On the other hand, Paxful has launched a campaign to help onboard LocalBitcoins users seamlessly.

According to the message shared by Ray, Paxful has a laid guideline for users to transfer their assets from LocalBitcoins to Paxful. The process involves sharing the user email, Paxful profile link (which should be created before making the request), LocalBitcoins profile link, and phone number. Once done, the user submits the form.

Ray explained that the process with be done using an auto importer system from the LocalBitcoins platform to Paxful. “All LocalBitcoins traders who want to continue with your years of reputation please know you have a home, Paxful,” he said.
