New crypto and fiat payments app backed by Binance launches in Nigeria

A new payment app for crypto and fiat payments has been launched in Nigeria.

Called Bundle, the app is an African-focused social payments app for cash and cryptocurrencies and is backed by Binance, Finextra reported.

It is founded by Yele Bademosi, former director at Binance labs. Bundle allows users to request, send, and receive cash or cryptocurrencies from their peers. They can also buy, sell and store digital currencies as well as deposit and withdraw cryptocurrencies and local fiat currencies.

At present, the app supports Binance Coin (BNB), Bitcoin (BTC), and Ethereum (ETH). For local currencies, it only supports Nigeria Naira (NGN), but more will be added in the coming weeks.

The transactions can be processed via various payment channels including cards, bank transfer, Mobile Money, and Bundle’s Smart Wallet.

About 40% of banked Africans prefer digital channels for their banking transactions. Also, the continent has the largest youngest population in the world and the new app aims to serve them because they are digitally savvy and can lead Africa to a new and promising digital economy.

“We built Bundle with the digitally native African user in mind. They are social, online, and connected across geographical boundaries. They prefer their financial services delivered digitally via mobile apps as opposed to visiting brick and mortar bank branches,” Bademosi said.

“We built Bundle as a mobile wallet that supports cash and crypto, and makes using crypto feel like just another digital financial transaction done on a mobile app like Venmo.”

Bundle’s product vision is to evolve in a super-app with a native digital wallet that supports crypto and cash. The team behind the app wants it to become a tech essential for Africans.

“We believe Africa has several characteristics that make it a prime geographical location for the realization of the full potential of digital currencies, blockchain, and its applications. Currently, only 1.4 million people out of 1.2 billion people in Africa use crypto today. This is a worthwhile mission because making the blockchain ecosystem more accessible unlocks economic opportunity on and for the continent,” says Bundle Chief Technical Officer, Taiwo Orilogbon.

Bundle initially launched with zero fees. However, KYC verification and fiat deposit and withdrawal limits apply. Bundle is already available on Android. However, iOS users have to wait for it in the coming weeks.

I think this is a good idea. The blockchain ecosystem needs to be wider to create more opportunities. Something like is what comes to my mind in this topic. You can create your won token there, which is amazing because it gives you a great starting point for your project.

I have been at my job for 8 years and was sacked in March, the company I used to work with told me they could not afford to pay me anymore due to the pandemic. I was really devastated and went into depression, so one of my best friends called to check up on me on this faithful night and told me not to worry about anything. Then he introduced me to Bitcoin investment. He gave me the contact of [ [email protected] dot COM ] and I emailed them and started investing with just $1k and after about a week I had made $25k in profits. Investing in bitcoin can seem really complicated, but it is much easier when you work with an expert like this team. You can reach them for  bitcoin trading/ mining /investment or even retrieval of lost/stolen bitcoin and wallets. You can thank me later.

Bastards is being way to polite. I also was told by all my friends and family NOT to do this But I was a DUMB ASS and did it anyone. You know I am always right (NOT). They got 50k out of my pocket and when the account was over 115k.My account went down 111k in less than 30 minutes leaving $8,400. They knew this was my retirement money and didn’t give a damn. I guess they were done with me then because no one would take my calls.If it sounds to good to be true, it is. Luckily for me I was introduced to LukeReynold at protonmail cot ch he helped me get all of my funds back.
