Tingo Inc. (OTC: TMNA) is a digital service agri-fintech technology
company focused on foundation-level agriculture and related financial services in Africa. The company aims to be Africa’s leading agri-fintech player, transforming rural farming communities to connect through its proprietary platform to meet their complete needs – from inputs and agronomy to off take and marketplace – and deliver sustainable income in an impactful way. The company’s vision is to build complete digitally inclusive ecosystems that promote financial
inclusion and deliver disruptive micro-finance solutions, empower societies, produce social upliftment in rural communities and open international opportunities.
Tingo believes that a truly connected world will help contribute to a better global society. The company’s core focus areas are telecoms, financial services/fintech and agritech. Tingo’s goal is to provide a best-in-class customer experience, support the domestic economies of its host countries and support technological and ﬁnancial inclusion to end the poverty premium. Through this, Tingo hopes to deliver attractive returns to shareholders while investing in the long-term
future of the company and its subsidiaries.
Global climate change is challenging sustainable production and food security. Tingo’s strategy and market execution provide an opportunity for Africa to be a core focal point to solve a number of key areas of concern, including food security, gender equality, financial inclusion and poverty alleviation, to name a few. Disruption of micro finance through the use of DeFi-based stable coins and smart contracts will give agri-communities access to capital markets-driven digital finance
solutions that make them more competitive and sustainable economically, striking a good balance of returns between digital asset providers and Tingo as the service partner. This innovation will deliver significant access to much needed finance at ‘Grassroot’ levels, delivering tangible social upliftment and GDP growth in the African markets served by Tingo.
Tingo Mobile, with more than nine million subscribers, is Nigeria’s leading technology and device-as-a-service platform aimed at accelerating digital commerce, especially in the country’s agritech and fintech verticals. The company helps farmers acquire mobile phones through a unique leasing plan, connecting them to mobile and data networks through its own virtual mobile network. Tingo also connects farmers to markets, services and resources via Nwassa, its digital agritech
marketplace platform that commenced operations in 2020. The company has also launched a beta version of TingoPay – a B2B and B2C fintech app aimed at providing financial services to users inside and outside of the agriculture value chain. Among the services offered are mobile wallets, payment processing and access to specialist lenders, insurers and pension products.
Tingo will soon announce its innovative blockchain-based solution for use of digital stable coins to empower frictionless trade across borders in Africa. The company’s market-proven model in Nigeria is its core foundation, enabling Tingo to deliver the same service model across Africa to become the continent’s leading agri-fintech business powered through smartphone technology.
The African Continental Free Trade (ACFT) plan will be a key framework to prepare the company to be the leading intra-Africa trading hub for trade flows across Africa in the medium term, when it is likely the agreement will be executed into tangible activity. Tingo is well positioned to easily transform the goals of the ACFT into reality when finally implemented by the African Union and the various African countries that have not signed up.

Blockchain Technology Could Go Mainstream Via Adult Entertainment Industry
Blockchain technology was revolutionary when it was first introduced in 2008 as part of a new digital currency called Bitcoin. Over the past decade, blockchain has provided systems with increased technology, speed and efficiency due to its decentralized nature. Even as cryptocurrency prices have hit historic lows in the past couple of months, several industries are keen on adopting blockchain into their systems.
The adult industry, which is known for being among the first sectors to adopt new technologies, could benefit a great deal from blockchain’s decentralized nature. Estimated to be worth billions of dollars, the adult industry could leverage blockchain’s capabilities to create safe and inclusive adult platforms. Because of its history as an early adopter of new technology, the adult industry presents a major growth opportunity for blockchain.
The sector evolved with the times, transitioning from VHS and Blu-ray to the internet as the technology evolved. Furthermore, it was among the first industries to earn big bucks on the internet, and it continues to earn more than $1
billion per year through internet streaming. As online transactions and the web itself become more decentralized (Web 3), it is only natural that an industry that has been at the forefront of technology adoption will adopt blockchain as well.
