“At VALR, we believe in creating a financial system that recognises the oneness of humanity. Cryptocurrencies have the potential of achieving this vision.
We recognised that the Celo token team has a vision in line with ours and also has a promising footprint in the African continent.
We are in talks with the team to run a campaign for our customers to learn about Celo and its uses. More details to come soon.”

According to Badi, a growing demand for US Dollar stablecoins locally has also led to VALR listing PAX and USDC stablecoins.
In addition, the exchange has also listed Polkadot (DOT), one of the top 10 largest cryptocurrencies by marketcap as well as DeFi token, Compound (COMP) and general-purpose blockchain Algorand (ALGO), all tradable on VALR.
