The report said that Africa was the smallest cryptocurrency economy of any region under review, having received $105.6 billion worth of cryptocurrency between July 2020 and June 2021.

It added that the Peer to Peer platform is more prominent in Africa than in other regions, and many African cryptocurrency users also rely on P2P platforms for remittances and commercial transactions.
