I am here to officially introduce myself as a new witness. I am a new backup witness, and I'm just starting to get my feet wet. I am excited to share this announcement with the Steem community and ask for your support and vote. My witness name is “yensesa”, a Steem/Fiat exchanger and witness run by @black-man and #yensesaTeam, with the full support of #teamghana #teamaccra and #teamafrica.
Who or What is Yensesa
Yensesa means Let’s Exchange a word derived from a Ghanaian language called Twi. This is a new Steem/SBD to Fiat exchange service that simply automates the process of exchanging Ghanaian cedi (in Digital Fiat form) for Steem / SBD using mobile money transfer. Currently is being done manually and our solution is going to automate it.
Digital mobile money transfer system is on the rise in Africa. The mobile money transfer system makes it easy for people to cash out paper money conversion of a digital currency from available widespread Kiosks. The issue we are trying to solve is the common practice where Ghanaian Steemians wanting to cash out their Steem / Sbd into local cedis but instead of doing this manually and going through all the struggle of moving it from one exchange to the other and eventually losing money and time in the process, they just use Yensesa and save money and time.
As stated by one of our active supporters and advisor @ackza “We don't have the sort of crazy demand that could overload us yet but it is coming as all of Ghana rushes to signup to Steem. Here we see massive growth potential with 30% of Ghana connected to mobile, 90% connected to a mobile phone which can receive MTN, Vodafone Digital Fiat, so this is a project you should pay attention to. “In simple terms we are becoming the Coinbase of Ghana and Africa."
