- In a continent where cost so often is cited as a prohibitive factor in providing basic needs, blockchain technology and its many expressions hold so much potential for the future
- Twenty-five countries in Africa have banned cryptocurrency
- Morocco most recently moved from an absolute ban on cryptocurrency to revealing they will soon launch a Cryptocurrency regulation bill

He states, "Without a country-owned and led food security policy, global, regional, and national economic growth would face challenges and additional expenses."
