USING CRYPTO CURRENCIES IN AFRICA
Cryptocurrency transactions in Africa are increasing. Virtual currency offers advantages for a young, tech-savvy population on a continent that already embraces mobile money.
Monthly cryptocurrency transfers to and from Africa of under ten thousand dollars- typically made by individuals and small businesses – jumped more than fifty-five percent last year to reach $316 million, according to data from the U.S. blockchain research firm chainalysis.
