Naijacrypto, one of Africa’s leading cryptocurrency exchanges has announced the launch of its services in Haiti, representing its first major expansion beyond the African continent. Partnering with DASH, an innovative cryptocurrency dominant in the payments sector, Naijacrypto will now offer the Haitian local currency, the Gourde, in exchange for cryptos. This will offer Haitians the opportunity to access the global cryptocurrency market directly, rather than using informal and complicated third-party channels.
Following its impressive platform upgrades in 2020 where it became one of the few indigenous crypto exchanges to offer unique spot and futures trading platforms, as well as the development of its Naijapay widget, 2021 has been a year of expansion for the exchange with the launch of its operations in Kenya announced earlier in February. That expansion, much like the Haitian one, allowed for the trading of KES/Crypto pairs on the exchange, improving crypto accessibility in a major emerging market.
The Haiti expansion now means HTG/DASH pairs are now tradeable on the Naijacrypto exchange. Demonstrably, financial inclusion takes center stage within the Naijacrypto business framework. Both in Africa and beyond, the exchange’s essential strategy lies in finding the right balance between creating mediums for financial accessibility and maintaining world-class standards for users in emerging markets.
The foray into the Haitian market looks certain to be succeeded by a raft of innovative introductions by Naijacrypto as it looks to build on its impressive accomplishments over the past 24 months. It is currently beta-testing a new and improved app, which will be downloadable on both google and IOS stores, and currently working towards integrating the BSC network on its platform, thereby facilitating the reduction of gas fees and improving transaction affordability for users.
CEO Chiagozie Iwu has stressed that more expansions beyond the African market is on the horizon. Given the exchange’s rapid evolution and competitiveness since its founding, very few will bet against its chances of realizing this goal.
