Paxful expands its payment options giving more Africans access to quality financial services
December 8, 2020, Lagos, Nigeria – As part of continuous efforts to deliver a seamless user experience, Paxful, a global peer-to-peer crypto marketplace, has introduced Carbon as one of the payment methods to its platform. The addition will enable users to apply for loans, invest, view credit reports, and track expenses.
The partnership will allow Paxful users on the Carbon platform to make payments within the app, while Carbon customers can now dive into the cryptocurrency space and buy, sell, invest digital assets, or hedge their funds against inflation via the crypto on-ramp. Paxful boasts over 300 payment options on the platform, and Carbon becomes a welcome addition that will help more users in Nigeria and Kenya on board the crypto train.
“The addition of Carbon to the Paxful platform is truly exciting as we strive to provide fair financial opportunities for everyone. We keep expanding our list of payment methods to give Africans better access to financial services, and adding Carbon is an important step. Our users now have access to quick credit with low interest rates without the need for guarantors or collateral. The platform also provides high yield investment opportunities, plus a fee-free and interest-earning wallet,” said Ray Youssef, CEO, and co-founder of Paxful.
