Explorations into digital currency technologies will shape the evolution of the global financial system, so understanding the African continent’s approach to money is key.

Joining this episode of “Money Reimagined” with hosts Sheila Warren and Michael Casey is Elizabeth Rossiello, CEO of African fintech firm AZA Finance. Rossiello previously joined the show in 2020 to discuss international crypto adoption.

AZA announced this week a partnership with exchange FTX to build continent-wide infrastructure, education programs and crypto solutions to help accelerate Africa's integration into the emerging Web 3 economy.

Though there were challenges, innovative solutions were found to implement effective digital payment solutions across the continent. How will crypto’s influence impact Africa in the coming years?
