We are happy to announce some major new features that we’ve added to the DSTOQ App, which we hope to make investing even more accessible and affordable to people in emerging markets.
USD is now supported in the DSTOQ App through an integration with AnchorUSD. From this week onwards trading can occur in USD vs each available asset on the DSTOQ app, which we believe greatly improves and simplifies the user experience.
Additionally, as of this week users from Brazil and Nigeria are able to fund their accounts directly from their local bank accounts. The new deposit and withdrawal methods have been made possible through our integrations with nTokens, and Cowrie Systems who are integrated directly into the banking system.
The process is designed to be as simple as possible so that when a user wishes to fund their account on DSTOQ, they can choose their desired currency, and are then shown the relevant bank details to which they need to make a payment in order to fund their account via our partners. It works the same way for withdrawals to your bank account in Brazil, or Nigeria. Overtime we will add this feature to more countries.
We have also added a new Convert feature, which enables users to convert Brazilian Real, Nigerian Naira or XLM to USD - and back.
The new Convert feature can be accessed through the trading flow, or via the Profile screen.
With these major new features added, we hope to make investing even more accessible and affordable. Stay tuned to see what other features we add over time, and if you have any suggestions, please feel free to send them directly to us via Twitter.
