“If we start using cryptocurrencies, it will help the country. The cedi is always depreciating against the dollar. With these cryptocurrencies, we don’t have to deal with any Fiat currency. The value for all currencies in the world will be the same, so businesses can help stabilize the Ghanaian economy,” she is quoted to have said by Joy Business.

Dr Kumah pointed out the recent happenings in the global economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic, tensions in Europe has become necessary for a decentralized financial system aimed at revolutionizing transactions.

“Now, money is directed by software. So, the whole world economy is based on this global programmable. Very soon, all the world will stop using cash and everything will be virtualized,” She added.
