Mobile bitcoin wallet Airbitz has announced a partnership with iceCUBED-X, a secure exchange platform that provides buying and selling of bitcoin and litecoin for South African Rand and Nigerian Naira. Users in South Africa will automatically be directed to the iceCUBED-X exchange when they tap the “Buy Bitcoin” button on the Airbitz app.
Part of the Airbitz aim is to support bitcoin adoption in the parts of the world that can benefit the most from censorship-resistent transactions. iceCUBED-X is providing this service by making bitcoin more accessible to Nigerians and South Africans.
Gareth Grobler, CEO of iceCUBED-X, commented: “I have come across enough bitcoin companies, wallets and pretty much anything else you can think of in the bitcoin space, to know that Airbitz is one of the most reputable, ethical, and simply “likeable” companies around. Paul heads up a team of Silicon Valley’s best, which is why I am happy to personally recommend the Airbitz app to all our customers at iceCUBED-X.”
