Cryptocurrency exchange Binance announced support for the Sierra Leonean Leone (SLL) on its peer-to-peer (P2P) platform in February 2023.

This addition allows Sierra Leone residents to directly buy and sell cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), Tether (USDT), Ethereum (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB), and Binance USD (BUSD) using their local currency.

Through Binance P2P, users can now:

Post trade advertisements: Advertise their desire to buy or sell cryptocurrencies with SLL.

Zero fees: Enjoy zero transaction fees when trading with other users or verified merchants.

Multiple crypto options: Trade directly with other users for various cryptocurrencies beyond just Bitcoin.

Binance is also seeking local P2P merchants in Sierra Leone. These merchants can benefit from:

Exclusive support: Receive dedicated customer support from Binance.

Verified badges: Gain increased trust from potential trading partners through verified badges.

Advanced tools: Utilize advanced trading tools to manage their P2P business effectively.

VIP programs: Enjoy benefits like VIP discounts and zero commissions.

This move by Binance opens up new opportunities for Sierra Leonean residents to participate in the cryptocurrency market using their local currency. It also fosters a more accessible and efficient way to buy and sell crypto within the country.
