10 Reasons Why Pesamill Is Your Exchange of Choice
East Africans and Kenyans are credited as early and fast adopters of new technology such as mobile money. Now, they too seem pretty excited by one of the hottest technologies in the past 3 years, cryptocurrency technology.
Unfortunately, access to cryptocurrencies from Kenya and Uganda and Tanzania has been limited. No one has built an online exchange service for us, one that is built for our needs.
Well, that was true until Pesamill Africa launched their services a few weeks ago to fill this void.
If you have been thinking about cryptocurrency and struggling with access to cryptocurrency from your home country, here are 9 reasons why Pesamill Africa is the best exchange for you.
- An African Exchange, Built by Africans for Africans
Brian Ngugi, a Kenyan lawyer by profession, noticed that East Africans were paying up to 40% higher prices for Bitcoin than everyone else in the world. He decided to do something about it, by building a local cryptocurrency exchange with the help of a team of young talented Africans.
2. Fair Pricing Policy
The prices of cryptocurrencies on Pesamill are marked to market. This means the price of Bitcoin or Ethereum on Pesamill is the same as any exchange around the world.
