Part of the money will be used to expand its operations in Latin America in 2021 and 2022, including Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay. In addition to Kingsway Capital, Draper Associates, Valor Capital, Cadenza Capital Management, Draper Cygnus, Coinbase Ventures, and Supervielle participated in the round.
