Lagos — August 19, 2020 — Dash , the top digital currency for payments and e-commerce,
announced it has partnered with Coinprofile, a Nigerian based cryptocurrency payments
company, with a user-friendly platform that allows merchants and normal users to do direct
crypto to fiat conversions.

Coinprofile adding Dash to its platform, gives users access to Dash features that allow
transactions to take place instantly with zero fees. This will enhance the user experience when
purchasing goods and 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 can now convert their Dash into Naira without having to pass through exchanges. Users
can also purchase goods and services online with Dash on platforms that accept bank deposits.

The largest use case is remittances to Nigeria (and other regional markets) from anywhere in the
world. Remittances in the continent currently face high-fees and can take several days depending
on the method of transfer. Existing fintech platforms charge an average of 15% or more.

Coinprofile integrated Dash’s InstantSend feature which makes it possible for transactions to be
received in a second, an obvious edge over bitcoin transactions

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
several 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.

“This is an amazing one for Dash,” said Nathaniel Luz, Lead of Dash Nigeria. “The partnership
with Coinprofile provides Dash users with the ability to live 100% with a ready-to-go scaleable
ecosystem to expand our presence in Nigeria and soon after, the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa.
Coinprofile 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.”

“We added Dash because of the speed and 0 transaction fees. These two features of Dash are
essential to why we started Coinprofile – To remove high remittance fees and make transactions
lighting fast. So adding Dash was a no brainer for us.

With Dash, we are scaling our platform to thousands of Dash users around the world, who can now send money back home and receive payments with a fast, and easy to use UX. UX that’s hard to find in the crypto space” said Bashir Aminu, founder of Coinprofile as to their reasons for adding Dash.
