Paxful is giving away 4 million naira in BTC as part of measures to help Nigerian traders as the naira falls.
Nigeria remains the biggest P2P market in the world, leading trading volumes on platforms including Paxful. Part of the reasons people are opting for bitcoin is the naira falling in value against the US dollar.
The Nigerian naira has had a rough year so far, causing more people to look for alternative ways to store their value. The naira has seen a decline in the last few weeks, with some local financial sites reporting high exchange rates on the black market.
As part of its plans to ease the effects of the depreciating value of the naira, Paxful is running a trading competition for Nigerians.
