There are a lot of people who take having a bank account for granted.
But it’s important to acknowledge that this does not happen all over the world.
For instance, it’s not true in the African continent. Business Insider detailed in a 2015 survey that more than 2 billion people across the whole world don’t have the ability to enjoy what it’s like having a bank account or access to a financial institution or mobile payment system.
Binance comes with a solution for Africa
Binance has recently revealed that they would set up a branch for their operations in Uganda.
The exchange’s move was seen as a fascinating one and also as a much-needed strategy for the development of the African crypto sector.
It looks like the Ugandans are on board with Binance’s quest to create a stable exchange in Africa.
Binance Uganda flaunts massive success in the first week since launching and the high number of sign-ups mirrors the strong demand across sub-Saharan Africa.
The platform opened its doors to the public last month, and it’s already gaining massive success.
