Strike CEO Jack Mallers Expands Bitcoin Services into African Markets

Jack Mallers, the CEO of Strike, has made a significant announcement regarding the expansion of Strike’s suite of Bitcoin services into several African markets. The new initiative, known as Strike Africa, will now be available in Gabon, Ivory Coast, Malawi, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, and Zambia, with plans for further expansion in the future.

By offering a comprehensive range of Bitcoin and Lightning services, including local fiat on and off-ramps, the ability to buy and sell Bitcoin and USDT, cross-border payments, and more, Strike Africa aims to empower individuals and businesses with fast, secure, and cost-effective financial solutions.

Jack Mallers emphasized the importance of Bitcoin as a digital reserve asset and hedge against inflation in African countries experiencing economic turmoil. He highlighted the significant impact that Strike’s services can have in providing individuals with the tools to protect their property rights and preserve wealth.

Furthermore, Strike Africa will enable businesses to open accounts and access a range of services tailored to their needs. The availability of Strike’s API hopes to empower developers to build innovative Bitcoin and payment tools for customers in Africa and beyond.

In addition, Strike Private will provide eligible clients with personalized services, including custom pricing, Bitcoin education, market analysis, and more. This tailored approach is aimed at supporting clients on their Bitcoin journey and providing them with expert guidance and assistance.

Overall, the expansion of Strike’s services into Africa represents a significant step towards providing individuals and businesses in the region with access to cutting-edge financial solutions. With plans for further expansion throughout 2024, Strike Africa is poised to make a lasting impact on the financial landscape of the continent.
