Blockstale BTM, the company that installed the ATM at Dazey Lounge and Bar in Lagos, is planning to expand more with over 30 ATMs terminals across Nigeria.

Daniel Adekunle, the founder and chief executive of the company said,

“Despite all the legal uncertainties about cryptocurrencies in Nigeria, Nigerians happen to be the highest crypto traders in Africa.”

The company is developing these ATMs in partnership with a Shenzhen, China-based technology firm.

At the moment, South Africa is home to seven crypto ATMs, Ghana has two, while Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Djibouti and Botswana each have a single terminal. With a Bitcoin ATM in Nigeria, the crypto community can expect more developments and widespread adoption in the future.

However, the number of Nigerians on LocalBitcoins has dropped by about 50% since the peer to peer platform strengthened it’s know your customer requirements around September 2019.

Nigeria also presently tops Google searches for ‘Bitcoin’, driving nearly twice the traffic as the second-ranked country, Austria, according to Google Trends.
