What is Fast Clearing and how to use it?

Last Updated 26 days ago

Fast Clearing is an added function that allows non-Standard Bank users to process their withdrawals on the same day they have made them.

Why non-Standard Bank users only? 

ChainEX currently uses Standard Bank as their bank of choice, therefore any withdrawals made to a Standard bank already receive their funds within 24 hours.

Please follow these easy steps to make a ZAR withdrawal using the fast clearing function:

3. Identify your ZAR wallet

4. Under “Action” there are four different icons, select the second icon - withdraw (a Bitcoin with an up arrow) or click the withdrawal button on the ZAR Card on the top of
