Beyond banking - The possibilities provided by blockchain technology in Sub-Saharan Africa

Fintech is a major force shaping the structure of the financial industry in Sub-Saharan Africa and it is rapidly changing the competitive landscape.

Across the continent, it’s also transforming access to energy, education, and even healthcare. Is it too good to be true? Should Central Banks race to use digital currency? What should we be thinking about around socio-economic change, data protection, accountability, regulations, and policy? Our analysts talk through this complex issue.
