They have been different cryptocurrencies like popularly known Bitcoin(Btc), Ethereum(ETH), Litcoin(LTC),XRP (XRP), Bitcoin cash (BCH), EOS (EOS), Binance coin (BNB) and so others.

African blockchain start ups and investment companies are working hard to find solution to the challenges faced by Africans in international money transfer, voting, real estate and others. This has led to the development of some great projects and cryptocurrencies which we will share with you based on the crypto Africa team.
