The advancement of digital currencies also offers a considerable number of opportunities. If well exploited, companies and various organizations could create alternative and sustainable sources of revenue. However, to increase these possibilities, the economies of third world countries should adopt the integration of digital currencies.
Why hasn't it been done yet?
A key problem is that developing countries have low production rates and the labor market is in trouble. Many times the resources needed for production are left for import.
The upper class deploys the necessary tools and supports the lower class by entrusting them with manual labor. This then results in a change in the distribution of ownership of wealth.
To break this cycle, while this may not result in the fair sharing of wealth, the reliance on digital currencies for small business owners could be normalized in the near future.
For dominant assets like Bitcoin, companies could leverage the transparent and decentralized model of the blockchain by employing crypto-asset payment options on their platform.
For businesses that don't yet have an online presence, Bitcoin ATMs and trader apps could come in handy.
Another booming channel is the implementation of foreign cryptocurrency-related initiatives that seek to offset their companies in a Crypto-friendly destination.
Developing countries can accelerate economic growth by carefully exploiting this estimated billion-dollar opportunity.
Possibilities repressed in developed countries
With countries like the United States cracking down on digital currency initiatives, Crypto-friendly countries could benefit a lot in exchange for tax benefits and so much more.
Cryptocurrency investment companies are another independent method of creating wealth among citizens of developing countries.
Aside from cryptocurrency trading, which is already becoming a dominant practice among a large number of millennials in developing countries, the investment practices that allow stakeholders to invest independently their own funds could help flatten the poverty rate.
This would be particularly useful in countries such as Nigeria and South Africa, where numerous Ponzi schemes have flourished in recent times.
One notable event was the arrival of MMM (Mavrodi Mundial Moneybox), a Ponzi scheme that ran throughout 2016 through 2018, promising Nigerians strong returns after investing and referring users to the platform.
The platform later collapsed shortly after the death of its founder. The Nigerian Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) reported that the platform lost a whopping $ 49,3 million.
To date, unofficial sources say Nigeria, Ghana and other major African countries are still committed to investing in such programs. If major cryptocurrency investment firms were to strategically open companies in different parts of the country, there could be a significant economic boost.
