Kenyan bitcoin remittance startup, BitPesa has expanded its remittance service operations to Tanzania.
With the new launch, anyone can make a payment to any Tanzanian mobile money number instantly from anywhere in the world for just three percent.
The announcement, which was made through an article on Bitpesa’s official blog, revealed that the service comes with new features, which includes – add, edit and search for your contacts right on your Pay page, calculate your payment using 7 different reference currencies and get the status on all your payments using the simple new dashboard.
According to the announcement, “We’ve been working round the clock making BitPesa even better. Our awesome customers talk to us and shared that they use BitPesa for all of their digital financial needs. Bringing home salaries they earn from global clients, paying for goods they import and export, and sending out mobile payments to all of the people and business partners in their lives.
To grow alongside our customers we moved South across the map and launched in our 2nd country.”
BitPesa launched its international money transfer in Kenya last year, and has slowly been working on its goal of expanding throughout Africa. Besides its remittance product, the company operates an exchange in Kenya and Ghana.
