Cryptocurrency adoption has been on the increase globally, with several countries recognising the potentials within crypto. Kenya has not been left behind with the Central Bank of Kenya announcing its decision to switch to bitcoin as a reserve currency. In his address to the nation, the Central Bank of Kenya Governor, Patrick Njoroge noted that the "decision to shift to Bitcoin is both tactical and logical."
