Aimed at advancing cryptocurrency accessibility in Nigeria, Yellow Card, an African fintech company, has forged a strategic alliance with MoonPay, a global leader in the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
This partnership seeks to streamline and enrich the cryptocurrency purchasing experience for Nigerians by harnessing the power of local bank transfers.
Nigeria has recently emerged as a cryptocurrency powerhouse within the African landscape, with a growing number of individuals turning to digital assets as a hedge against inflation and economic uncertainty. The cryptocurrency market in Nigeria has been marked by volatility, exemplified by recent challenges faced by various crypto companies, highlighting the urgent need for a stable and dependable means of accessing cryptocurrencies.
Yellow Card, recognized as the largest and fastest-growing cryptocurrency company across the continent, has a proven track record spanning 17 markets, with a particular stronghold in Nigeria. The collaboration with MoonPay signifies a pivotal moment in the accessibility and utility of cryptocurrencies within the region.

By joining forces with MoonPay, we aim to dismantle the barriers preventing Nigerians from participating in the crypto economy. Together, we can simplify crypto trading, making it accessible and intuitive for all,” stated Uzoma James, West Africa Regional Manager at Yellow Card.
MoonPay, a leader in the cryptocurrency industry, offers a comprehensive suite of solutions that simplify the onboarding process for newcomers to the crypto world. With this partnership, MoonPay is poised to extend its reach into the Nigerian market, catering to the unique needs and challenges faced by the local population.
“Supporting local bank transfers unlocks immense opportunities for crypto users, and we’re eager to introduce this experience to Yellow Card’s fast-growing ecosystem. Offering a simple, inclusive transaction method for users across Africa is an exciting step forward in our vision to onboard the world to Web3,” affirmed Ivan Soto-Wright, Co-Founder and CEO at MoonPay.
The integration between Yellow Card and MoonPay will empower Nigerians to engage in peer-to-peer crypto transactions with unprecedented ease. By leveraging local bank transfers, users can overcome many of the obstacles that have historically hindered the crypto purchasing process. This integration promises to redefine the landscape of cryptocurrency accessibility in Nigeria, making it more inclusive and user-friendly.
Both Yellow Card and MoonPay seek to promote financial inclusion and innovation. This partnership marks a significant stride towards realizing these objectives in the Nigerian market.
