South’s Africa’s Leading Crypto Exchange, VALR, Launches an Arbitrage Trading Desk

VALR, South Africa’s largest crypto exchange by volume, has launched an arbitrage desk to help its clients take advantage of the differences in local and international Bitcoin prices to amplify their funds.

The service, dubbed VALR Arbitrage, is still in pilot stage but is open to South Africans or residents looking to get in.

VALR Arbitrage helps customers “buy low and sell high” simultaneously in local and international cryptocurrency markets to lock in a profit.

Crypto arbitrage in South Africa has had impressive returns. Eligible individuals that have SARS regulatory approval, with R1,000,000 (about $65, 000) for example, which is the annual SA exchange control allowance, have historically earned up to R50, 000 (about $3,500).

Depending on the initial capital being traded, it takes between a few days to a few weeks of arbitrage trading to get your capital and profits back.

In summary, the higher the initial amount of trading capital, the quicker your principal and profits will be returned and the better the return will be.

Speaking to BitKE, Farzam Ehsani, CEO, VALR, said:

“VALR launched the VALR Arbitrage service to help people take advantage of pricing dislocations in local and international markets.

This opportunity really exists because of capital controls in the South African market.

We’re excited that this product will be of benefit to South African citizens and residents.”
