We are pleased to announce that our partner, ICE3X has launched its new platform for trading ethereum.
Gareth Grobler, the CEO of Ice3X is confident that the Exchange’s one-of-a-kind solution will bring versatility and multiple currencies to Africa’s bitcoin exchange market. This is especially relevant to those traders that also want to trade in Ether currency. With these new platform, the Exchange keeps pushing the boundaries to ensure that best practices are supported by the best application to allow traders to exchange currencies at the lowest fees (and no fees on deposits).
Ice3x is a South African bitcoin exchange platform launched in 2015. Furthermore, ICE3X has partnered with Vogue Pay , Africa’s biggest payment processor, to give local currencies like the Naira access to crypto coins. This partnership’s drive is in support of especially online retailers still desperately trying to combat credit card fraud in Nigeria.
Like so many Africans with a passion to see the continent rise from its current financial status, Geoffrey Weli Wosu, Marketing Director of VoguePay, feels that there is no question towards the critical importance of alternative trading options. He noted that, “as a payment processing company, we saw the future in Blockchain technology and the importance to partner with a company that can help us satisfy the inquiries from our customers towards innovation in this area. This is needed in our market. So, instead of going abroad to London (for instance), we decided to go with an African company like ICE3X to keep the deal in Africa”.
For those new to crypto currencies, there are (as can be expected) a large number of sources that can help make sense of this upgrade to traditional ways of paying for goods. A good start it to look at Bitcoin School on ICE3X’s site, that offers an insight on topics ranging from “What is a Bitcoin Exchange Provider?” to “Bitcoin vs Cash”.
All Ice3X users (both Nigerian and International) can apply for Miner’s Trading Fee Discount Plan by contacting their helpdesk. With this announcement, ICE3X is poised to serve its Nigeria users with the option to fund their account through VoguePay; their official Nigeria partner.
