Binance Launches New Fiat On-Ramp for the South African Rand (ZAR)

Binance has announced the opening of a new fiat on-ramp for the South African Rand (ZAR). Users are now able to deposit Rands (ZAR) via bank transfer (EFT). This provides a new and competitive fiat gateway for South Africa.

After depositing funds to Binance, users will be able to buy and sell crypto with five Rand (ZAR) trading pairs: 

  • BTC/ZAR 
  • BNB/ZAR 
  • ETH/ZAR 
  • USDT/ZAR
  • BUSD/ZAR.

This service will be rolled out in two phases:

  • Phase 1: Deposits and Trade – With immediate effect, Binance users are now able to deposit Rands (ZAR) into their Binance wallet and trade in the five trading pairs above.
  • Phase 2: Withdrawals – From 9 April @6am (UTC+2), Rand (ZAR) fiat withdrawals will be enabled for all Binance users.

KYC (level 2) account verification and fiat deposit/withdrawal limits apply.

Binance’s new fiat on-ramp for the South African Rand comes after Binance first announced in March that they will be launching a Fiat gateway in South Africa.

Binance is also in the final stages of talks to acquire CoinMarketCap. Binance is looking to pay as much as $400 million for the deal.

Binance is taking on established exchanges in South Africa such as Luno, iCE3X and Altcoin Trader. The South African crypto-market is now more competitive, especially with Binance’s entrance into the market.

Binance’s mobile crypto trading app is available on Both Android and iOS:
