How trusted are they
Instantgold is one of the few trusted exchanges in Nigeria, I have personally used it and apart from some few misunderstandings with some customers, I have seen nothing but positive reviews of this platform, and I will recommend it to anyone looking to buy e-currency.
All these exchanges listed above have things that work for them and things that work against them. Some of these exchanges have really good and fast customer care, others are really quick at fulfilling orders. All in all, the exchange you use will depend on your own individual requirements.
I have used a lot of foreign exchanges for transacting, most times for business purposes and others for just experimentation. At the end, I found using local exchanges to be much easier. Exchanges like Nairaex, ngexchanger and Instantgold have shown that they are here to stay for a very long time.
The only real problem I have with instantgold’s platform, is that their website is not really mobile friendly, and their customer care is a bit slow at times, other than that, it is a fairly good exchange, I hope you have enjoyed reading my Instantgold review, if you have questions, leave them below..thank you.
