BDC Operators Attribute Naira’s Depreciation Against Dollar to Cryptocurrency Platforms

The Association of Bureau De Change Operators of Nigeria (ABCON) has pointed fingers at peer-to-peer cryptocurrency platforms like Binance for the recent decline of the Naira against the Dollar in the foreign exchange market.

Aminu Gwadabe, the National President of ABCON, made this assertion during an interview with NAN on Wednesday, shedding light on the ongoing situation.


Gwadabe emphasized that as long as platforms such as Binance remain profitable, the depreciation trend of the Naira will persist.

He highlighted that the recent downturn in the Naira’s value has raised concerns among BDC operators.

“I am pleased that both the authorities and BDC operators have identified the peer-to-peer (P2P) platform,” Gwadabe remarked.


He elaborated on the P2P platform, likening it to Binance, where speculators utilize the Dollar to purchase USDT, a stablecoin pegged at a one-to-one ratio with the Dollar.

“As long as Binance and similar platforms continue to thrive, the Naira will experience further depreciation,” Gwadabe expressed.

He also noted the prevalence of numerous such platforms within the system, highlighting their online nature with no registration or restrictions in place.


The Naira’s recent decline against the Dollar in the foreign exchange market occurred despite the Central Bank of Nigeria’s provision of an additional $10,000 to eligible BDC operators on Tuesday.

Furthermore, the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has resumed its crackdown on Binance and other cryptocurrency platforms in a bid to safeguard the Naira in the FX market.

The anti-graft agency had previously arraigned Binance and two of its executives before an Abuja High Court over allegations of fraud and currency manipulation.
