Today we are releasing AnclaX in private beta https://anclax.com/, a Stellar anchor in Colombia - our initial offering is to allow people to trade XLM (and other assets) in the Stellar Decentralized Exchange using Colombian Pesos (COP).
How does it work?
When an user signs up for our service, we collect the Stellar account they'll be using for trading.
After they send the first deposit to our bank we issue the equivalent minus a fee in their Stellar account, which they can then use to trade using the Stellar Decentralized Exchange via StellarTerm or StellarPort.
After they are done with their trades and want to convert back to fiat, they send their COPs to a federated address and we send them the money to their registered bank account.
For now our target is mostly people who know how to "save" their seed but eventually we want to offer full-federation so people don't have to worry about it.
XLM - COP
We are listed in Stellarterm
And Stellar Port
We'll be in private beta for the next couple of weeks.
After opening up to the public we want to start exploring new services like allowing vendors or stores to receive Lumens or integrating with anchors in other countries to allow cross-asset payments.
Also we plan to start creating initiatives to educate people on how to use Stellar.
Looking forward for your questions, ideas and suggestions.
