The demand for Ethereum has continued to use as many people discover its use and potential investment opportunity. Ethereum comes in second after bitcoin in the coin markets cap. It has a market capitalisation of over 28 billion USD. I have received series of emails from my readers asking me where they can buy the Ethereum Coin ‘Ether’ in Nigeria.
I have written on Ethereum before; its concept, how to create its wallet and where to buy. That being said here is a list of exchanges where you can buy Ether in Nigeria. I have bought Ether from some of these companies and spoken with the customer service of some of them.
Note: You don’t buy Ethereum, Ethereum is the platform. You buy Ether, Ether (ETH) is the currency of Ethereum.

Luno is foreign cryptocurrency exchange that has become a household name in the crypto community of Nigeria. They provide exchange service for Bitcoin and Ethereum. The outstanding feature of Luno is the convenience they give. You can buy and Sell Ether and BTC, trade these coins in the platform and have the equivalent sent to your bank account. They also have an App for easy transaction on the go. Luno is a great platform and I think every Nigerian should have an account with them. The downside with Luno is that their customer service is not great.
