So where exactly is Nigeria’s fintech industry going?



Nigerian fintech startups, Cowrywise and PiggyVest, recently began assigning virtual account numbers to their users causing some people to assume that they are transforming into digital banks. But they are not, at least not yet.

So where exactly is Nigeria’s fintech industry going? We tried to answer this at TC Townhall: Fintech 2.0.

Some snippets from our panel:
