Paxful, the leading peer-to-peer financial platform with over 5 million users around the world has chosen to add Xago as their latest partner to connect more South Africans to the global financial network via cryptocurrencies.

Xago is expanding rapidly, especially into emerging markets, and joining the Paxful stable is certainly opening up Xago’s clients to like-minded individuals who value real-time trade. By simply having both Xago and Paxful accounts, Xago users can now trade with individuals on the Paxful platform from all over the world.”We’re delighted to be partnering with Xago. Together we can offer a localised solution to help South Africans use cryptocurrencies in everyday life for payments or as a medium of exchange for example. There’s a growing interest in cryptocurrencies in South Africa and we’re looking forward to making it easier and better for South Africans to use them to access the global economy,” comments Modibe Matsepane, Africa Community Coordinator at Paxful.

The peer-to-peer system of Paxful removes borders and limits. With a Paxful account, people can send money and purchase items with other individuals across the world, as well as build a business with their Bitcoin affiliate program.

“Our partnership with Paxful is perfectly timed for increased trading as we end off the first quarter of 2021. Our highly experienced leadership and engineering teams have worked extensively on our platform to continue to drive efficiency and new features will be launching shortly.  We are obviously very pleased to be part of the Paxful global community and look forward to ongoing opportunities between our clients,” emphasises Kevin Lewis, Chief Revenue Officer at Xago.
