Dash Brazil has partnered with ATAR Payment Processor
and Stratum exchange
to enable Dash users to make purchases at over 2.5 million merchants in Brazil. Since its inception , ATAR has worked to develop a mobile money wallet along with a hardware NFC (near-field communication) bracelet that enables consumers to make contactless payments anywhere Mastercard is accepted, which is currently at 85% of the machines (2.5 million merchants) in Brazil.
Stratum is an online cryptocurrency exchange that enables consumers to buy, sell, and withdrawal cryptocurrency, as well as also top up their cell phones, pay utility bills in Brazil, and top up ATAR band bracelets , offering a wide range of possibilities for the investors and daily consumers. In the past , Dash has already been involved in experiments previous to ATAR to leverage NFC payments. A previous project was able to get 25% of individuals at an Estonian music festival with 4,000 total attendees to spend
over €19,000 EUR in Dash via NFC bracelets over four days. The Dash wallet has also been upgraded to support
Apple Watch features , erasing the technical barriers related to devices used.
A strong presence in Brazilian Crypto Ecosystem
Dash has also made inroads into Brazilian markets, recently added
to Brazilian payment and service gateway Kamoney, which also enables Brazilians to pay utility bills. In 2019, Dash currency has been added to numerous brazilian exchanges including PagCripto
, and XDEX
, significantly increasing the presence of Dash in the country. The partnership of Dash Brazil with Stratum exchange and the user-friendly ATAR payment processor helps lower this adoption barrier by making payments easier and more accessible at more merchants, providing a valuable stepping stone to accepting Dash payments directly without converting into fiat currency.
