New York/Lagos, September 16, 2019 — Dash, the top digital currency for payments and e-commerce, today announced a partnership with Ferrum Network, a high-speed interoperability network for real-world financial applications, to offer Dash payment options to Kudi Exchange customers and merchants, and to host Dash in the Ferrum Network product line.

Dash has a heavy presence in Nigeria, with hundreds of merchants offering it as a payment method. Similarly, Kudi Exchange, the “Coinbase plus Venmo” of Africa, has been aggressively on-boarding Nigerian merchants and customers to its hybrid cryptocurrency exchange and instant payments app.

By offering Dash to Ferrum Network and Kudi Exchange users through the UniFyre Wallet (to be directly connected to Kudi Exchange), customers throughout Africa and around the world will have access to a top digital asset in Dash.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Dash — one of the best and most trusted names in cryptocurrencies for the benefit of our users,” said Naiem Yeganeh, PhD, CEO of Ferrum Network.

From the standpoint of our Kudi Exchange customers in Africa, Dash fits the model of what we wish to offer — a real use case, existing users, and a focus on Africa through Dash Nigeria, said Germaine Ifudu, COO of Kudi Exchange.

“The partnership of Ferrum Network/Kudi Exchange and Dash represents a natural evolution of where we want to take Dash. With this partnership, Dash is now exposed to an entirely new set of users in a high-growth region who can truly benefit from the everything Dash has to offer — a truly decentralized global currency for instant, low-cost, peer-to-peer transactions” said Nathaniel Luz of Dash Nigeria.

“We look forward to working closely with Dash as Ferrum Network expands its product line worldwide. We will be deepening the Ferrum-Dash partnership in the future as we continue to release our products and our mainnet, said Ian Friend, Esq. COO of Ferrum Network.
