Apollo Foundation is aiming to have Apollo all-in-one currency (APL) to be adopted as national currency, first in Africa then beyond. That means a national government, institutions, merchants, and consumers widely use APLs for economic activity including transactions, remittances, sales, deposits, and storage of value.

That’s a tall order because it will require a historic shift in monetary policies, as well as greater smartphone adoption. But it’s achievable in the African continent where there are a few hyper-inflationary economies.

Steve McCullah, director of business development, said:

Big strides taking place with Apollo Africa. Great Botswana trip [earlier this month] and big meetings planned for the near future. All while new Decentralized Apollo Banks are going up. Apollo is determined to boast the most aggressive Africa cryptocurrency initiative.

Here are inflation rates in the region:

  • Zimbabwe (75%)
  • Sudan (44%)
  • Liberia (23%)
  • Sierra Leone (17%)
  • Angola (17%)

In this economic environment, many producers stop manufacturing goods (including essential items) because they won’t get paid in a currency that has economic value.
