We are open to working with the continent’s countries to establish robust governance policies, assess existing laws and policies. We aim to help African nations to shape legislative and commercial standards while ensuring accountability, which in turn will create new jobs and ensure sustainable growth. Blockchain will afford African countries to diversify their economies and help the continent to increase its innovation and investment attractiveness.”
