Forex is an absolutely unique phenomenon ever generated by the human mind. It is never static and is always developing to keep pace with the realities of modern life. It sometimes anticipates very important future events and spurs innovation and advanced technological solutions into existence.

There have recently been such crucial changes in the Forex market recently — the traders’ community has been introduced to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies trading. 

E-Currency Trading in Nigeria: Bitcoin Rules the Cryptomarket

Cryptocurrency trading is a modern trend in the foreign exchange market in Nigeria. Its concept implies the use of digital or virtual money as a trading tool, which is not only convenient but fits perfectly well in today’s picture of the Forex trading environment.

Bitcoin and any other cryptocurrency is obtained by a method known as ‘mining’ – so-called due to the use of encryption techniques referred to as cryptography. These techniques increase the safety of transactional processes and lower the risk of counterfeiting.

At present, there are six types of e-money that are used in digital currency trading:

  • Bitcoin
  • Peercoin
  • Litecoin
  • Namecoin
  • Ethereum
  • Dash

Each cryptocurrency has very distinct features, but all of them operate on common principles. Bitcoin is, by far, the most popular. 

What is the reason for the growing popularity of virtual currency trading?


Virtual currency trading is gaining momentum among Forex traders due to a number of reasons:

  1. Decentralized – no central bank or any other authority may affect the pricing processes; cryptocurrency trading is absolutely transparent and the e-currency is generated and circulated within an open system.
  2. Secure –cryptography protects virtual currency trading, provides a high level of safety and a low chance for fraud.
  3. Simple and easy – cryptocurrency trading is available to everybody worldwide. All you need is a computer or a smartphone to carry out low-cost transactions day and night.
  4. Digital origin – all of the cryptocurrencies are obtained via the mining process.
