Tanzania is on an aggressive effort to drive innovation via technology adoption in the country by overhauling a lot of its service delivery.

In November 2020, Tanzanian President, John Magufuli, reiterated the government’s commitment to increase and growing internet and mobile phone usage in the country to 80% by 2025 in order to prioritize ICT innovation in the country.

Recently, a lot of positive news on the acceptance and possibly adoption of blockchain technology has been coming from Tanzania.

The Tanzanian legal system as well as the Central Bank of Tanzania Governor, Professor Florens Luoga, have been urged and seem to show a positive outlook on the use and adoption of blockchain as recently highlighted by BitKE.
