Understanding the world of cryptocurrency
Part of the challenge surrounding cryptocurrency adoption in Africa, besides the lack of reliable internet, particularly beyond urban areas, is the varying level of financial literacy.
Most people are not conscious of investment types beyond the basics like real estate or stocks. Even those who hear about certain billionaires probably don’t know much about how they built their wealth, beyond thinking that it has something to do with money.
“The longer it takes this information to get to the general public, especially the younger generation, the less likely they will be to aspire to this in the first place,” Ms. Wanjiru says. “That means decentralized finance and cryptocurrency could be at risk of being extremely niche in the future.”
The Goal of Zappay is making cryptocurrency more mainstream starts with breaking down the concepts into one’s local language. Altough we have seen some efforts to translate educational material into Kiswahili, there are still hundreds of other languages and dialects across the continent.
“More needs to be done to translate this to different local languages so that the elder population and those who may not be in urban areas can have access to the information,” she says.
“At the same time, various platforms need to make it easier for people who are completely new to cryptocurrency understand it better.
The need for regulation and trust
Given the constantly changing nature of the cryptocurrency world, one of the biggest risks is lack of proper regulation in some African countries. This could put companies out of business overnight through no fault of their own, yet regulation is exactly what the industry needs most.
This is where Zappay succeeds as it allows its users to use trusted regulated solutions which users can count on. Zappay’s platform and downloadable app, and easy sign up process to be part of the Zappay ecosystem community is simple and requires little expertise in digital finance to participate.
Although the continent is still growing its cryptocurrency economy. Zappay believes that with a recent record of $8.0 billion worth having been received and $8.1 billion sent on-chain that year, the amount of economic activity is creating life-changing value for users in the region facing economic instability, offering low-fee remittances and an alternative way to save.
