Africa recently look a leading seat in the crypto arena given that the Central African Republic (CAR) has now become the second nation in the world to adopt bitcoin as legal tender. The country made the announcement in late April after taking a page right out of El Salvador’s playbook (the Central American nation was the first to declare BTC legal in September of last year).
The adoption of BTC in the Central African Republic means that all businesses, stores, and enterprises must accept bitcoin as a form of payment should customers walk in and choose to pay for goods and services with the world’s leading digital currency by market cap.
The Right Move to Make?
Obed Namsio – the chief of staff of the country’s president Faustin Archange Touadera – expressed enthusiasm for the decision to adopt BTC in a statement, explaining:
The move places the Central African Republic on the map of the world’s boldest and most visionary countries.
