Aspects that may have sustained the launch

“Africa’s fast-growing digital economy is just in its early days, and it’s forecasted to grow up and to the right for the next couple of years. Together with regional players, EBANX will be a driver to understand the numerous benefits of a digital economy even much faster.”
EBANX further reveals that cloud adoption is quickly penetrating developing countries, even much faster than at first pictured.
