The exchange definitely knows how to both work and play. The competition is beyond the earnings. It is Binance’s way of telling us to stop and smell the roses. Bringing us out of the ever-busy world of crypto, to enjoy this season of Halloween.
Beyond Halloween, the exchange also announced the listing of the first fiat to crypto service on its platform. Binance users in Nigeria can now trade the Nigerian Naira for BUSD, BNB, and BTC. The exchange will also be running a zero deposit fee for deposit up to $100. Though for an unspecified period of time.
Speaking on the listing, CZ pointed out that the listing was timely as a lot of people in Sub-Saharan Africa are still unbanked. He said: “[…] In Sub-Saharan Africa, about 95 million people remain unbanked while many regions in the area, including Nigeria, have embraced new technologies with an increasing amount of innovation”.
