In an exclusive interview with BlockNewsAfrica, Paul Ezeafulukwe, Advisor at Bitfxt and SIBAN President. He described the addition as a big feat that will help boost the adoption of the project.
Listing on coinmarketcap is indeeed a big feat, it is a step in the right direction to boost user base, expand the market opportunities onboard more users on its platform. Bitfxt has done well for itself, Nigeria and the African blockchain ecosystem. It’s now a herculean task to get any project listed on coinmarketcap due to increased scrutiny and hurdles that projects must scale before being listed and for bitfxt to do so, it is a sign of greater things to come from them.Paul Ezeafulukwe, Advisor at Bitfxt and SIBAN President
