The president of the Central African Republic, Faustin-Archange Touadera, posted on Twitter talking about the launch of “Sango”, the first major cryptocurrency initiative. The launch of this crypto hub comes shortly after legislatures in the country approved Bitcoin as legal tender through a unanimous vote.

The CAR government noted that the Sango platform would be the “first crypto initiative” in the country. The platform is named after the second official language used in the country. The platform was proposed by the National Assembly with the president’s support.

The presidential statement says that “the construction of the first legal crypto hub in the heart of Africa will improve the crypto experience by taking Bitcoin adoption to the next level, potentially bringing the most unconventional space in the world.”

The president also said that Bitcoin’s adoption offered many opportunities to develop and transform the country. He said that crypto was a way to change the country’s future. “Sango can usher in a new economic era with enormous potential, which neither Africa nor the rest of the world have imagined.”

The president also said he wished that the Sango project would boost accessibility to cryptocurrencies. It would create global attention to how crypto presents an opportunity for a country to boost its economic performance.

“The formal economy is no longer an option,” the presidency added. He also mentioned the decentralized nature of the crypto space, saying that platforms like Sango planned to promote a competitive environment, while tackling bureaucracy.
