This month, we joined forces with eZaga, a South African digital banking and authorized financial services provider, aiming to boost financial inclusion in Africa. This fruitful partnership resulted in the creation of DoshFX, a secure and user-friendly solution for buying and storing cryptocurrencies.
As a centralized crypto exchange, DoshFX comes with multiple benefits for both DIFX and Ezaga users. To introduce our users to DoshFX and how they can benefit from it, we hosted an AMA with their team on our Telegram channel on Friday (November 25).
The DoshFX team discussed the project, its goals, and future plans. They also took some questions from the DIFX community regarding DoshFX’s long-term plans and its privacy and security procedures.
Here’s a quick recap of the AMA:
Q: It is great to have you here DoshFX! Would love to have you introduce yourself and the Project!
We are a blockchain-based African fintech that allows our users to invest in digital assets. What is truly special is the ability to invest using your eZaga bank account, debit, or credit card.
Q: Could you tell us more about your team and what their blockchain background is?
DoshFX was founded by Jeetu Kataria, CEO of DIFX, and Saud Ally, Group CEO of eZaga Holdings. Together, they bring combined experience in trading and investment banking that spans well over two decades. Saud has worked for one of the largest Banks in Africa as an actuary. This sparked his passion for providing accessible financial services to the most vulnerable persons in Africa. Mr. Jeetu has managed family investment portfolios where he gained expertise in digital asset management.
DoshFX’s Journey So Far and Its Future Plans
Q: The past few months have been a fascinating time for DoshFX! Could you give us a brief update?
We announced the deployment of our exchange in Africa, an exciting collaboration between two fast-growing Fintechs: DIFX and eZaga Holdings. This unprecedented collaboration brings together the convenience of digital banking with the security and transparency of blockchain.
Q: The project certainly has a great future! What are your team’s next plans, what can the community look forward to on your current roadmap?
There is a lot to look forward to. We plan on introducing new trading pairs and assets that fall outside of the parameters of cryptocurrency. Keep an eye on all our channels for any exciting updates!
