One of the world’s largest crypto exchanges, Huobi, has recently added a new fiat gateway. This gateway is between the Indonesian Rupiah, or IDR, and the famous Tether coin, or USDT.
Adding to Goals of Global Expansion
On the 27t of December 2019, the Huobi Group announced that the company was launching a new fiat gateway. This gateway will allow investors situated in Indonesia to make use of the country’s IDR to trade in over 250 different forms of cryptocurrency available to its Indonesian arm.
David Chen, the senior director of Huobi Cloud, gave a comment about the matter. He explained that the new gateway serves as part of Huobi’s ambitions of global expansion. Chen stated that it reflects the exchange’s commitment to work with its active local partners in critical markets around the world.
