Revix, the crypto company doing business in South Africa, reports that developments in the crypto-market show staggering volumes. The firm clarifies that its funds reached over $2 million by 2020 and multiplied to about $70 million by 2021. It is expected that in 2022 these operations will increase again.

South Africa not only allows Revix to grow its operations but has also lent its support to the VALR Exchange. The company’s CEO, Ehsani Farzam, indicates that its users grew to more than 85,000 people in 2021, and for the quarter of 2022, some 270,000 clients have been reported.

Crypto-adoptions in the country are caused by several factors, starting with the devaluation of the South African Rand and the limits presented by fiat currency. The crypto market offers its investors thousands of opportunities to earn money and make international operations. Mass adoption could also be motivated by the rise of the global market, where today, cryptos are a priority for many national companies.
