About the Episode

In a continent with the highest mobile banking usage in the world, why is Africa lagging behind in cryptocurrency adoption?

It should be embraced by countries economically-plagued by unstable currencies, governments and poor banking systems. But there are some roadblocks that must be removed.

Enter Elisha Owusu Akyaw. Only 17 years old, he has plans to help open up Ghana and West Africa to cryptocurrency usage. It all starts with education.
