ethereum logoEthereum is another cryptocurrency just like bitcoin. In fact, Ethereum is the second most popular cryptocurrency right now. The price of Ethereum cannot be predicted as it fluctuates like bitcoin but it is a good investment. This post is about how to buy Ethereum coin in Nigeria.

You can buy Ethereum coin directly from Coinbase but this is not possible for Nigerians; Nigerians are not allowed to buy Bitcoin or Ethereum from Coinbase. If you are a foreigner or you use VPN, you can purchase Ethereum on Coinbase. Ethereum users in Nigeria have to buy bitcoin then convert the bitcoin to Ethereum.

Note: This method works for all countries that cannot buy Ethereum directly on Coinbase or other wallets.

Like I said earlier, you have to purchase bitcoin then convert it to Ethereum. You can buy bitcoin from Luno and then convert it to Ethereum on C-CEX.

After purchasing bitcoin on your favorite bitcoin wallet, you send the bitcoin to your C-CEX bitcoin wallet. If you don’t have a C-CEX account, you can create one by clicking here.

Once the C-CEX account has been created, locate your C-CEX bitcoin wallet address and send the bitcoin equivalent of Ethereum you want to buy. Your C-CEX bitcoin wallet address can be found by following the simple process below;

  • Visit while logged into C-CEX.
  • At the right corner, click on my wallet.C-CEX WALLET
  • Copy the bitcoin deposit address.

Transfer bitcoin to your C-CEX wallet from your other wallet loaded with bitcoin. Now you convert the bitcoin to Ethereum.

This is relatively simple. Follow the steps below to convert Bitcoin to Ethereum on  C-CEX;

  • visit while logged into C-CEX (this is the official C-CEX bitcoin to Ether conversion page).

C-CEX is a good wallet to use but you can also transfer your Ethereum to any Ethereum wallet you prefer e.g Coinbase.
