Benkiko is an online micropayments and tokenization platform for Africa. As The Digital Bank for The Digital Economy, Benkiko enables African online shops, content creators and freelancers to get paid easily across borders and offer them avenues to invest.
Benkiko combines an effective superapp approach with ready to use SDKs for developers across Africa to develop solutions for their local market needs and issue tokens for the projects and communities.\
Powered by Stellar, the projects and communities can issue digital tokens/assets for governance, utility or other use cases and become tradable on Stellar DEX as well as AMM.
Benkiko's goal is to enable online platforms and marketplaces to enjoy seamless and affordable payments through easy to use SDKs, and enable users of these apps to also get to invest in them through tokens and digital assets.
This democratizes wealth creation for average Africans who've been locked out of investment opportunities in the legacy financial system.
