World mobile token trading, excited to see this project maturing from our first conversations 3 years ago!
Blockchain is the key behind the potential explosive growth of the World Mobile network 📳 Customers will use the network like any other, to make calls, connect to the internet, just like we all do today. Under the hood, now that's where things get really clever...

I don't know if some realize that @InputOutputHK, @IOHK_Charles & @jjtoconnor literally spent YEARS building & realizing our African strategy. I still remember sitting with Charles in 2016, having him tell me about his plans & thinking about how huge this is. #Cardano $ADA
Charles absolutely smashing his freestyle talk on #cardanoafrica , one of the best talks I’ve heard him give, and I’ve heard many! @IOHK_Charles @InputOutputHK

I love this project
You’ve heard @jjtoconnor and @IOHK_Charles speak about #realfi . Check out @empowa_io looking to connecting DeFi with real world applications putting roofs over heads, creating ownership, and connecting #nft digital collectibles to add fun to funding in sub-Saharan Africa
