As discussed in an earlier post, Dash transactions are near-instant and at zero or almost zero cost. Dash has also seen growing adoption across the African continent and this new addition opens up more options and reasons to adopt and use Dash as an alternative to other popular payment methods like Bitcoin and ETH.
Speaking about this, Michael Foster, CEO, LocalCryptos, said:
“We share key growth goals with Dash, and have been in contact with the Dash Core Group for some time in order to plan this alliance, as we both understand how LocalCryptos can provide liquidity to the real world applications Dash is seeking, and Dash can provide a fast and low cost transaction option.”
LocalCryptos has seen impressive growth in Africa in 2020 with Kenya becoming its largest market on the continent and the 5th largest worldwide.
