During the visit, Mr. CZ pledged that the exchange would collaborate with African policymakers on the significance of blockchain to the continent’s financial economies. According to Zhao, Africa is well-positioned for cryptocurrency adoption since blockchain technology offers financial accessibility that many Africans do not currently have.
