According to Prince Henry Erimodafe, CEO of Abrod and Founder of the AfricanHub, the African Diaspora is crucial in harnessing the continent’s economic potential.

This blend of financial resources and expertise sets the stage for a robust and equitable growth trajectory across Africa.

A highlight of the conference was the focused discussion on compliance of digital finance, moderated by Bilal Bin Saqib MBE. Among panelists were: Alena Yudina is AML Officer and a founder of GW Capital, the Swiss regulated digital asset exchange and escrow, Jürg Baltensperger, Managing director of JayBee AG, Switzerland, Alex Pavlov, Daniel Huber is CEO and Founder of A.DNA Data Ltd, Switzerland, Founder of Kauri.Finance and Kauri One, Estonia.
The panel delved into a rich discussion about the evolving landscape of digital finance, drawing from the extensive experience of its speakers, all of whom have been immersed in the cryptocurrency sector since 2017. A pivotal moment came when Alex Pavlov, Founder of Kauri.Finance and Kauri One, conducted a quick poll in the room asking the audience if everyone has a wallet. Reflecting on the panel’s insights, Pavlov remarked, “It turns out, not everyone is in crypto yet; even at the fintech event, less than 50% of the guests have a crypto wallet as if it were something new, especially in light of questions about ETFs. This underscores the significant potential that still exists. It can also be good news for new products, such as Web3Bank Kauri.Finance, if they are designed to be simple, user-friendly, and safe gateways into the world of crypto.” From the compliance angle, we have all the guidelines in place, be it from the FATF or the Swiss regulatory perspective.
