  1. Africa is proving to be a burgeoning economy of untapped potential and I’ve long thought that the finance sector, specifically crypto, should be targeting it as the next frontier. The continent could certainly benefit from access to these currencies so it’s great to see some attention being paid in that area of the world.

    • I agree. Honest crypto-projects should target this continent, even more so as people in Africa seem to have already a great interest in cryptocurrencies, probably looking for an alternative to their depreciating national currencies
