In a tweet, Chipper Cash co-founder and CEO Ham Serunjogi reveals a successful series B round of funding that witnessed the participation of venture capital firm Bezos Expeditions.

“I’m thrilled to announce our $30M Series B round – but particularly excited to have Ribbit Capital and Jeff Bezos join us on this journey as we continue executing on our vision for Chipper Cash app.”

Speaking to TechCrunch, Serunjogi says the startup is poised to expand its product offerings to cryptocurrency investment and trading services.

“We’ll always be a P2P (peer-to-peer) financial transfer platform at our core. But we’ve had demand from our users to offer other value services… like purchasing cryptocurrency assets and making investments in stocks.”

Chipper Cash is currently implementing beta dropdowns to its website and app that enable users to buy and sell Bitcoin. According to fintech startup’s website, users can buy Bitcoin for as low as 380 Nigerian naira, 16 South African rand, or 3,500 Ugandan shilling.

Founded in 2018 by Ham Serunjogi and Maijid Moujaled, Chipper Cash currently operates P2P payment services in seven countries across Africa. In addition, the startup runs Chipper Checkout, which allows local and cross-border consumer-to-business payments.

The company processes 80,000 daily transactions worth $100 million per month from 3 million users.
