The Managing Director of PalmPay Nigeria, Chika Nwosu, said, “Our commitment to excellence and financial security remains unwavering as we drive financial inclusion. Despite the growing interest in cryptocurrency, PalmPay does not permit cryptocurrency or virtual asset trading on our platform, and this is in line with the Central Bank of Nigeria regulations to protect the financial ecosystem.
