Binance disables P2P function amid clampdown from Nigerian authorities

Amid President Bola Tinubu’s government’s clampdown on cryptocurrency to save the battered naira, the world’s biggest cryptocurrency trading platform, Binance, has disabled its peer-to-peer function for Nigerian users.

With the disabling of the P2P function for Nigerian users, Nigerians might no longer trade on Binance.

People Gazette also noticed that the Nigerian currency was unavailable on Binance on Wednesday.

These follow Olayemi Cardoso, Central Bank of Nigeria governor, saying over $26 billion passed through Binance in the past year on Tuesday at the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting in Abuja.

Last week, Binance confirmed it was working with Tinubu-led to block dollar-naira trading on the platform.

The cryptocurrency platform also confirmed that its website had been blocked, noting that its app was still functioning for users to access the platform.

In the past week, federal authorities clamped down on cryptocurrency platforms while raiding bureaux de change nationwide to stabilise the free-falling naira.
