The adoption of Blockchain by African nations is reported to be the fastest in the world, according to a recent report by PwC & Emurgo Africa 2023 on the “State of Web3 in Africa”. Blockchain funding across Africa increased by 1,668 per cent in 2022, with Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa leading the continent’s Web3 adoption.
