Tether, the USDT stablecoin issuer, has partnered with African Web3 community-building platform NODO to drive stablecoin education in Africa.

The details

  • The partnership, scheduled for six months, will see NODO educate consumers through online Ask Me Anything (AMA), workshops and question-and-answer sessions.
  • Offline, NODO says it will host roadshows and seminars across major cities.

What they’re saying

Tether CEO Paolo Ardoino said:

“Our main goal is to redefine traditional finance, as we are already doing, and to ensure financial freedom for the underserved, unbanked population, especially in Africa. We are excited to be working with NODO to achieve this.”

NODO’s co-founder Shogo Ishida said:

“Access to finance in Sub-Saharan Africa currently stands at 49%, significantly lower than the global average of 76%. We posit that fostering market expansion and advancing financial literacy across Africa will wield substantial influence in addressing the region’s financial obstacles through education”
