What does the general manager say? . Marius Reitz, the company’s general manager for Africa, said:

“It is more complex than launching in an individual market because of the different states and different regulations within each of these states, so there’s lots of moving parts. But it is a company focus for us for 2022.”

What is known about the platform? Luno was founded in 2013 and has 9 million users. Digital Currency Group was the first investor in Luno and acquired it fully in 2020. A year later, the platform raised $700 million in a deal led by SoftBank Group Corp. The company currently trades Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple. Reitz expects to add new assets soon, chosen from among the world’s ten most liquid cryptocurrencies.
