Will this SubGov be for the whole continent or for a separate country/es?

For now it is for the whole continent until the individual countries gain enough members to form SG.

Considering the recent news:
Nigeria has become the second largest bitcoin market in the world after the United States.

Nigerians are often restricted from using international platforms such as PayPal, which do not allow transfers to Nigeria, and local banks set caps on international transactions and charge high transaction fees due to dollar deficits.

The growing uncertainty and volatility around Nigerian Naira, in which the exchange rate against the US dollar is becoming increasingly controversial, has given rise to bitcoin trading in the country.

Peer-to-peer (p2p) platforms (https://youtu.be/aZQ-9rZG0-w), which are decentralized platforms that directly connect buyers and sellers without the need for third party authorization, are the most popular way to buy bitcoin in Africa. because users don’t need to worry about cryptocurrency regulation from government.

Africa is a huge region that has more potential than any other region on the planet
Also, technological backwardness (at the moment) turns into an advantage, allowing you to jump over ineffective stages of technology development
It seems that the African department, one of the best deals in Free TON for recent time

In full support for this motion. In my opinion including Africa in such a huge decentralized and globalized currency system will benefit Africans and whoever wants to do business.

We need this for Africa. I fully support this proposal

Тема Африки интересно, но возникает много вопросов. Из какой страны начинаете, какой политика в этой стране крипта валютам? Мне кажется лучше начать из Африканских стран Марокко, Тунис и Алжира. Потому что я вижу что есть сообщества развивающиеся в Франции. Значит выделена для Сообществу Франции ресурсы и в этой стране больше часть иммигранты из Марокко, Тунис и Алжира. В этом направление можно создать ценности для этой аудитории. Например, денежный переводы, VoIP телефония, телефония через Телеграмм и много другие сервисы. Если эти ценности сможем пере направит в FreeTon, будет больше пользы всему сообществу.
