Binance has been actively engaging with local communities and governments to promote cryptocurrency adoption and education across the continent.
In 2020, Binance launched its P2P trading platform in Nigeria, allowing users to trade cryptocurrencies directly with each other using their local currency. Binance also launched a fiat-to-crypto platform in South Africa, allowing users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies using the South African Rand.
Binance has also established partnerships with various African blockchain and cryptocurrency projects, such as the African-focused blockchain startup Bundle, and the Africa-based blockchain-based ride-hailing app, RideSafe.
Additionally, Binance has launched various initiatives aimed at promoting cryptocurrency adoption in Africa, such as the Binance Africa Masterclass, a series of educational webinars focused on blockchain and cryptocurrency.
Overall, Binance’s presence in Africa has been steadily growing, and the company has expressed its commitment to supporting the development of the cryptocurrency ecosystem on the continent.
