin America. We are excited that Bitso is our first investment in our portfolio.”

Likewise, Daniel Vogel, the CEO of Bitso, said:

“Our mission is to provide universal access to cryptocurrencies in a simple, transparent and secure way, and to make them useful in people’s lives. Working hand in hand with the brilliant teams at QED and Kaszek Ventures will help us advance this mission. This round will finance our global strategy to continue offering the Bitso platform in other Latin American countries, with a particular focus on Brazil.”
