In such a situation, he added, the country requires solutions to accomplish its objective of financial freedom. As per the executive, if the platform remains successful in participating in the financial condition of the country via the state-of-the-art technologies offered by the blockchain sector, this will take a significant step in the battle against the discrimination witnessed within the financial industry, according to the executive.
