Why Consider Cryptocurrencies in Africa?


Cryptocurrency ecosystem is growing steadily in Africa as such a disruptive innovation that most economists believe will blossom on the continent in the long run. As Binusu, we strongly believe in digital currencies as the Future of Finance in Africa, and here is why;

  1. Financial Inclusion: With only a smartphone and an internet connection, anyone can participate in the global economy. There are applications that can also enable you to access the blockchain without the internet or a smartphone using USSD. No one is left behind.
  2. Reduced Remittance Costs: Many Africans working abroad send money back home to support their families. Cryptocurrencies offer a more cost-effective way to transfer money internationally, cutting down on remittance costs, both financial and time.
  3. Economic Empowerment: Cryptocurrencies open up new opportunities for entrepreneurship and financial self-reliance. African entrepreneurs and businesses can now accept digital currencies as payment for products and services, hence paving the way for international business, with an option to easily convert to FIAT with platforms like
  4. Currency Stability: Some African nations struggle with volatile national currencies, which can lead to hyperinflation and financial instability. Cryptocurrencies can provide a stable store of value and a hedge against such economic challenges.
  5. Security and Transparency: Blockchain technology enhances the security and transparency of financial transactions. This is very important in regions with a history of corruption and or inefficient financial systems.
  6. Investment Opportunities: Cryptocurrencies have gained significant value over the years. While investing always carries risks, the potential for substantial returns makes cryptocurrencies an attractive investment option.
  7. Education and Awareness: The rise of blockchain and cryptocurrencies in Africa has led to increased educational opportunities. Many organizations and communities provide resources and training, to help individuals understand and use this technology effectively.
