Just before Christmas last month, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) removed the restrictions that it placed on cryptocurrency transactions after about two years. As a result, crypto is now open and legal as the CBN has now put in place a framework for how the banking system can be used to facilitate crypto transactions, and this includes factors like proper registration of crypto businesses with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and proper anti-money laundering detection processes among others.

It means that if you buy or sell cryptocurrency for your personal use, you are able to do it freely without the fear of your bank account being shut down by the CBN. And because cryptocurrency trading has become one of the biggest ways to make money online for many people and Nigeria has one of the highest crypto trading volumes globally, it is important to learn how to trade cryptocurrency legally in Nigeria.

Crypto trading involves monitoring the price movements of the cryptocurrency market to make a profit and to begin; you need a crypto wallet and a crypto exchange. It should be noted that the cryptocurrency market is very volatile, and price of tokens can rise and fall in seconds making it easy to lose money.
