Bitfinex adds Portuguese language to cover population of 258 million

Bitfinex supports seven languages, including English, Russian, Spanish, traditional and simplified Chinese, Turkish, and now Portuguese as it further illustrates its ongoing commitment to localizing its platform. 

Bitfinex has made the Portuguese language available on its digital token trading platform as it grows its base of Portuguese speaking customers and aims to provide greater accessibility to this public.

Bitfinex offers access to “highly liquid” digital asset trading with margin funding.

The cryptocurrency exchange has added a Portuguese version of its educational content to offer the same level of opportunity among Bitfinex clients to better understand digital tokens and blockchain.

The trading platform is now also available for Portuguese-speaking customers who prefer to trade in their native language. The Bitfinex customer support team has now also expanded to include a Portuguese service.

Claudia Lagorio, Chief Operating Officer at Bitfinex, said: “We’re delighted to launch a Portuguese language version of our service which will enhance the user experience for the millions of native Portuguese speakers across the globe. With over 250 million people speaking Portuguese around the world, it is not surprising that we’re seeing a growing number of customers from the Portuguese speaking world on our platform. We feel confident that Portuguese speakers will appreciate using our state-of-the-art trading tools in their native language.”

Launching the Portuguese language service is expected to be widely welcomed by the 258 million Portuguese speakers across the globe, with Brazil accounting for the majority of this population. The country is the fifth in the world in terms of number of cryptocurrency owners, according to tripleA, a specialist blockchain data service.

The Brazilian population has a median age of 32, according to data from Worldometer, and most digital asset investors are milennials and GenZ.

Bitfinex supports seven languages, including English, Russian, Spanish, traditional and simplified Chinese, Turkish, and now Portuguese as it further illustrates its ongoing commitment to localizing its platform.

Bitfinex has recently launched a Financial Information eXchange (FIX) gateway amid a surge in demand for high-speed connectivity among the exchange’s growing user base.

The message routing service using the FIX protocol will be adopted by the cryptocurrency exchange to enable institutional customers to use their existing FIX infrastructure in order to connect to the Bitfinex platform.

The introduction of FIX will prevent bottlenecks on the platform, particularly during episodes of high levels of volatility, thereby enhancing overall levels of latency and performance on the platform.
