Trading challenges faced by emerging African markets

Building a robust crypto-economy
Prevailing situation

Africa is a continent rich in human capital, talent, entrepreneurial stamina and mineral resources and is home to one of the fastest growing middle classes in the world estimated at around 350 million. Despite the progress made, Africa is burdened by poor economic leadership, currencies that are difficult to convert and old colonial borders that were drawn for administration rather than economic markets and are inconsistent with the growth of the large commercial markets such as COMESA.

Low banking and insurance penetration affects 70-90% of the unbanked in Africa. This has led to a thriving informal exchange and remittance market which is largely cash driven that enables international commerce. Cash is risky, expensive and limiting in terms of credit growth, financial inclusion and bulk purchases.

Solution

Response to emerging demands for Intra-Africa Trade Integration

There is a compelling need to integrate all these nations and bring them into a common intra-Africa trading and financial platform. ICM is currently building the world’s largest offline & online blockchain backed by a Digital bank or financial network which will be the key foundation in building the cross-border ecosystem in parallel to the continuing activities to build the crypto economy. ICM shall collaborate with other logistics players such as transportation, smart contracts legal documentation, customs and tax authorities, warehousing, standards and quality certification, fuel, accommodation etc. ICM will be able to circulate within this ecosystem at least eight times before exiting to other currencies making ICM the first truly real life usable currency.

Our Goal

To transform, simplify and democratize transactional banking and trade banking in Africa and emerging markets.

ICM achievable goal is to be the pioneering and premier cross border trade crypto currency, that enabled international commerce intra- Africa & between Africa and its trading partners.

Critical to this goal is to roll out a Crypto Bank or Financial network on the rails of the world’s largest offline and online Blockchain economic ecosystem network. The Bank or Financial network will be interlinked and Interoperable with Banks, Mobile money wallets, crypto currencies, payment service providers, merchant agency payouts, postal corporations aided by proprietary mobile point of sales and partner terminals..
