according to Legality of bitcoin by country or territory, Morocco ,Egypt and Algeria are banning the purchase, use, and holding of so called virtual currencies. without regulation BitOasis can not run any business on those countries sadly  Undecided

Might add BitOasis to the list. It's primarily based in Middle East but serves North Africa (Morocco and Egypt). Happen to know they've been considering going a bit further SouthEast too...

i don't Know if you wish to add trading platform in your list.
check out :https://www.quidax.com Nigeria.
You can trade with Naira as well.
luno is also popular but i prefer quidax.

@buwaytress: Thanks! Regarding BitOasis, this list was meant to contain cryptocurrency businesses based in Africa, and BitOasis, according to their TOS, is based legally on the British Virgin Islands (see here). However, I guess they have headquarters somewhere different. Do you know in which country exactly they're based? If it's in North Africa, then they're welcome on this list Smiley

Pesamill is, surprisingly, based in Australia (see here) so they unfortunately do not belong to the list either ... Maybe I could add a section for these cases where foreign companies explicitly target their services to African countries.

check out :https://www.quidax.com Nigeria.
Thanks! Will add them ... they're based in Nigeria as stated in their website.

This is really good, although I haven’t used any of them. But I do know about nairaex, their services can be trusted. I usually do person to person transaction. There is also Pufftech, I buy from them and when I want to sell I also sell to them, their services is the fastest I’ve ever seen, they make payments in a flash.

Thanks. I have searched for Pufftech, but can't find any website - do you know one? In some forums they publish a phone number, so it seems they're operating over WhatsApp. I don't consider that very trustworthy, and thus I will wait to include them in this list until they have a working website.

Ah, sorry about that OP! I did indeed misunderstand... and now see Seychelles even qualifies although it's practically an offshore location (still considered part of Africa but much in the sense Maldives might be considered South Asia).

Really does reflect the global nature of these companies... Binance, clearly china targeted, now based in Malta after a short time in Japan and then HK. BVI clearly an attempt at tax structuring but yeah Pesamill is the strangest of the lot. Clearly African centric, yet based in Australia when they probably stand more to gain from another jurisdiction.

Nevertheless, keep this up. I'd love to see something similar for Central and South America, and then Southeast Asia!

You forgot to mention one exchange that is currently in Africa and that is Luno. They offer their services to some African countries and I can remember they launched I’m Nigeria last tow or three years. Heard that users of the exchange can easily buy and sell cryptocurrency, another thing being that they can also withdraw straight to their banks. I believe there are also many of them available and offering their services in Africa.

Thanks. I've looked at their home page (I think you meant https://www.luno.com)  and they have a base in Cape Town, so they could qualify for this list. In February I plan the next update for the list, will try to investigate a bit about Luno's launch in Nigeria and other service providers proposed here, and try to find new ones.

Stay away from Bitforex, Bitforex has been performing wash trades and here are some of the token pairs where these bot trades can be detected.

thanks d5000, +1merit (owe you more though) love when positive things about Africa are been showcase to the world. Although luno is a South Africa based exchange it has her biggest trading volume from Nigeria as the no1 in Africa based on trading volume. Bitcoin/blockchain is been welcomed in Africa mostly by the citizens my thread: The used of Bitcoin in Africa speaks more on that. I'll love to see this list always kept up-to-date. Keep up the good work.

I do not know the criteria you used for your selection but I think ecurrency4u.net, a very reliable exchange based in Ghana can also make it to your list.

Thank you! I checked it and added it.

The only criteria is that the company must have its seat on the African continent, including the surrounding islands that belong to Africa, like Cape Verde, Seychelles, Madagascar etc. The company can have another seat in non-African countries (like Luno), but the African office must be more than only a "branch office".

Then obviously the company must exist and not be a scam - however, known scams can be added to the last "Possible scams" section, without a hot link, with the purpose to warn users. This also applies to pure Multilevel/Pyramidal schemes and HYIP/Ponzis, which won't make it into the main section.

I don't live on the continent of Africa but I like to see this head, at least I see some progress there and Africa is a big market. the blockchain will become a big commodity along with Asia.
Just came from Nigeria, for 3 months, I have visited more than 4 big conferences. On which the number of visitors is constantly growing. A lot of Nigerians have started to trade crypto and learn what blockchain is.

Of all this highlighted websites, I can only testify for remitano and luno this websites have massive user interaction with unique features. It supports my country fiat for fast transactions of coins and have never for once encountered any form of threat or lagging on the websites. I believe Africans are also contributing greatly to the crypto sector.

A friend uses a Nigerian forum nairaland business section to sell and buy bitcoin via doyinexchange and etradexchange whose services are legitimate and swift, he had never complained of any fraud or scam moreso the of escrow is allow to encourage trust and transparency and since he had been using their services there is never any complain Thanks for bringing those other exchanges to our notice. I hope their legitimacy is not in doubt.

We had already a lot of theoretic discussions how Bitcoin could benefit the African countries. Now I am interested to create a list of already existing businesses and services that are operated from the African continent.

So I would be grateful for every hint, link, or name of African Bitcoin businesses. All African countries, also Maghreb countries and island states like Cape Verde, are allowed (except the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla). The business model should be intimately related to Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies in general. Known Multilevel/pyramid schemes can also be listed, but in a separate section where the scam danger is clearly described, and without a "hot" link.

- Last update: 2018-12-21 -

Exchanges:

..........................


 comment in this thread.[/b] It will, if there is enough evidence for suspicion, then be moved into the "Possible scams" section.



@d5000, thanks for taking time to compile such list.

Very useful. i will keep an eye's on these list.
Pls, updating!!  Guyz keep bumping it occasionally.

Regard's

I can't say about Luno but I can only testify about remitano. I used it couple of times before I moved to exchange, what I can say about then is that I like the way they use to hold the coin till or fiat till the buyer or seller releases their own part of the payment; their escrow is good. The only disadvantage with them is their rate. Sometimes it's not encouraging. Their customers service is good too just like that of Xch4nge which also is going worldwide.

Just an update to let you know I have fulfilled my debt lol. Keep up your good work. And as for those comparing luno and remitano, you need understand they offer different services luno is like coinbase for (Africa) while remitano is more of nigeria's (localbitcoin.com).

I see there are some Africa brothers and sisters on this thread I would had love if we could have a board were we can hangout and discuss issue relating to us like others do but we don't have that so I started a Signature Campaign early for awareness of a hangout thread those interested can sign-in and hopefully we keep the thread active.

OP sorry for using your thread as an advert platform but I'm hoping to get Africans attention as this is a thread related to Africans.
