The crypto industry is establishing itself more and more in Africa. From Jack Dorsey’s interest way before the COVID-19 pandemic had even started, to surging Bitcoin use across the continent, and even Akon’s crypto cities, Africa is getting more open to the idea of crypto, and the outside world is seeing the massive potential of this almost completely untapped market.
The biggest move that will involve the crypto sector in Africa right now, however, is the launch of AFEN NFT marketplace, which took place on August 20th. The launch is one of the biggest crypto events on the continent, and it will have a massive impact on how the world will perceive African culture, as it will allow artists from all across the continent to tokenize and present their art in the form of digital collections.
Congratulations to @afenblockchain , The NBBF, and the @NigeriaBasket basketball team. 🔥
You can support the team through basketball NFTs on AFEN NFT marketplace
