Brazil-based bitcoin startup Rippex has announced the former founders of digital payments gateway PagSeguro have joined its team.
co-founder Rafael Olaio indicated that Ricardo Dortas Schonhofen and Paulo Lavinas Barbosa will join the company through a partnership with business development firm CloudPar, though they will be working in a full-time capacity.

Rippex, which runs one of two Brazil-based gateways for the Ripple payment network, suggested it is now increasingly focused on appealing to enterprise financial institutions with solutions for asset trading and international payments.
