While Kenya has no doubt seen impressive growth since 2020, the company says other Key African markets have also experienced remarkable growth.
In an exclusive with BitcoinKE, Michael Foster, CEO, LocalCryptos, said:
“Since adding new African mobile money payment methods including Chipper Cash, Airtel Money, MTN Mobile Money, and EcoCash, we are seeing consistent double-digit percentage growth every month in key African markets.
In Nigeria, there has been an increase in trades by 300% since the start of 2020. We have also seen new highs in Ghana, South Africa, Uganda, and more.” ~ CEO, LocalCryptos
In order to enhance its built-in non-custodial crypto wallet and offer users greater control, LocalCryptos has announced an integration with ChangeNOW which enables its users to instantenously exchange or swap one crypto to another directly via its web wallet.
Wallet users will now sport a new ‘Swap’ feature. To use the service:
Open your LocalCryptos wallet
Select the crypto you want to swap and receive – For example, Ethereum for Bitcoin
Enter the amount you want to swap
Confirm the live exchange rate
The "Swap" button is inside the "Wallet" section on the LocalCryptos website
If you made a swap on LocalCryptos before this announcement, your exchange is also eligible. Just find your exchange ID and post it in replies.
“LocalCryptos delivers a peer-to-peer bridge between fiat worlds and crypto worlds, but until today those bridges were isolated for each crypto. With our integration with ChangeNOW, LocalCryptos has finally joined its crypto worlds together and completed the circuit for crypto trading. Not only can users now trade fiat to their crypto of choice, they can swap between cryptos all within the LocalCryptos platform – giving users even more control of their financial freedom.
By adding a crypto-to-crypto swap feature, we’re providing more choices to African crypto traders and connecting our three peer-to-peer crypto markets together — ETH, BTC, and LTC.” ~ CEO, LocalCryptos
