He further stated that the two major factors responsible for the success so far is the simplicity of the platform, where newbies who have zero experience in cryptocurrency trading can easily Buy and Sell cryptocurrency in less than a minute and also a 24/7 customer support team via live chat always ready to assist users and ensure a super convenient user experience.

He also explained other key features which distinguish the platform from existing product in the Nigeria crypto space, stating that Skye Wallet users can transfer cryptocurrency using Emails and Phone numbers at zero network fee/charge, which is the first of its kind in the cryptocurrency space.

Interestingly, the co-founder Bamidele Ajayi revealed the platform was not only built to deliver convenient and hassle-free cryptocurrency trading service to users but also to help as many people as possible create a lifetime Passive Income channel through the referral program, by inviting friends/family to join Skye Wallet using their special referral code and earn 0.5% on the fees for every transaction they make for life.

With the successful completion of this funding series, analysts and industry enthusiasts believe there is much more to be expected from this platform as far as cryptocurrency trading in Nigeria and Africa at large is concerned.
