PHILIPPINE Digital Asset Exchange (PDAX), the Philippines’ leading homegrown cryptocurrency exchange supervised by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, is now officially part of UnionBank Philippines (UBP)’s Digital Business Solutions Partner Referral Program as one of its accredited fintech partners for crypto services and digital solutions.

This momentous partnership of PDAX with UBP allows the leading digital bank to recommend PDAX’s trusted crypto services and digital solutions to their esteemed business-to-business (B2B) clients, legitimizing PDAX even further to a wider market and increasing PDAX’s reach and penetration across various industries. This vote of confidence from UBP will not only help PDAX grow its client base in the Philippines, but also help PDAX understand the market better while the UBP team assists by endorsing PDAX’s solutions to customers they deem would benefit the most from PDAX’s crypto solutions.
