So far so good, through the activities of this exchanges, many interested party has gained entry into the cryptocurrency space without much fuss. However, the cryptocurrency space still has more room for growth since it has barely even hit the $1 trillion dollar mark and the reason for this is not a farcry from the distaste of many businesses and investors about the technology.

Use Case

  • A retail store

Hmo is s retail outlet which has many branches scattered around lagos metropolitan city. They noticed lately that most of their customers prefer to patronise a nearby outlet which has incorporated the bitcoin cryptocurrency as a means of payment. They are determined to win the market back and they decided to implement the same technology which the other outlet uses to accept cryptocurrency payment. However, their first foray into the cryptocurrency world wasnt succesful atall as the trader incharge of managing their asset complained of difficulty in reconciling the account balances due to price unpredicability caused by high volatility of the market.
