“We decided to partner with Delchain, Delchain being one of the most prolific financial facilities in the crypto world,” Akon said about its partnership with Delchain.
“When we met with them it was more so about allowing them to understand what we are trying to do in Africa, the kind of challenges that they will be facing, that most banks and financial facilities aren’t willing to take at the moment.”
