- Modus Capital is among the many cooperations that realize Africa has the potential to be in the limelight of the fourth Industrial revolution. After years of gradual progression and neglect, Africa has created the same ecosystem it requires to pioneer the next Industrial revolution. Web3 and blockchain use the concept of decentralization which is a shift from Web2. Since most, if only some, African countries are deeply rooted in its concepts, unlike developed countries, it makes the transition to Web3 much simpler.
For centuries, Africa has been considered one of if not the most resource-abundant continents in the world. For years other continents have depended on her for several reasons. They either required raw materials, precious ores, or even trees to some extent. Various continents still depend on Africa to acquire its rich nature. Fortunately, no one expected it to have so much potential within the technological world.
Unfortunately, with other continents sipping from Africa’s states, its natives have been unable to benefit from their resources fully. However, the same state of African countries has made it the perfect candidate for Web3, AI and blockchain technology. One of the biggest news to hit the globe was Africa’s enormous crypto adoption rate which broke records at 1200%.
After missing out on the first three, it is clear that Africa will most likely dominate the fourth Industrial revolution. Due to this, various companies have set their eyes on its untapped potential. In recent news, Modus Capital has set its sights on sub-Saharan Africa to hop on the blockchain wagon that will create waves in the upcoming years.
