As part of activities to grow its base in the Middle East, the leading global peer to peer platform, Paxful has recently launched a Dubai office with a team led by Shantnoo Saxena who has 15 years experience in the payments and crypto space to drive knowledge, platform growth and integration in the region.
The team hosted its first community event on the 5th of May at the beautiful ROVE Hotel, Downtown, Dubai with a very good turn out
Responding to a tweet about the reason for opening in the UAE, CEO of Paxful, Ray Youssef had this to say; “The UAE is a huge hub of business that bridges Asia, Africa, the Indian sub continent and Europe together. Paxful is dedicated to education and foundational building and the journey has just begun”.
Working with communities in the UAE
One of the strategies the Paxful team has identified to accelerate integration in the UAE is to work directly with communities to reach their members providing knowledge and other tools. One of such communities is the Nigerians in Dubai community run by Ifeanyi Abraham who also runs FindBlackExperts.com, a platform to connect black people whether of African, American, British, Emirati or Asian origin to opportunities in the middle east and around the world supporting diversity and inclusion. Ifeanyi is an entrepreneur, event host, speaker and writer, contributing to CNN, HuffingtonPost, Techmoran and other platforms.. Globally Nigeria is one of Paxful’s biggest market so finding a way to tap directly into the Nigerian market and the many use cases Paxful provides was an obvious strategy for the UAE.
Starting from the 31st of May, 2021, Paxful will be hosting an event in collaboration with NigeriansInDubai and FindBlackExperts to drive knowledge about cryptocurrency and the benefits of using the Paxful platform. The events will be a physical and virtual talk series featuring everyday investors, experts and practitioners sharing their stories under the theme “Investing In Crypto: Real Stories With Paxful”. The event anchor will be Ifeanyi Abraham and the first guest will be Gaius Chibueze popularly known as Bitcoin Chief, an African Pioneer Bitcoin Investor since 2011. In 2018, he published his first book “How bitcoin changed my life”. He has subsequently published 3 others books on Cryptocurrency trading and Business Administration. He was ranked among the top cryptocurrency traders in 2019.
