“The future requires leaders as change drivers that can envision and implement innovative ideas through the optimal utilization of advanced technologies to achieve cost savings and improved financial services. I believe that the importance and significance of DeFi (decentralized financial) services within emerging markets has become more apparent given the pandemic and the times of uncertainty we have found ourselves in. It is evident that Saukibit is impacting lives by providing cryptocurrency and blockchain services as a step forward to democratizing financial services in emerging markets,” said Emmanuel .
AfroTech World is a virtual conference and continues to be one of the largest multicultural tech conferences in the United States, bringing together engineers, venture capitalists, recruiters, technologists, and culture enthusiasts from all over the world. It is the definitive conference that brings leaders in technology and business together to exchange ideas and build a strong Black tech community.
SaukiBit’s recognition for Greatest Social Impact, comes as a result of the company’s commitment to building the bridge to the future of finance in emerging markets. The company is building products deeply committed to social causes, fundamentally driven by change, and passionately working towards leaving their corner of the world better than they found it.
In addition, the company is currently participating in Tachyon, the Consesys Labs accelerator for early-stage blockchain and web 3.0 startups. Engagement in a Conseneys backed accelerator, has opened great doors for the organization to be advised by the world’s leading blockchain leaders
