Forex Varsity, the leading forex trading educator in Africa, has partnered with Xago to bring credible and compliant crypto trading to thousands of their members and associates across the continent.

Xago offers Forex Varsity’s clients innovative money movement into or out of crypto with our custom-built Xago Xchange. This trading platform enables individuals to buy, trade, send and receive ZAR/XRP cryptocurrency in less than 4 seconds.

Garth East, Group Managing Director of Forex Varsity, is well-known for being discerning in his choice of partners and states, “we’ve been watching the cryptocurrency industry closely for around 10 years, and have not felt comfortable with endorsing a crypto trading partner, until now.  We have specifically chosen Xago as they are a highly credible South African fintech that focuses on an all-inclusive approach to moving money and offer our clients the best support to enable trading.  Importantly, they have been accepted to test specific regulatory treatment of crypto assets and their investors and strategic partners align perfectly with our core vision to succeed with integrity.”

Kevin Lewis, Chief Growth Officer at Xago, whom manages the relationship with Forex Varsity, is very pleased to announce the news and comments, “our partnership is a perfect way to introduce cryptocurrency trading to individuals whom already have a vested interest in trading foreign exchange. Our Xchange minimises the risk of currency exchange fluctuations for the individual (and businesses) due to the settlement time of 3.8 seconds on average, all the while knowing they are trading on a secure, traceable, compliant and effective exchange.”

Forex Varsity clients are already registering with Xago via a specifically designed personalised user journey and have started their new crypto trading careers.
