Paxful has launched a new Mobile Wallet App to ease access to bitcoin in Kenya

Paxful has launched a mobile wallet app that will enable bitcoin transactions to be conducted with ease.

The mobile app, which is the first of its kind in the peer-to-peer bitcoin trading space, will allow users to conveniently send and receive bitcoin via their own private Paxful wallets. This effectively brings global commerce closer to users by empowering them to make and receive local and global payments from the comfort of the app. Through the app, users get updated bitcoin conversion rates, track their trading history, know the current status of their transactions in real-time, among other features. The app also enables users to purchase bitcoins using over300 payment methods available in the Paxful platform.

Ray Youssef, CEO, and Co-founder of Paxful said: “We are thrilled to provide a mobile platform that will give more people access to bitcoin and allow users to conveniently access their wallets on the move. This is in line with our commitment to helping the unbanked and underbanked gain financial freedom.”

Interest in bitcoin has steadily risen across the African continent and especially in Kenya which is ranked among the top 5 countries with the highest number of Paxful users. In September 2019, Paxful trade volumes in Kenya shillings (KES) topped out at 28 million KES in one week as seen on the Coin Dance chart.

Many bitcoin users live in countries with limited financial solutions. The Paxful Mobile Wallet App has been designed with lower-end devices in mind that do not compromise on security or features.

Pxful is a leading global peer-to-peer bitcoin marketplace. It recently scaled its operations to include Kenya and the broader East African region,

The Paxful Mobile Wallet is available on both iOS and Android devices.
