You can still withdraw your crypto funds into your account with Binance P2P

Earlier, CBN released a new policy on cryptocurrency, which made funding of account on Binance difficult as they have disabled Naira transaction on their platform but you can still make withdrawal.

Do not panic your coins are safe, now here is a trick to leverage on. We all know Binance uses a third party payment gateway and those parties are regulated by the finance body of Nigeria, so this is the reason why they disable all transactions in Naira.

With or without the CBN's Crypto policy you can still withdraw your crypto fund into your account with Binance P2P.

P2P (peer-to-peer) is a trading market where you can safely trade cryptocurrency in exchange.

How does Binance P2P escrow service work

Step 1: Place your order

Place an order to buy or sell cryptocurrency. The cryptocurrency will be held by Binance P2P temporarily until the the operation is successfully completed.

Step 2: Start a conversation

Start a conversation with the seller and buyer. When you are trading with a counterpart that you do not know, we recommend that you use the chat to communicate with him/her. The chat history will be essential if there is a dispute with your counterpart and you, make an appeal.

Step 3: Make the payment or release the cryptocurrencies

If you are a buyer, make the payment and notify the seller that you completed the payment. Click the ‘confirm’ button to notify the seller that you made the payment. If you are a seller, wait for the buyer's payment confirmation before releasing the crypto.

Step 4: The transaction was successful or the counterparty was not responding

In most cases, when everything goes smoothly, the buyer pays and the seller releases the crypto, but what happens if to counterpart was not fair? In other words, the buyer do not transfer the money or thw seller did not releases the crypto after the buyer made the payment. 

In these case you need to open an appeal, click on the “appeal” button. Now is when the escrow service comes into play and this is why the crypto was temporarily held.

How does Binance P2P escrow service help crypto sellers? 

If the cryptocurrency buyer did not make the payment, Binance P2P's escrow service will return the cryptocurrency to the seller when the time for negotiation is over.

How does Binance P2P escrow service help buyers?

If the buyer made the payment but the seller did not release the cryptocurrency, the buyer can open an appeal to notify Binance's customer service that the counterparty did not release the crypto. If you are the buyer, please provide as much evidence as you can, receipt of payment, or screenshots of the conversation you had with the seller, and once our customer service confirms the payment is made, we can release the crypto to your account. 

Why is the escrow service so important?

The escrow service protects Binance’s users from scammers. If a user tries to convince you to make a deal outside the Binance P2P platform, ignore the suggestion and open an appeal. If you make a deal outside the platform we cannot protect you.  

Imagine that you want to buy cryptocurrency and you find an offer at a competitive price but the seller seems new to the platform, with zero completed orders. How can you be sure that the seller will transfer the cryptocurrency to your wallet? 

The escrow service aims to solve this type of situation, by holding the cryptocurrency in a deposit. When there is no agreement and the counterpart opens an appeal, Binance’s customer service will analyze both the buyer's and the seller's stories. If the buyer wins the appeal, the cryptocurrency will be released to his wallet. However, if he loses the appeal, the cryptocurrency will go to the seller’s wallet. 

While the cryptocurrency is in the deposit, users can trade safely without the risk of losing money. Whatever amount of money you trade, all amounts are important to Binance P2P.
