Wala is a startup based in South Africa. The majority of their Ethereum-based transactions are micropayments under $1 to wallet accounts in Uganda, Zimbabwe and South Africa. These transactions are used to buy airtime, data, pay bills or even school fees for kids. Wala plans to expand to 11 more countries and, in the future, is hoping to use different blockchains simultaneously. So far, they’re using mircoraiden to facilitate and then paying the transaction fees for their users out of pocket, but are looking for a better option.
This sounds like a highly impactful and highly visible application for POA Network and the Bridge given that Wala needs a faster and cheaper mechanism for transacting on Ethereum.
Curious if anyone else agrees that this would be an interesting opportunity for POA?
Would POA be willing to partner with or make a donation/investment to fund a pilot version of the Bridge for Wala?
