In May 2018, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe ordered Golix to shut down operations. The trading exchange then decided to other countries while they sent a counter case against RBZ. RBZ ordered the banks to close accounts belonging to Golix. This step cut off their air supply. And with that, all centralized digital currency trading activities ceased in the country.

Golix is a cryptocurrency exchange based in Zimbabwe and is expanding into other parts of Africa. The exchange allows anyone to move currency out of the country — something that wasn’t possible as banks and other financial institutions restricted the avenues to facilitate this. For instance, they limited how much their members could withdraw and other requirements needed pre-filling of accounts with United States dollars.

The Golix cryptocurrency exchange also has offices in Johannesburg, South Africa.

In the past, Zimbabwe’s dependence on imports for a majority of products meant that every business would need hard currency to transact. The situation did not get easier even after banks brought in restrictions such as how much one could withdraw from their accounts. In fact, it became worse as it made illegal activities and black markets to flourish.

The need for an alternative currency became clear even to facilitate transactions as an alternative method of paying for goods and services. This inspired the formation of Golix cryptocurrency exchange.
