Dash is now available for purchase at over 13,000 locations around Brazil.
CoinBR is a Brazil-based cryptocurrency company offering a variety of services including an exchange, mining, bill payment, point-of-sale, and more. In July, the company announced that it had officially integrated Dash into the platform:
A CoinBR é a plataforma brasileira ~real/oficial~ que disponibiliza Dash aos seus usuários.

A new easy gateway for Dash buying all across Brazil
The news of this integration was originally reported by DashBR, a popular site in Dash’s Brazilian community:
“Recently, CoinBR (a Brazilian exchange) announced that anyone in Brazil now can buy Dash easily through bank deposit in one of the most popular banks in the country. Everyone that has access to what it´s called a “lottery house” (a popular place to bet in the government´s lottery and that also provide some banking services) will be able to deposit fiat money in CoinBR’s account and receive Dash in its Dash wallet inside the platform. This is a huge step toward mass adoption of Dash in Brazil because of the wide spread of these places all over the country. This means that right now we have more than 13,000 (thirteen thousand) places in which Brazilians can buy Dash!”
The addition of Dash buying services at lottery houses around the country expands potential reach to those who may feel intimidated with online financial transactions, especially for digital currencies. Additionally, the inclusion of Dash in a staple the everyday financial services experience cements its credibility.
Dash accessibility growing rapidly globally
The ease of acquiring Dash around the world has grown significantly in recent months. Earlier this month, Dash was added to Uphold, allowing users all over the world to easily and quickly exchange dozens of different currencies for Dash. This also enables workers around the world to receive their salary in Dash through a partnership between Uphold and Bitwage.
At present, DiscoverDash lists 112 Dash ATMs around the world, with more being listed every week. Integration into BTCU.biz enabled Dash buying at 9,000 kiosks around Ukraine. In addition to a healthy spread of ATMs around the country, Austria also benefits from Dash integration into BitPanda, allowing the purchase of Dash vouchers for cash at post office locations all over the country.
great news for dash, and I imagine the number of locations and opportunities for folks to buy some dash will only continue to increase. partnerships like this are essential.
to anyone reading this, what truly sets dash apart is it’s ability to transfer instantly, transfer fees of less than one cent, and it’s decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) structure that allows it to fund it’s own expansion
It’s really exciting!
I wish there was a Dash ATM here in Phoenix Arizona. Considering the core team works here it surprises me that there is no Dash ATM here. At least none that I am able to find. If there is one here, then they really need to put that information on DiscoverDash.com. I would be using that ATM all the time!
You can do just about as good with Wall of Coins.
Last I remember I could buy directly with my befit card. These days I still go to coinbase and then shapeshift. Often via LTC. Slow and painful but they directly take my debit/credit card, and it just works.
Why bother with high fees. Try CEX.io and you can have Dash/Fiat trading pairs. you can use debit cards.
Not familiar. I will check that out.
I tried to use CEX.io, and apparently they won’t accept credit/debit cards from arizona. *grumble*
Give Uphold a shot, they should have credit cards enabled by now.
Sorry to hear. As Joel said, Try Uphold.
Oh. So if you’re already doing the AML/KYC route, just do Uphold. I hear it’s faster and easier than Coinbase, and right now there’s a special Dash discount.
They are still not accepting credit/debit cards. I would love for that to work.
