  3. Every crypto expert out there will agree that bitcoin is set to quickly ride uphill and many people would live to regret not having accumulated enough while it’s still affordable. In my own position, Btc steals the spotlights and will always. Now it's sitting around $8000 in value. Personally I'm still accumulating even now, I started investing in crypto last year and I went down the drain until I found a comment on YouTube about a crypto expert called Billy Thompson. I didn't hesitate to contact him, I traded with him and went from having 5Btc to 14Btc in 4 weeks. Thanks to the lady who posted about Billy Thompson.. Let’s keep spreading words about him to help the Ignorant people who are losing, If you have less than 3 Bitcoins or more why not trade it and make more profits? It’s no news that Mr. Billy has been helping so many of us out here with new working strategies to trade our Bitcoin. Imagine selling each of them at 20k in a few months, you can reach him on Telegram: @Billythompson55 for his assistance concerning btc signals and working with a trading pattern that is best for you.

  4. Thanks Cointelgraph! You are my daily "go-to" for crypto info.

    Okay let me help this guy out.

    1) Sending salaries to farm workers as so that they can then go to a kiosk & withdraw their salary.
    Thus the farmer saves money on fuel & the potential risk of driving around with boat loads of cash. The farm workers aren't paid in cash. But can retrieve the cash when needed. (Which could increase farm workers potential to saving)

    2) Mobile money is huge in Africa. If a village produces maize. You don't need to worry about the cash getting to the village within the logistical process. Thus adding an extra layer of security.

    3) When the people/small road side shops (NOT ATM"S) processes these mobile transactions. It provides them, the shop owner with profit (Not the Bank), as to feed their families.

    4) Mobile money actually gives more people access to cold hard cash, as there are more places to process these transactions, for cheaper. For example, you won't have ATM's sitting out in the middle of rural locations. You will have small money processing shops.

    5) The need for cash in-transit vans will start to decrease, As money will be processed by the countries population & not the banks. (Transactions fee's are what keep banks a float).

    6) The cost to do a local, interbank transfer in some countries is roughly $35+. They say a majority of people in Africa live off of $1 a day. That is 35 days of pure saving to make a interbank transfer.

    Next time yall have someone comment on Africa. Please make sure they have a vested interest in it.

    Because certain books won't work here.

    Kind Regards
