BitX extends Bitcoin operations to Nigeria

We’re very excited to be expanding our operations to Africa’s largest economy: Nigeria.

BitX Nigeria

Starting today, Nigerians will be able to buy and sell bitcoin instantly using the BitX Android app or iOS app apps, trade naira/bitcoin on the BitX Exchange and use the powerful BitX API to develop their own Bitcoin products and services.

We’ve been inundated with requests for Bitcoin products and services from consumers, developers and businesses in Nigeria and we’re working with a number of partners to bring exciting new products to the market.

As with all our operational countries, we’re very focused on security and compliance. We have the same, stringent KYC (know your customer), AML (anti-money laundering) and fraud detection mechanisms in place.

Nigeria has a vibrant, diverse and growing online population and in a market scattered with inefficient and expensive online payment methods, we’re excited about Bitcoin’s potential for faster and cheaper settlements.

If you’re in Nigeria, simply click here to get started with either our web or mobile wallets.
