The case for L2s in Africa with thinkDecade

The case for L2s in Africa with thinkDecade
thinkDecade joins Miss Purple on this episode to explore the case for L2s in Africa. In The Great Promise episode, a case was made about how crypto is a technology that promises financial inclusion and economic participation in a manner and scale never before seen for the everyday African. Unfortunately, this promise is threatened with challenges like transaction fees on L1 blockchains like Ethereum and Bitcoin. This episode continues the conversation by presenting how L2s such as Optimism are helping bring the Great Promise back on track.  The episode also briefly touches on Optimism's vast ecosystem and how it offers opportunities in the form of retroactive public good funding and ecosystem grants to people who provide value and build in the Op ecosystem. This means that if you are a developer who is building on Optimism, you can apply for grants to help fund your project. Additionally, if you are providing value to the Optimism ecosystem in some other way, such as by writing blog posts or tutorials, you can also apply for retroactive public good funding. This is a great way to support the development of the Optimism ecosystem and to get rewarded for your contributions. The Optimism ecosystem is currently undergoing a great deal of experimentation with its governance and superchain thesis. We strongly advise you to keep an eye on this ecosystem.  Thank you for tuning in. If you enjoyed this episode, please leave us a rating/review.

The Great Promise : Crypto & Africa with thinkDecade & Abidemi
thinkDecade and Abidemi bring you an interesting episode today "The Great Promise: Crypto & Africa". In this episode, we delve into the vast landscapes of Africa to explore a revolution that's unfolding—one powered by the disruptive technology of cryptocurrency. We uncover how this emerging force defies borders, challenges conventions, and carries the great promise of rewriting Africa's narrative within it. The transformative power of cryptocurrency is poised to transcend barriers, reshape economies, and unlock the continent's boundless potential. We take a step back in time to understand the historical context of financial exclusion in Africa and the role of the fiat system in perpetuating economic disparity. We explore the challenges presented by fiat money, such as inflation, devaluation, and manipulation, and discuss how they've impeded the continent's progress. Next, we delve into the promise of crypto for Africa, touching upon three key themes. First, we discuss the idea of "Fix the Money, Fix Africa", elaborating on Bitcoin's transformative power as hard, sound money, and how it offers a solution to the negative impacts of inflation and manipulation of fiat money. Second, we examine "An Internet of Boundless Value", introducing the concept and potential of Web3 and Ethereum. We look at the development of decentralized applications (dApps) and their real-world implications for Africa.  However, it's not all smooth sailing. We highlight the challenges posed by scalability issues and high transaction fees, the contradiction between the promise of crypto, and the reality of high transaction costs.  Thank you for tuning in.
