Unfortunately for users of Standard Bank, there is currently no way for you to buy Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies directly through your Standard Bank online login.
Although Standard Bank is friendly towards cryptocurrency exchanges in South Africa, they do not offer any native services for their clients to buy crypto directly through the Standard Bank App or platform.
Yes you can. The best way to buy Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in South Africa is to connect your Standard Bank account to a trusted cryptocurrency exchange in the country. This will ultimately enable you to deposit South African Rand (ZAR) to quickly buy Bitcoin and crypto.
