According to Sango’s website, the government intends to launch the program during a July 3 event in which the president, members of his cabinet and industry experts will discuss the physical and digital infrastructure needed for the CAR to enter the crypto space, as well as the legal framework for the country.
The Sango project’s plans include building a “legal crypto hub” aimed at attracting businesses and global crypto-enthusiasts, expanding the adoption of Bitcoin in the country, and creating a virtual “crypto island” — a special economic zone in the metaverse that will seemingly have an equivalent space in the physical world. According to Sando, the CAR plans to have a dedicated legal framework for crypto in place by the end of 2022.
“The ambitious strategy to quickly build a successful economy can only rely on new technologies that have taken the world by storm and taken money to another level, with Bitcoin as a watchword,” said Touadéra
