Is cryptocurrency part of the solutions to Africa’s problems?

Published

on

By

Throughout human history, technology has repeatedly disrupted the way things are done. The disruption often happens when new technology does things in a more efficient manner, or in a better way.

Africa is a large, but diverse continent. A lot of problems plague that influx Africa, are unique to Africa, as they have been solved in other continents through the use of technology. Crypto currencies run on decentralized blockchain technology. There are 54 countries on the continent, and a lot of these countries use different currencies. Bank transfers between countries is sometimes made difficult because of different currencies.

This is not good for international trade within Africa. Crypto currency is a very effective solution to this problem. A trader from Nigeria can send Crypto currency (Lotucoin) to a trader in Burkina Faso, and the trader in Burkina Faso will get the payment instantly, removing the inefficiency of the traditional banking sector. Crypto exchanges like Lotucrypto, make payments with cryptocurrencies a pleasant process. A merchant can download the Lotucrypto app, purchase cryptocurrency with his local fiat currency and make payments for goods in another country, using Bitcoin or Lotucoin (the native coin of the Lotucrypto exchange).

They can do all of these at ease without leaving their home. Unemployment is another problem Africa faces. A lot of countries in Africa have shocking unemployment rates.

Crypto currency is a solution to this in a number of ways. A lot of crypto enthusiasts and software engineers make a living from working with crypto powered applications, new crypto projects and crypto exchanges . Some crypto enthusiasts work on solutions that make crypto currency more accepted in Africa, and they earn a decent living from this. Others earn a living from speculating on cryptocurrencies. A lot of countries in Africa have volatile political atmosphere.

This makes the centralization of data resources a risky thing. Decentralization provided by storage of data on the blockchain solves this problem in a unique way. Data resources are owned and shared by the network, therefore, it is difficult to destroy data hosted on a blockchain, since every member of the blockchain network has access to exactly the same data. Adding more members to a blockchain network even makes the blockchain network more secure.

This solves the threats posed to data by unstable political systems. These are just few of the ways in which crypto currency currently solves some of Africa’s problems. Crypto currency is a relatively young field, and research is still ongoing on it. Hopefully research will unlock more ways in which crypto currency can solve the problems of the African continent. The answer to the question in the title of this article is a resounding “Yes”.

Also recalling recently, the Nigerian male Barbie,  Bobrisky was in online messy fight with Nollywood, actress Nkechi Blessing which we are still contemplating if the misunderstanding is going to die off soon.

The fight started when Nkechi Blessing wrote a post on her page apologising to the female fan, who drew her as tattoo that she earlier condemned.

A fan of Bobrisky commented under the post, insinuating that Nkechi Blessing wrote the apology out of fear of Bobrisky who had earlier advised “fans” to mind the celebrities they follow.

Annoyed by the comment, Nkechi Blessing fired back at the commenter asking her if she and Bobrisky were mad.

Nkechi replied saying: “Abi you and Bobrisky dey mad? You want make I swear for you?”

Bobrisky, while calling out Nkechi noted that he enjoys his peace and as such the actress should never have any reason to talk about him.

He however took to his page to reply Nkechi sharing a screenshot of her deleted post.

“Nkechi or whatever your names is called !!!! I like my space and peace a lot, that is y I don’t follow people here, but when you crossed your lane you are definitely waking a dangerous python up, I know you and clout are 5 and 6 and we are both SHAMELESS!!!!

“I repeat if u nor wan make Sango and Ogun strike your whole generation. If you have any issue with me be brave and face me let roll d dice. Na me say make you they do audio giveaway for your page?,” he wrote.

In another post he said: “My leaked ass hole has given me wat your generation can’t afford !!!!! I don’t blame you thou ! Let me quickly remind you how your mother use you to serve men when she was still selling beer at a beer parlour.

Nkechi accused Bobrisky of fighting with her because of a man and hinted on the strained relationship between him and his best friend, Tonto Dikeh.
