“We are delighted to bring South Africans the largest crypto-offering the country has ever seen in collaboration with Bittrex, one of the most advanced, secure and compliant platforms worldwide,” said Farzam Ehsani, VALR CEO. “Our partnership gives our customers direct access to international liquidity, globally competitive prices and leading security practices. We look forward to advancing the crypto industry in South Africa and beyond.”

Powered by Bittrex technology, VALR will provide South African customers with a reliable, fast and secure trading option that will also give them access to some of the world’s most innovative blockchain projects.

Bittrex CEO Bill Shihara said, “We will continue to explore partnerships like this one that not only support the blockchain industry, but also incubate innovative projects using this emerging technology, as we further expand our global footprint.”
