Zypto Makes Crypto More Accessible for Africans


The recently launched Zypto App makes crypto more accessible than ever, enabling Africans from across the continent to participate in the global marketplace with just a few clicks on their smartphones.

Read on to learn more about Zypto and what it can offer Africans.

What is Zypto?

Zypto is a European cryptocurrency company that provides an entire cryptocurrency ecosystem—from buying and selling crypto to seamless payments using virtual crypto cards, a virtual gift card marketplace, and more—centered around its newly released all-in-one crypto app.

What is the Zypto Mobile App?

The Zypto App, available for Android and iOS, is a feature-rich crypto wallet and payments app that enables you to:

  • Manage thousands of digital currencies and tokens across multiple blockchains in one wallet;
  • Buy crypto with 19+ fiat-to-crypto onramps and over 130 payment methods globally;
  • Seamlessly swap tokens from multi-chains directly within the app;
  • Purchase virtual crypto cards that allow you to spend crypto online wherever card payments are accepted;
  • Buy gift cards with cryptocurrency on the Zypto virtual gift card marketplace;
  • Earn rewards paid in ZYPs in the Rewards Hub.

How Can Africans Benefit from Zypto?

While many crypto apps primarily target customers in the West, Zypto is taking a global approach.

The company wants to make crypto easy for everyone, not just people in the United States.

First and foremost, you can purchase Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), and a long list of other digital assets using a wide range of payment methods in over 190 countries, thanks to Zypto’s integration with Onramper. As a result, you should be able to find a suitable payment method that works for you, regardless of where on the continent you are located.

What’s perhaps even more exciting for Africans, especially freelancers and remote workers who receive payments in cryptocurrency, is Zypto’s virtual gift card marketplace, where you can buy a wide range of gift cards with digital currency. The marketplace enables you to shop at a variety of retailers with crypto by purchasing gift cards, which makes living on crypto much easier.

Zypto’s virtual crypto cards, which can be purchased directly within the app, also make spending digital currency easier. You can make purchases anywhere where card payments are accepted, which means you can essentially spend your bitcoin anywhere online.

You can also use the Zypto app to send and receive crypto remittances in a large number of different cryptocurrencies, including stablecoins. So, whether you are sending or receiving cross-border payments, you can use the Zypto app as your wallet to manage your transactions.

Crypto Adoption is Growing in Africa

The adoption of bitcoin, stablecoins, and other cryptocurrencies has been steadily on the rise in the past few years as more and more Africans – especially Gen-Z and Millennials – are looking towards alternative currency solutions rather than their own fiat currencies.

With inflation and weakening currencies causing grief in numerous African countries, holding money in bitcoin or stablecoins has become much more appealing. That’s where crypto wallet apps like Zypto come in handy, allowing you to seamlessly manage all your cryptocurrencies in one place.
