After covering Zimbabwe, Senegal, South Africa, Ghana, and Nigeria, I have the honor to host a guest from Kenya. Roselyne Wanjiru is the Director of Growth & User Acquisition at Pesabase and an advocate for the digital economy in Kenya.

“Bitcoin does not require an ID, does not require your tax ID, does not require any other major documentation. It just requires you to have an email address and that’s it. And that’s really huge.” – Roselyne Wanjiru
