With this announcement, Quidax becomes the first fully African owned crypto exchange to be listed on CoinMarketCap. This listing represents a milestone for crypto in Africa.
CoinMarketCap is one of the most trusted sources of cryptocurrencies. CMC as it is often called is commonly cited by CNBC, Bloomberg, and other major news outlets. Its data is also used by the U.S. government and several other governments.

Quidax is an African-founded cryptocurrency exchange that makes it easy for anyone to buy, sell, store, and transfer cryptocurrencies. In January Quidax announced a brand refresh along with the launch of a simpler and easier to use crypto app available on both the play store and app store. Since its launch in 2018, the exchange has achieved significant milestones including over $3.2 billion in transactions in less than 3 years of operation.
