DASH Partners with AnkerPay

AnkerPay in South Africa has rolled out ATMs in the country as well as payment processing services and machines to offer merchants and users a state of the art user experience.

Phoenix — May 4, 2020 —​ ​Dash​, the top digital currency for payments and e-commerce, announced it has partnered with AnkerPay, a South African based cryptocurrency payments and ATM company. With a growing network of ATMs, PoS systems, online payments processing, and a user-friendly wallet that connects with their entire ecosystem, AnkerPay provides the Dash network with the full ecosystem ready to implement across Sub-Saharan Africa.

AnkerPay has also made the strategic decision to integrate InstantSend, one of Dash’s key features, which completes all transactions on the network within two seconds, including settlement, which means the funds can be respent immediately. This will enhance the user experience when purchasing goods or services. Transactions are converted into local national currency giving the merchant the ability to continue to accept Dash payments without the risk of volatility.

Users in South Africa can now purchase or sell Dash through their ATMs or wallets and spend it at participating merchants in the country. Users can also purchase goods and services online with Dash. The largest use case the partners will be developing together are remittances to South Africa (and other regional markets) from the U.K. and Europe. Remittances in the continent currently face high-fees and can take several days depending on the method of transfer. With

Dash’s InstantSend and a number of different ways to cash-out, a user can receive their Dash and convert it into the local currency in the method they prefer. As the country has a healthy mix of digital and cash payments, AnkerPay’s solution shows significant promise to grow both in the country and across the continent.

Many have pointed to markets in Sub-Saharan Africa, as having many clear use cases and advantages for cryptocurrency to solve inefficiencies and lower costs around remittances and payments. However, few major cryptocurrency projects have worked on adoption there due to a number of reasons, including the difficulties in navigating the complexities within the continent. Dash’s DAO model enables local teams to support the network, which enables a global-local approach in market entry and growth. Today, Dash has earned a reputation for the success it has seen in Venezuela as it is the most used cryptocurrency for payments. Similarly, Dash Core Group and AnkerPay will be working with Dash Nigeria, the largest community-run organization in Sub Saharan Africa to help grow merchant and user adoption of AnkerPay and Dash across South Africa initially, then Western Africa.

“This is a big step for Dash,” said Ryan Taylor, CEO of Dash Core Group. “The partnership with AnkerPay provides Dash a ready-to-go scaleable ecosystem to expand our presence in South Africa and soon after, the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa. Ankerpay is providing its users with the best possible Dash experience, using InstantSend to quickly complete purchases. Their solution makes it easy for merchants to accept Dash while reserving the option to receive fiat. Dash has thrived in complex markets where our technology and strategies help address payments and remittance issues.”

“This is an important leap for Dash users in South Africa and an even more substantial step for regular people,” Les Vorster said. “Not only will people be able to pay for goods and services but they’ll have access to purchasing Dash directly, circumventing the need for traditional banking infrastructure, a game-changer for the millions of marginalized unbanked. Something unimaginable not too long ago,” Les added.

verify remitano accounts

The Remitano ecosystem is a community built on trust, this is why every Remitano user must complete their KYC to gain full access to the entire features of Remitano.

Remitano LogoOver time, we realized that a lot of our Nigerian users who have migrated and now live in South Africa are finding it difficult to verify their accounts due to the lack of proper South African documents. As a result of our pledge on continuous improvement, we are now allowing Nigerian traders in South Africa to verify their Remitano accounts using their Nigerian identification documents.

South Africa based Nigerians can now use their Nigerian government-issued National Identity card, Driver’s license, international passport, or Voters card to verify their Remitano account despite they no longer live in Nigeria.

What Exactly is KYC and Why Do You Need to Complete It?

KYC is an acronym for “Know Your Customer.” It is a means for Remitano to verify its users by requesting and verifying their personal details.

There are five levels of KYC in order to enjoy the highest trading experience on Remitano. The level of KYC you complete will determine your daily deposit and withdrawal limits.

Level one verification requires phone number verification only. This allows users to buy up to $1000 worth of cryptocurrency. However, you would not have access to your Remitano fiat wallet.

Level two verification involves document verification. It involves the confirmation of your identity by providing your government-issued ID card. This will help remitano verify the personal details and address you provided during registration. Level two users can buy cryptocurrencies worth $100,000 per day with a daily withdrawal limit of $1000.

Level three verification requires your bank verification. You need to verify your bank detail to make fiat deposits and withdrawals. Level three increases your buying limit to $200,000 per day and withdrawal limit to $2,500 per day.

Level four and five KYC are for long term traders, and you will need to complete the first three levels. Learn how to complete level 4 and 5 KYC.
