Quidax has partnered up with Ripple, and it’s positioned to start using the blockchain firm’s xRapid product (the only product of the company that uses XRP) to revolutionize money transfers and settlements.
Not too long ago, Quidax, a European based virtual asset exchange, launched its services in Nigeria in an attempt to spread its wings to the African continent. Their story dates back to 2016 when their architects came together to develop a platform with the intention to leave a dent in the financial sector. Their primary purpose is to open the doors of opportunity to as many individuals as possible who are interested in making money and in wealth creation.
The second Ripple partner in Africa (first was Flutterwave who embraced the Ripple blockchain not too long ago), Quidax is being hosted by a trading platform which will allow their users to buy and sell digital assets using their secure, simple, and seamless user interface. Once it gets launched, Quidax will facilitate their users with the capability to buy and sell six virtual currencies with the promise to expand to over 20 cryptos in the next three months.
According to the CEO of Quidax Africa, Buchi Okoro, who happens to be Nigerian, the platform has the potential to break the existing financial barriers that will, in turn, allow Nigerian residents to have more opportunities to create wealth for themselves. He disclosed:
“Having thought about the problems that are bedeviling the current financial landscape in a global level, our mission as Quidax is to challenge the status quo by pushing humanity forward. As an exchange, our goal is to break down financial barriers that are barring our people from accessing wealth creation opportunities”
By looking at the sheer number of alternatives available to their users, we can undoubtedly conclude that Quidax is the substantial exchange platform functioning in Africa. The digital tokens included in the exchange (as of now) include Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Ripple’s XRP, Bitcoin, and Litecoin.
One of the things that make Quidax stand out is its ability to take away the hustle of running between minimized mobile applications while transacting. It also offers a wide range of virtual assets to buy and sell. The all-inclusive benefit of Quidax has spark interest among many crypto enthusiasts in Africa contributing to the massive trade sign-ups being experienced on their platform.
Currently, the crypto exchange company is at an advanced level of its preparations to kickstart its cryptocurrency and blockchain education to increase the level of literacy in Nigeria and the African continent at large. The cryptocurrency literacy endeavor is needed on the African continent now more than ever.
Apart from offering Nigerians more information concerning cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, Quidax will also be facilitating citizens of the West African with a platform to trade virtual currencies. To achieve this, the company is looking into partnering with key individuals who are instrumental in the Abuja Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence Roundtable event. CEO Okoro added,
“As a cryptocurrency trade platform, Quidax is open to collaboration with other players in our quest to achieve our vision and mission of enlightening Nigerians and Africans on this emerging technology.”
Ripple (XRP) Price Analysis After Partnership with Quidax
Ripple’s new innovative product for making payments, xRapid, is already facilitating businesses and financial institutions with capabilities of transacting with one another seamlessly without friction. And early this morning, the world woke up to the news that XRP/USD broke free from Monday’s low of 0.4452 US dollars through the bearish sentiments that are still strong.
Despite all the top cryptocurrencies being in the red currently, Ripple’s XRP price is up by 0.78% and stands at $0.445 taking the recent 24-hours of trading into account, with its current market value standing at slightly below 18 billion US dollars.
It is expected that XRP prices are going to surge upwards as the news of Ripple partnering with Quidax continues to gain momentum (remember they are going to use xRapid, the product that uses XRP), especially in Africa.
