A Place Where People May Be Using Crypto For More Than Speculation – Ep.031

Tricia Martinez, director of the Dala Foundation and founder and CEO of Wala, describes how cryptocurrency Dala is being used in Africa and how it hit 100,000 new wallets and 2.5 million in transactions in two months, with an average transaction size of around $0.27. She talks about how 94% of transactions in Africa are still being done in cash, why the problem she’s trying to solve needs its own cryptocurrency and can’t use bitcoin or ether, and how Wala’s users are using Dala. Plus, she explains why she’s focusing her entrepreneurial efforts in Africa and other emerging markets.
