Blockchain deployment in Africa

One of the goals from the earliest inception of Cardano has been to push power to the edge of the financial system and start to provide the same benefits and opportunities enjoyed in Western countries to the rest of the world.

So we were really pleased to see a report this morning on Crypto News Flash that the work started in Ethiopia may be taking shape. They report:

IOG is in the final stages of a government contract in Ethiopia to bring several million users onto the Cardano blockchain.

The company behind Cardano is working with 5 “focus countries” in Africa and will onboard 100 million users within the next year or two.

Other focus countries mentioned include Tanzania, South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria.

Real world use cases will ultimately drive adoption of Cardano and allow the project to start empowering improvements in life opportunities.

Exciting news, we will watch developments closely.
