In Colombia, the entity managed by the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit, the Financial Superintendence of Colombia (Superfinanciera) has revealed the authorization of alliances between Colombian banks and digital currency exchanges. So far, Colombia’s financial department has approved nine partnerships between exchanges and national banks in order to make cryptocurrency operations more accessible to citizens.

Colombia’s Financial Superintendent Wants to Spread Crypto Accessibility

The Republic of Colombia in South America has been friendly toward crypto assets like bitcoin (BTC) and other digital currencies over the years. More recently, during the first week of January 2021, the Superintendence of Corporations in Colombia explained in an official circular that local firms can leverage capital to purchase bitcoin.

Now the Financial Superintendence of Colombia (Superfinanciera) or FSC has revealed a trial between regulated financial institutions in the country and digital currency exchanges.

The organization tied to Colombia’s Ministry of Finance and Public Credit shared a tweet on January 29, 2021, that informed the public about the alliance between a number of national banks and a select group of crypto exchanges. The mission is to enable more cryptocurrency operations to make the crypto economy in Colombia more accessible.

The initiative started in 2020, and a number of exchanges had to get approval from the FSC in order to participate. To date, the financial watchdog approved nine digital currency exchanges so far, and the platforms Movii and Panda Exchange were included.

“The Evaluation and Monitoring Committee of the government pilot that will enable cash-in and cash-out operations in financial products of deposit on behalf of crypto asset exchange platforms selected nine out of fourteen initiatives that applied for tests,†the FSC explained. Essentially, the Colombian government’s crypto sandbox was created to enhance new technologies and financial products.

The Colombian Superintendence further said:
