Users of Binance can now deposit and withdraw money using the South African Rand (ZAR).

The South African Rand (ZAR) can now be deposited into and withdrawn from Binance wallets, according to the cryptocurrency exchange that processes the most trades globally, Binance.

This, according to Binance, is intended to enhance cryptocurrency adoption and accessibility in the area.

According to Binance, the service will be introduced in two stages. Users of Binance can deposit ZAR into their wallets and exchange it for bitcoin (BTC), binance USD (BUSD), ethereum (ETH), tether (USDT), and binance coin as of today, when Phase 1 went live with immediate effect (BNB)

Phase 2 will begin on August 25 at 8:00 a.m. UTC and will enable ZAR fiat withdrawals for all Binance users.

MyBroadband claims that the fiat gateway will allow South African users to use Stitch, a South African financial API infrastructure firm, to make rapid EFT deposits for a 1% service charge. The business hopes to shortly include Kenya, Ghana, and Egypt after expanding to Nigeria near the end of 2021.

Hannes Wassels, the recently recruited Binance country manager for South Africa, commented on the service’s introduction by saying that the business is thrilled to take this step in facilitating South Africans’ access to digital assets. He continued by saying that Binance’s action is consistent with its mission to promote financial accessibility and accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrencies.

The top 5 banks in South Africa, according to Binance, are Absa, Capitec, FNB, Nedbank, and Standard Bank.

The country’s central bank recently issued a guideline note recommending banks to desist from refusing to do business with providers of crypto assets, which has contributed to the positive week for the industry.
