Jack Dorsey Backed TBD Partners with Chipper Cash to Expand in Africa

  • The business has announced plans to increase its footprint across 40 African nations.
  • Block, which TBD is a subsidiary of, was co-founded by Dorsey, the former CEO of Twitter.

In an effort to facilitate more international commerce in Africa, TBD, a digital payment business backed by Jack Dorsey, has established a collaboration with Chipper Cash. The business has announced plans to increase its footprint across 40 African nations.

Block, which TBD is a subsidiary of, was co-founded by Jack Dorsey, the former CEO of Twitter. In an effort to get an edge over rivals, the business has teamed up with Chipper Cash, a prominent African payment provider, to gain access to new markets.

Strategic Expansion

According to Bloomberg, TBD CEO Mike Brock recently spoke in Ghana, where he emphasized the need of expanding the company’s international network. The fact that TBD has access to digital assets is a standout advantage compared to its rivals. Users of the platform may convert cryptocurrency to fiat money or send cryptocurrency straight to another user’s wallet.

The direct value may also be held in dollars, stablecoins, or Bitcoin (BTC) by the receiver. Brock claims that the template combines more conventional and cutting-edge forms of payment.

Moreover, users’ increased crypto asset quantities have unlocked speedier cross-border payments made possible by blockchain technology, which has been used in numerous places. Companies aiming to increase their market share among young investors have flooded African markets with crypto and digital payment solutions in the last two years.

Furthermore, the San Francisco-based chipper cash has over 5 million users who can transfer money across 21 African nations. As inflation soars in several African nations, the idea of TBD that permits payments in digital assets is enticing to the continent’s youth.
