Too Long; Didn't Read

Digital payments are growing in popularity across Africa, however a lot of people are still unbanked. African retailers will be able to use ADA Pay to accept crypto payments in Africa. The World Bank Group pledged to achieve Universal Financial Access by 2020. ADA Pay has already partnered with various African NGOs and charities, and so far the protocol has processed almost 100,000 ADA (around $100k) in donations. It will use a blockchain-based approach to provide an internet connection to people in the region with renewable energy.
