How to Safely Buy, Sell Crypto’s in Nigeria, Withdraw in Naira to Your Bank Account

February 5th is a day cryptocurrency traders in Nigeria will never forget because it changes a lot of things. One year after, the ban is still in place and some Nigerians appears to have moved on.

February 5th 2021, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) released a circular, effectively banning cryptocurrency trading in Nigeria and ending the relationship that existed between Nigerian crypto exchanges and banks in the country.

The ban has forced many Nigerians to hold their cryptocurrencies, and those who want to buy are currently finding it difficult to buy. Some exchangers in Nigeria disabled withdrawals, while some have found a way to move on with P2P.

The good news is that with Binance exchange, you can safely any cryptocurrency of your choice, sell and withdraw directly to your bank account without any hassle. Now that the crypto market is currently experiencing a dip, its the best time to buy.

But let me quickly show you how to buy, sell crypto’s and withdraw directly to your bank account safely

Binance P2P:

With Binance P2P trading, you can buy, sell cryptocurrencies and withdraw to your bank account. Binance P2P is a peer-to-peer trading market where you can safely trade crypto in exchange for your local currency. Binance P2P’s escrow service safeguards every transaction, giving traders peace of mind. 

How it Works

Once the buyer places an order, the seller’s cryptocurrency will automatically be transferred from the seller’s wallet to the temporary deposit with Binance P2P’s escrow service. The cryptocurrencies will be held in the deposit guarantee until the transaction is successfully completed by both parties.

Perform all the necessary identity verification and then proceeds.

Step 1: Place your order 

Place an order to buy or sell cryptocurrency. The crypto will be held by Binance P2P temporarily until the operation is successfully completed.

Step 2: Start a conversation 

Start a conversation with the seller or buyer. When you are trading with a counterpart that you do not know, we recommend that you use the chat to communicate with him/her. The chat history will be essential if there is a dispute with your counterpart and you make an appeal. 

Step 3: Make the payment or release the cryptocurrencies

If you are a buyer, make the payment and notify the seller that you completed the payment. Click the “Confirm” button to notify the seller that you made the payment. If you are a seller, wait for the buyer’s payment confirmation before releasing the crypto.

Step 2. After selecting a suitable offer, it’s time to place your withdrawal order. Enter the amount you want to withdraw to your bank account, then tap “Sell NGN”

Step 3. Wait for payment from the buyer. Please note that your NGN balance is frozen for the duration of the transaction, on the same principle as transactions with cryptocurrencies (BTC, USDT, etc.)

Step 4. After the buyer completes the payment and marks the order as paid, the “Confirm transfer” button will become active. Please be sure to check your Bank Account and make sure the buyer has made payment. If the payment is received, confirm the transfer and complete the transaction.


Another way to buy and withdraw cryptocurrency is through skrill. It allows you to buy cryptocurrencies with ease. 

Just open a Skrill account for free, link your debit card and start buying. You can find out an easy guide here on how to go about it.

But your best shot without any restriction is P2P.
