Nano aims to be accessible for everyone. Therefore, we’re happy to announce that ChangeNow.io just released 10 new local currency/XNO pairs. That’s another 180M people with credit cards in ten countries can easily access nano. What does this mean in practice?
ChangeNOW.io adding the fiat pairs: VND, MYR, THB, PHP, TRY, BRL, ARS, CLP, MXN, PEN builds bridges to the nano ecosystem for people living in Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Turkey, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Peru.
