1. Luno’s Solution For Naira Transactions
Luno is a cryptocurrency exchange/wallet provider.
It was first established in 2013 as Bitx in Singapore and rebranded to Luno in 2017.
Some services offered by the platform include Instant buy/sell, Exchange, Wallet, etc.
This exchange is the most popular in South Africa, where it records its highest trading volume (followed by Nigeria).
Therefore, it was expedient that it found a solution for its Nigerian customers to use the platform conveniently again.
Luno does this with the help of a third party – Afrivoucher.
Customers simply purchase a voucher from this third party and then redeem it for use on the exchange.
Afrivoucher accepts payment via debit/credit card and bank transfer.
