Paxful Adds Bitsika as a Payment Method

This is in response to the increased demand for local payment methods so as to include more Nigerians in the crypto industry.

Global peer-to-peer crypto marketplace, Paxful, has announced the addition of Bitsika to its platform, thereby expanding its range of local payment methods in Nigeria. This addition allows Paxful users to deposit Cedis, Naira, Dollars, CFA through the Bitsika app to facilitate easy transactions.

Bitsika was launched in Nigeria in 2019 to provide faster and easier payments across the globe whilst saving its users of the high costs of traditional money operators.
