Nigeria in particular has seen a shift in bitcoin trades. Just a few months ago, bitcoin was trading at a discount. As of now, it is at a premium as shown below.
The CEO of Paxful, Ray Youssef, has also said that the exchange trade volumes are up by over 20%, with record breaking new user signups coming from:
Another BlockBuster week on @Paxful. Trade volume up over 20%+ and record breaking new user signups! Ghana 🇬🇭 Nigeria 🇳🇬 and Pakistan 🇵🇰 are leading the way! #bitcoin recent upswing will soon have another wave based on real human demand! #p2pfinance
“Total volume in Latin America+Africa+Asia Pacific is almost 30 million $ per week. After halving (at actual price) miners will mine 56 million $ per week. It means over half of new bitcoin supply will be eaten up by poorest regions of the world.”
