The Grantcoin Foundation is pleased to announce our partnership with Rippex, a Ripple gateway based in Brazil. The Foundation will establish a market on Ripple Trade for users to trade Grantcoin for Brazilian reals using the BRL.Rippex token, which represents the Brazilian currency on the Ripple platform.
Rippex will help the Grantcoin Foundation find organizations and businesses in Brazil whose values align with Grantcoin, and other opportunities to spread the word about Grantcoin in this important emerging market. Brazil is the largest economy in South America and the seventh-largest economy in the world by GDP.
“We’re excited to build a mutually beneficial relationship with the premier Ripple gateway in South America,” said Eric Stetson, Executive Director of the Grantcoin Foundation. “We look forward to providing a GRT/BRL market with Rippex, and working together to raise awareness about Grantcoin among socially and environmentally conscious people and organizations in Brazil.”
