How Blockchain Turns the Game in African Financial Life

Progress never stands still. People seek for simplicity and convenience, and the financial system is no exception to that. Hardly anyone could have thought that cash could ever be replaced with plastic cards. Today, it’s time for cryptocurrency to trigger the change in the paradigm.

Besides being a great instrument for investment, crypto changes the very essence of how money is transferred. Today, everyone who owns crypto can seamlessly and transparently exchange, sell off and buy up assets.

Is that not the democratic solution our world needs? That’s the question which underpins the initial purpose of Chatex project. The company has chosen the African continent as the starting point of its expansion in order to help those who suffer from excessive commission fees and lack of fiat.

Why Africa?

The banking environment is so weak here, that it’s hardly called ‘banking’. It is mired in corruption and bureaucracy, while the level of financial literacy is extremely low. It’s a common practice for local third-party services to charge sky-high commission fees on money transferring. Sometimes these figures reach 10 or even 20 percent. Chatex’s CEO, Michael Ross-Johnson, comments the following:

“How can one be treated in such a sordid way in the continent where people survive on less than the equivalent of one dollar a day? We can’t just monitor with our hands folded. We at Chatex are here to help African people become a part of the transparent and fair system that will give them an opportunity to freely manage their money and enjoy the comprehensive financial freedom”

How Chatex will make it out?

ChatexChatex offers a same-name bot based on Telegram, which could be downloaded on any kind of a smartphone supporting the messenger. It is an official, licensed and GDPR-compliant service, which offers safe data storage, BitGo instant transfers technology and additional PIN-code protection.

Thanks to Chatex, users can carry out cross border transactions, whichever their education or location is. One registered with the bot can instantly buy crypto via banking and gift cards, including even iTunes one, and transfer money to other users worldwide with no commission.

What’s the catch? There aren’t any. The verification process and money transfer won’t last more than 15 minutes here. The interface is intuitively simple and user-friendly, that’s why even a layman user will be able to operate without hindrance.

Having established an office in Ghana, Chatex plans to extricate banks and extortionate money transfer services from all over the continent. Next step would probably be Uganda, where the banking system has run rampant. In Uganda, every year relatives send home about $700 million, and almost $70 million of that total are charged by third-party service providers.

Judging upon the current trends of pervasive smartphone penetration, it can easily be said that mobile solutions such as Chatex are on their way to fit a whole set of financial operations into the user’s pocket. Africa needs such services that will ease people lives and eliminate the limits local banks and third-party services set up. Chatex avoided the well-trodden path of expansion and no one will regret. It has started a new chapter in the African market, aiming to ‘make Africa great again’.

Empirechain

EmpireChain is now offering people a unique chance to enter the crypto space with confidence and start earning profits with little to no experience. The platform has introduced an innovative peer-to-peer crypto exchange feature that will break many boundaries, and open many doors for people who previously felt like they didn’t have enough money to invest in crypto.

In many African countries where people face a lack of online payment sources, EmpireChain will fill a big gap in the market by allowing easy online payment access to all users. By empowering a new generation of traders from all across the world, EmpireChain will diversify the cryptocurrency market with users who bring new dynamics to the table, thus becoming a stepping stone for the evolution of crypto.

Empirechain MabhenaEmpireChain founder Elson Mabhena has been proactively involved in the blockchain and crypto space since 2014.

He is passionate about helping people enter the crypto space and aims to spread his knowledge, skills, and his expertise to a large number of future crypto experts. Over the years, he noticed limitations in the crypto space that stopped some people from investing in cryptocurrency and making a profit. These limitations range from lack of money to be in a geographical location where reliable online payment options are not available, and many more. This gave Mabhena the idea to create a platform that is not only available to users from all across the globe but also allows them to exchange crypto, create a community and forge friendships with crypto enthusiasts.

A spokesperson for EmpireChain made an official statement for the press: “EmpireChain is an easy and innovative solution to the limitations and challenges that come with making a profit from cryptocurrency. For a long time, cryptocurrency has only been available to those who have a large amount of funds to invest, or those who have reliable online payment and crypto platforms available to them. With EmpireChain, a large demographic of people from many parts of the world will finally have access to crypto trading. They will also be able to take advantage of the peer-to-peer exchange feature to easily buy and sell currency.”

The spokesperson further explained the peer-to-peer exchange feature “Our peer-to-peer currency exchange feature is a profitable opportunity for traders who want to earn money daily by exchanging crypto or fiat on their own rates. EmpireChain gives users the freedom to use their trading skills to maximize their profits, which means ordinary people with no crypto background can enter the platform. By forming a community with like-minded traders, users can increase their trading knowledge while creating long-term business relationships that will be highly beneficial for them.”

With Arbitrage trading and convenient payments in local currencies, EmpireChain is also protected by Escrow to ensure that all users get their payments on time, without any delays or hassle. Furthermore, the company is also offering a unique giveaway for new users.

During its Pre-launch offer, EmpireChain is giving away free Shiba Inu coins to users who register on the company website and verify their details. This gives new users an opportunity to kickstart their crypto journey and start earning profits from the very first day.
