Sam Conner and Andre van Zyl discuss Clic.World
02nd March, 2021
Clic.World is creating an end-to-end community centric financial based eco-system in Africa using the open and inclusive Stellar network.
Sam Conner and Andre van Zyl (co-founder of Clic.World) discuss Clic.World's six-year journey, from inception to big plans for 2021 - the year when Andre believes the handbrake will be released and everything is going to happen. The discussion starts with a promise of sharing Uganda's Big Gorilla Coffee and a declaration from Andre that this coffee powers Clic and is not for amateurs.
The discussion quickly moves to Africa and the need to bring technology that supports and makes more robust the African model of social banking rather than trying to force the monolithic banking model that works in other areas of the globe. Andre explains his excitement when he first read the Bitcoin white paper and how he now believes Stellar built on that white paper and made possible a solution to the financial problems that Clic.World is working to solve.
The podcast ends with recent successes with African regulators and an exciting roadmap with partnerships that put Clic at the financial crossroad for modernizing social banking across all of Africa.
