SPENN services integrate with cryptocurrency platform Yellow Card in Rwanda
SPENN Rwanda Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of SPENN Technology A/S, has entered into an agreement with Yellow Card Rwanda Limited for SPENN services to be made available for all Yellow Card users in Rwanda.
Company Announcement No. 70
Yellow Card is a US-based cryptocurrency trading company with operations in several African markets including Rwanda and Zambia, which are SPENN strongholds. A similar agreement between SPENN and Yellow Card for Zambia was reached on 5 October 2021 (Company Announcement No. 63).
“Performance in Zambia is exceeding expectations, and we are delighted to expand this business model to Rwanda. Increased penetration in the Rwandan market is a strategic goal for SPENN Technology. By allowing SPENN to offer services to Yellow Card users, we greatly improve the distribution of SPENN in Rwanda. The partnership also allows SPENN users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies via the Yellow Card platform,” says Jens Glaso, CEO of SPENN Technology A/S.
Yellow Card brands itself as the easiest way to buy and sell Bitcoin, Ethereum and Tether instantly at the best rates with zero fees. Yellow Card users can buy and sell crypto online with bank transfer, mobile money, and cash. With SPENN services integrated, SPENN will serve as a cash-on/cash-off ramp to Yellow Card.
“By offering our users the ability to have an interest-bearing savings account, as well as to borrow against their savings, SPENN’s unique position in Rwanda makes partnering with Yellow Card a logical choice,” says Glaso.
FASTEST GROWING CRYPTO REGION
According to a recent Chainalysis report, Africa has seen a 1200 per cent increase in crypto adoption in the last year, making the continent the fastest growing region for crypto in the world.
“Our research has shown that SPENN Rwandans users want the ability to buy and sell cryptocurrencies. With the success we have had in our other African markets, we are excited to introduce the ability for SPENN users to pay in Yellow Card,” says Glaso.
By holding crypto this allows SPENN users to send remittances via the Yellow Card platform, and it protects the value of their wealth against currency devaluation in many African countries.
