Meanwhile, Nubank was established in 2013 with 40 million customers, making it the biggest digital bank globally in terms of clients. According to Reuters, this new investment is expected to give Nubank a $30 billion valuation. Also, they said that the bank is planning to list in a U.S stock exchange this year.
Apart from this, Nubank has more than once expressed it will be offering Bitcoin investment to customers following the acquisition of Easynvest. Last week, they also announced that the bank has rebranded to Easynvest by Nubank, a business organization that offers Bitcoin ETF.

It is also listed on the B3 stock change, which is the biggest stock trades in Latin America and the second oldest in Brazil.
Lastly, Nubank said this Tuesday that it intends to utilize the cash raised to support its expansion in Mexico and Colombia. They will also use it to launch new products, and recruit additional laborers.
