Session: Are cryptocurrencies the future of social communities in Africa?

A look at the history of financial systems tells us that before 1789, there were decentralized financial systems in Europe. These systems gave rise to the existence of a variety of monetary instruments issued by different social groups. In view of the potentialities offered by blockchain and contemporary decentralized finance, it is a question of knowing whether, through the processes of tokenization of assets, social communities in Africa would be able to issue cryptocurrencies, thus paving the way either for a simple financial inclusion, but with real financial autonomy.
