Huobi Global Joins Hands with Capitual to Upgrade Security for Brazil-based Users

Huobi Global, one of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchanges, jointly announced an account individualization plan for its Brazil-based users with Brazilian payments gateway Capitual. This move aims to upgrade Huobi Global’s security measures and provide more secure and compliant fiat-to-crypto gateway services to Huobi Global’s users in Brazil.

This announcement follows the Brazilian Central Bank’s new regulation in May, requiring local banks and payment intermediaries to update Know Your Customer (KYC) processes for greater security and to prevent money laundering.

Under this regulation, users must have an individual account confirmed with local banks and payment intermediaries to transact in Brazilian Real. It applies to both business and personal accounts.

“This KYC policy upgrade is part of our ongoing efforts to manage risks and security incidents. Compliance and users’ asset security have always been our top priorities, which is the reason we have maintained a track record of zero security incident in the nearly 9 years since our inception. We are determined to work closely with Capitual to provide more secure, professional and compliant services to our users in Brazil,” said Lily Zhang, CFO of Huobi Group.

Capitual has developed a robust technology platform capable of processing a large volume of transactions involving cryptocurrencies simply, quickly and securely. “In addition, we are committed to compliance with legislation. In this way, we offer an environment of security and tranquillity for our business partners and their users to carry out their operations, in accordance with the requirements of the Brazilian regulatory authorities,” says Gustavo Rezende, COO of Capitual.
