But paradoxical is the fact that the token is listed on a platform that is unavailable to most Africans. Consequently, this could significantly slow down the adoption of the coin in the continent.

For many decades, web users have been wanting to have full access to their own data, saying that if a certain company wants their data, the firm has to purchase it. And this can be possible with the help of blockchain. When companies want to advertise based on people’s data, the firms in question have to pay the web users in order to show the adverts.

Of recent, Facebook revealed that it is planning to start on this initiative with the help of blockchain.
eSports has revolutionized the way in which the world views and digests video games.
