Who We Are

We are a global payment company that makes it easy to send and receive money internationally.

What do we do

We work with payment partners around the world to enable fast, easy and affordable transactions.

Our Story

At the heart of all we do is the belief that sending money overseas should be as easy as sending a text message.

In the beginning, Afriex was a bitcoin exchange. After noticing that many of our customers were using bitcoin to send money to other people (instead of buying and holding), we decided to just directly solve the pain point by building a remittance platform powered by blockchain technology.

Our long term goal is to build a truly global bank that enables people to send any currency to anyone anywhere both in fiat and crypto.

Our Team

We are building a family of Afriex users who are working towards creating wealth and therefore, a better standard of living across the globe. Very soon, we will be introducing a range of new currencies to the app thus, making sending money around the world even easier!

Obirije John
Co-founder

“Afriex was born because we experienced the pain of sending money from the US to Nigeria. I previously worked with a startup company that tried solving a similar problem, we didn’t succeed, but this time it is my personal mission to make Afriex work for all.
