With the rise in the number of people that want to buy Bitcoin, exchanges are putting things in place to make trading of bitcoin easy for their users.
In fact, exchanges like Remitano now allow users to sell their bitcoin and transfer the equivalent to their bank account.
Sending cash to families, business partners, and friends all over the world is almost inevitable.
However, the fee charged to send cash through financial institutions is always high, with an average of 10% per transaction.
Digital assets have proven to be useful tools for seamless international remittances, promoting fast transactions at reduced costs.
Cryptocurrencies have reduced transaction fees for local and international payments by about 90%.
Digital assets such as bitcoin can be used to transfer funds around the globe in seconds.
This gives customers numerous advantages over native cash transfer systems and financial institutions.
A few years back, transferring bitcoin into your bank account was almost impossible.
Bitcoin holders couldn’t cash their bitcoin and transfer the money into their bank account easily.
The only possible way was to go through the local P2P exchangers, which is very risky.
Recent innovations by exchanges have now made it possible to link your crypto wallet to your bank account to make it easy to cash out your bitcoin.
For example, you can buy BTC on Remitano, convert it to Naira, and send it straight to your bank account easily.
What Are The Steps Involved In Sending Bitcoin To A Bank Account?
Most cryptocurrency exchanges are only ideal for crypto to crypto transactions, which means that you can’t convert your bitcoin into fiat and vice versa.
However, few exchanges allow you to buy bitcoin with fiat and convert your bitcoin fiat. But they are rare.
Typically, users will need to send bitcoin from their wallet to exchanges that allow fiat-to-crypto transactions, sell it to naira and then transfer the naira equivalent to their bank account.
The process can be broken down into these steps.
- Move BTC from personal wallet to exchange
- Sell the cryptocurrency for naira
- Send to a supported bank account
Keeping that in mind, let review some of the exchanges that allow you to send your bitcoin straight into your bank account.
Remitano P2P is the ultimate exchange for sending bitcoin funds into your bank account.
