What is Mobile Money?
How To Buy Bitcoin With Mobile Money: Before we dive into specific details on how to buy Bitcoin with mobile money we must understand what mobile money is. Mobile Money Transfer is a technology that allows you to use your phone number to send and receive money. This makes your phone number move away from its traditional function of communicating and makes it a money wallet.
Mobile money is sometimes referred to as “mobile wallet” or by the name of the service provider such as MTN Mobile Money, EcoCash, M-PAisA, mPesa, GCash, and the rest. They are most popular in Africa, Asia and Latin America. In Ghana, mobile money services are provided by telecommunications companies like MTN Ghana, Vodafone and AirtelTigo.
The Bank of Ghana reported that about $2.2 billion worth of transactions were carried out in 2021. The Bank of Ghana also reports that in 2021, there were 40.9 million registered mobile money accounts and 17.5 million active accounts.
Mobile Money aims to make online transactions accessible to everyone, according to statistics from the World Bank, over 1.7 billion adults don’t have a bank account. However, most of these people have a mobile phone, which makes it easier for them to have a Mobile Money account than a bank account.
Thanks to Money Money financial institutions in sub-Saharan African countries have recorded 159 million active users of mobile money in 2020 and US$490 billion in transaction value a number which seems to keep improving as the platform is gaining more popularity.
The fact that almost everyone has a phone number has complemented the success of Mobile Money in Africa. Mobile Money services are not run by banks, instead, they are run by mobile network providers and licensed independent payment service providers – called mobile money operators.
Mobile Money services are supposedly cheaper than a bank account with no account opening or ongoing account charges. In countries like Ghana where Mobile Money is popular, it is as good as having money in your pocket, but this time is more secure and easily usable

Mobile Money is not only locally accessible or in emerging markets but it also supports international money transfer thanks to its wide scope of acceptance in the world, more than 40 countries support Mobile Money. International Mobile Money Transfer is where the money is sent from an overseas country directly to a Mobile Money account.
