Binance P2P App Blocked in Nigeria – President Tinubu Takes Action Against Dollar Manipulation

Recent reports indicate that the Binance P2P app is currently inaccessible in Nigeria, raising concerns about potential blockage or restrictions imposed by President Bola Tinubu.

The alleged reason behind this action revolves around accusations of dollar manipulation associated with the platform.

Binance’s Commitment to Fair Practices:

In response to the situation, Binance issued a statement emphasizing its commitment to maintaining a market-driven, fraud-free, and manipulation-free platform for users.

The company asserted its dedication to user protection and highlighted measures in place to address malicious or manipulative behavior, including the removal of offending users from the platform.

Enhancements and Safeguards:

Binance also shared insights into ongoing efforts to enhance processes and tools, such as implementing an upper limit for ads, filtering and removing undesirable ads, and establishing deposit requirements for merchants posting ads.

These measures aim to strengthen the platform’s resilience against market manipulators and ensure a secure environment for users.

Exchange Rate Variations:

The situation is further complicated by fluctuations in the exchange rates between the US Dollar (USD) and the Nigerian Naira (NGN).

The exchange rate on October 9, 2023, at 771.732, valued $1,025 at ₦791,023.25.

However, variations over the last 30 days and within the week have contributed to a considerable difference in the Naira equivalent of $1,025.

Weekly and Monthly Variances:

Examining the weekly high and low exchange rates, the value of $1,025 fluctuates between ₦791,023.25 and ₦781,162.75, representing a weekly variance of ₦9,860.5.

Over the broader period of 30 days, the Naira equivalent of $1,025 has shown a variance of ₦50,942.5.

Current Exchange Rate and Conversion:

As of the latest available information, $1,025 is valued at 776,867.30 NGN, with an exchange rate of 757.9193.

This figure is subject to change based on market conditions.

Users seeking real-time updates can utilize online tools like Mconvert for historical charts and exchange rate tables.

Currency Conversion Tools:

To facilitate convenient currency conversion, Binance suggests the use of currency converter widgets or exchange rate widgets.

These tools can be easily installed on websites, providing users with up-to-date information on currency pairs, including USD to NGN rates.


The reported blockage of the Binance P2P app in Nigeria raises questions about the intersection of cryptocurrency platforms with regulatory and economic considerations.

The exchange rate fluctuations further add complexity to the situation, emphasizing the need for users to stay informed about market dynamics and utilize reliable tools for currency conversions.

The evolving landscape of digital currencies requires continuous monitoring and adaptation to ensure a secure and transparent financial environment.
