The Chief Executive Officer of Binance, Changpeng Zhao, has said Africa is ready for crypto adoption.
According to him, blockchain provides a level of financial accessibility that isn’t currently available on the continent.
He said this while visiting Ivory Coast and Senegal as parts of efforts to collaborate with policymakers. He said, “Africa is primed for crypto adoption as blockchain provides financial accessibility not currently available to lots of Africans.”
During his trip, Zhao announced Binance’s partnership with Jokkolabs, one of Africa’s first social impact hubs. He explained that with thought this partnership, Binance will launch a blockchain awareness and education programme across Francophone Africa.
He stated, “Together, we will reinforce the region as a hub of blockchain innovation and entrepreneurship.”
