Future developments of ADK
ADK aims to establish an offshore bank by connecting two banks, the Kenya bank “Sumac Microfinance Bank” and the Tanzania bank “Hakika Microfinance Bank”.
In addition, Uganda banks are in the final stages of acquisition, and EU banks are currently applying for licenses.
Once an offshore bank is established, you can open an account online anywhere in the region. (Except for some areas such as Iran)
If that happens, it will finally be an inflow of offshore money.
One more thing! ADK is trying to make ETF the first among virtual currencies.
We aim to be listed on the NSE (Nairobi Stock Exchange).
