We’re helping more people gain financial independence



Paxful, a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency marketplace has reiterated its commitment to financial inclusion. To achieve this, the firm has inaugurated Peer Programme to help more people be financially independent. The Paxful Peer Programme is an international entrepreneurial initiative which gives our most dedicated users a chance to become global crypto community leaders. Its Nigeria Regional Manager, Nena Nwachukwu said that the Paxful Peers are new wave of entrepreneurs committed to supporting the platform, or its representatives, writes COLLINS NWEZE.

THE gains of embracing financial services and being financially independent cannot be over-empahsised. That explains why Paxful, a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency marketplace is taking steps to ensure that more Nigerians gain financial freedom through wise investments.

Nigeria Regional Manager at Paxful, a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency marketplace, Nena Nwachukwu, is overlooking the company’s localisation processes, new partnerships and recruitment efforts, all while facilitating the business- and revenue growth in the region. She joined Paxful to help its biggest market, Nigeria, expand to new heights.

Nwachukwu said the Peer Programme was launched in November 2019. “The Program’s mission is to develop global leaders who are committed to providing ground support in the existing- and new markets. Educating about crypto and peer-to-peer trading is their priority. The Paxful Peer Program is the next step in evolving our community and showing them an entrepreneurial side of cryptocurrency. We are thrilled to be able to enhance the community with an unprecedented level of knowledge around digital asset trading, especially Bitcoin (BTC), and even more excited to be able to provide growth opportunities to our hard-working peers,” she said.

According to her, the criteria required to be a part of Paxful’s Peer programme  are for the interested person to fill out an online application form, be interviewed through voice or video (via Zoom or Google meets) or texting interview (via WhatsApp or Telegram) and applicants will be expected to answer some questions about their crypto experience, trading history, goals, among others.

Peer Programme managers will review the application internally and if the candidate is successful, they will be contacted via email and given  an agreement to sign. After this, they will be assigned badges and introduced as new Peers to the existing members of the Peer Program.

“There are three levels in the Paxful Peer Programme. All participants embark on their journey as a Peer and follow a growth path that eventually leads to the possibility of becoming a Paxful employee.  Level 1 (Peer): Peers provide on-the-ground support to local communities. They promote Paxful on social media, aid in the moderation of online groups, and provide useful feedback for any new features on the platform.  Level 2 (Ambassador): Ambassadors create quality content, organize Paxful-sponsored meetups while expanding their crew of affiliates. They produce content and attract users. Above other responsibilities, an Ambassador is required to bring at least one Peer to the programme in order to become an Associate. Level 3 (Associate): The Associate is the highest rank in the Program. They are the most experienced experts of the Paxful platform. They can move on to different paths based on their skills and preferences, one of which may bring them to gaining employment at Paxful. Alternatively, they can focus on training other Peers, bringing on new Peers, or shielding Paxful from potential hackers and attacks,”s he stated.

Nwachukwu said peer programme members at all levels earn $5 for every verified new sign up, once their referrals complete at least one trade.

“Moreover, their referrals receive $5 as well. Every time their referrals buy or sell BTC/USDT on Paxful, members of the Peer programme receive 50 per cent of the escrow fee. Aside from the extra layer of credibility and positive reputation, each Peer earns a special  badge visible on the members’ profile, and  Priority Support from Paxful moderators. They are also involved in testing new features and products before anyone else, their product feedback is highly appreciated  by the team”.

“Peers also help newbies and educate them on how to trade on Paxful, and some active members of the Program help moderate country-based Telegram communities: they have also their badges on Telegram. Paxful appreciates Peers’ involvement and a can-do attitude so we give them the recognition they deserve;  Paxful  promotes Peers’ offers on a regular basis via  localized emails to help Peers receive more trusted trade partners. We promote Peers on our official social media channels, they are also featured on Paxful blog, we invite them as guest speakers to our webinars and run special giveaway campaigns for Peers and their referrals. In addition, members of the Peer program can hold their own offline meetups in their regions for which we can cover their expenses of up to N200,000 (or $500)”.

“High-performing Ambassadors and Associates can communicate with  Paxful employees across different  departments, and users at Associate level earn a total  of about N750,000 (2000 USD/month), which can be life-changing and replace a full-time job. All members of the programme receive Paxful merch (branded merchandise like hoodies, t-shirts, backpacks among others”.

Nwachukwu is a seasoned FinTech professional, starting her journey six years ago at Jumia where she resolved disputes in the e-commerce sector. She then moved onto Aza Finance, where she remotely supervised a team based across Africa and Europe. A Bachelor of Arts graduate,  University of Nigeria, Nsukka, she is on top of overlooking the company’s most valuable clients and business operations, she assisted with the development of new products and enhancement of services.

Speaking more on the affiliate program earnings, she said she can proudly say “we have the most lucrative affiliate program in the crypto space. Every Paxful user has an affiliate link and an affiliate code generated by default. All they need to do is share it on their blog/website/social media/WhatsApp groups and attract new Paxful users. When new users sign up via this link/code, verify their accounts and start buying Bitcoin on Paxful, the affiliates start earning 50 per cent of the escrow fee as commission every time their referrals buy BTC/tether on Paxful. We generously share half of our commissions from the trades with affiliates. The affiliates need to find users who are interested in trading in order to earn a lot from the commissions. Our Program has two tiers. Affiliates earn from their referrals when they sign up and start trading (Tier 1). Their referrals’ new users are the Tier 2 referrals: they earn 10 per cent of the escrow fee every time their Tier 2 referrals  buy BTC/USDT on the platform”.

There are almost 200 members currently signed up. Most of the members are from the African region: Nigeria, Kenya and Ghana. Majority of Peers are from Nigeria, almost 40 per cent.  According to National Bureau of Statistics, Nigeria’s unemployment rate as of second quarter 2020 is 27.1 per cent, and young people between the ages of 15 to 34 are hit the hardest, with 13.9 million unemployed in this age group.

Funmi Iyanda Discusses Child Molestation And Sex Slavery



“Children are dying. Children are being molested.  People need to spend their lives in jail, and you’ll see, this culture will disappear.”- Mr. James Ibor on Public Eye.

Public Eye

On Sunday, November 29, 2020, Funmi Iyanda had a conversation about sex slavery in the Keyi community of Cross River State with The Project Director Vision Spring Initiatives, Mrs. Ngozi Nwosu -Juba, The Principal Council Basic Rights Council Initiative (BRCI), Mr. James Ibor Esq. and the Former Lagos (now Kano) Zonal Commander of NAPTIP, Mr Daniel Atokolo.

The show began with a brief documentary which shed light on “Money Wives”. Girls, some younger than 8, some from birth, are betrothed to men old enough to father them as surety for debts. The girls spend their lives as slaves. They are molested and stripped of their rights. If their “husbands” die, they are passed on to the next male in the family.

Overwhelmed with emotion from the documentary, Funmi Iyanda asked, “Why does everyone hate women?” Ms. Ngozi echoed Funmi’s sentiment. “How do you describe where a girl child is hated so much? They are slaves! Calling them money wives is painting a beautiful picture.”

It was revealed that Public Eye has a money wife on standby. Unfortunately, the family of her late “husband”, who has refused to release her even after his death, whisked her away shortly before she could join Public Eye via phone.

The conversation moved on to what the Cross River State government has done to abolish this heinous tradition. “Cross River State has not done enough. After their campaigns, they prosecuted no one to serve as a deterrent. These girls are still suffering. The practice is getting more vicious and dangerous.”, said Mr. James Ibor.

Having spent time in this region, in collaboration with the Cross River State government and other agencies, he was frustrated with the little change effected in the area.

Mr Ibor continued, “Children are dying. Children are being molested.  These are felonies, yet not one “Money Husband” has been persecuted. People need to spend their lives in jail, and you’ll see, this culture will disappear.”

As regards what institutions such as NAPTIP can do to solve this problem, Mr Daniel Atokolo had this to say, “ Impunity persists when there are no sanctions. We can not pay off the debts that these girls are suffering because government policies should not perpetrate crime. What we should do is give a counter-narrative to what they believe in and show them examples of people who have come out of this experience and are doing well. They become ambassadors of hope.”



Public Eye airs every Sunday at 5 pm on TVC News. You can catch them on any of these television channels: DSTV (channel 418), Startimes (channel 307), GOTV (channel 45), or channel 572 on Sky.

The die-hard fan of Bhim Nation president Stonebwoy, Ayisha Modi aka She_loves_Stonebwoy has gone on a blasting spree after the manager of missing musician Castro reacted to her allegations on Sarkodie.

Tema-based rapper Sarkodie has been in the bad books of Ayisha Modi since his manager Angel Town issue with Stonebwoy months ago ahead of his Black Love virtual concert.

Ayisha Modi in a recent interview on Okay FM revealed that Sarkodie has never gone out to offer help to the family of Castro ever since he disappeared some years ago.

According to her, not only has Sarkodie failed to take care of the family of Castro but has also kept Castro’s share of the hit song “Adonai” when he knows very well that Castro invested into the music project adding that Sarkodie is a greedy person.

“Has he even given Castro’s mother GH500 before? This is a matter that has been on my heart for a long time and today I am asking him in your studio,” Ayisha quizzed.

The YouTube money, has he even given anyone some? But for me, when Sarkodie started his career, I knew he was greedy”.

Things took turns when UK-based Ghanaian music promoter, Nii Ofori Tackie known as Alordia granted an interview and explained that Sarkodie has been of great help to the family of Castro asking Ghanaians to disregard Ayisha’s comment.

In a new development, Ayisha has bared her teeth at Alordia stating he is telling lies and just defending Sarkodie to make him look good.

She insisted and maintained that Sarkodie has not done anything for the family of Castro while insulting people in the creative arts industry.
