How to Buy Bitcoin at a Cheap Price in Nigeria

by | Oct 21, 2019 | Exchange, Tutorial | 2 comments

The main focus of this post is to show you how to buy Bitcoin at a cheap price in Nigeria.

With the year rounding up gradually, it is time for some last-minute investments.

Considering the volatile nature of Bitcoin (and other altcoins), it becomes the very best option to consider for investment (as you can buy at the bearish era and sell when it is bullish).

Bitcoin can be gotten from either Bitcoin mining(which is not very profitable anymore) or from an easier way…. Buying them from exchanges.

So today in this post, I will be walking through where and how to buy Bitcoin cheaply in Nigeria.

Come with me as we start off; it promises to be ‘edu-taining’(as my friend that shortens everything will combine educative and entertaining).

Post Summary

To smoothly take you through the discussion of today, I have listed out subheadings under which we will thoroughly dissect the topic.

They are:

As usual, a click on any of the subheadings brings you directly to its details.

I would have said ‘bon appetit’  but it’s not food, right?

So, ‘bon voyage’ should suffice as you set out on this ‘edu-taining’ journey.

Exchanges and Types


An Exchange(as the name implies) is a company that allows its users to exchange cryptocurrencies for fiat currency and other currencies.

The companies serve as supermarkets for crypto enthusiasts.

Just as you visit the market/supermarket to purchase your groceries, you can equally visit an exchange to acquire crypto coins.

Following the evolution of Bitcoin in 2009 and the later introduction of other altcoins, many companies were created specifically for the exchange of cryptocurrencies.

At the moment, it is difficult to determine the exact number of exchanges since there is no central body where the companies are registered and regulations differ from country to country.

But as of the moment of writing this post, we have 285 exchanges tracked on coinmarketcap with 2980 cryptocurrencies and 20,891 markets.

These exchanges have their specializations as will be seen below.

Types of Exchanges

Based on the type of services offered, these exchanges are grouped into 3 different types:

  • Broker Exchanges

How Broker exchanges work is that users send money and the exchange sends Bitcoin to them and when the users send Bitcoin, the exchange sends money to their bank accounts.

Examples are Yellow Card and Monicko

Exchanges like this connect buyers and sellers on their platforms and chaperons the trade using an Escrow.

Exchanges in this category are Remitano and Paxful

These exchanges allow users on its platform to trade cryptocurrency pairs such as BTC/NGN, BTC/USD, BTC/ETH, e.t.c.

Examples here are Bybit, OKX, and CoinCola.

Note that some of the exchanges here double as Brokers(Quidax, Luno) while the other(CoinCola) is also a Peer-to-Peer exchange.

Armed with this brief background on Exchanges, let’s go find out how to buy Bitcoin at a cheap price in Nigeria.

How to Buy Bitcoin at a Cheap Price in Nigeria

Having discussed the 10 best exchanges to buy Bitcoin in Nigeria and the 10 best exchanges to buy and sell cryptocurrencies in Nigeria in previous posts, how to buy Bitcoin at a cheap price becomes another topic to discuss.

My Verdict: And the Best is …

Having discussed the 3 types of exchanges available and picked out the high flyers from each category, you will still want to know which is the best, right?

We all have different reasons why we will want to trade the Bitcoin we have at some point: you might want to purchase and ‘hodl’ or purchase to sell instantly to make some gain, and at other times, you might just sell off the cryptos you have in exchange for a quick buck to attend to a need.

But after taking these facts into consideration, the choice is still yours to make.

So, here’s my verdict: The best at every point should be one that attends to the need(s) you have!

And considering the many scam sites online marauding as legit, I will always add that as you toe the line of investment, caution is a necessary virtue.
