While bitcoin trading is increasingly popular in Kenya via established platforms like Paxful and Binance, few are aware of one particular trader doing the same right on the streets of Nairobi, the Capital City of Kenya.
Lewis Mutugi is a crypto street vendor who helps buyers purchase bitcoin via mobile money right on the streets.
