Driving web3 adoption

People living in emerging markets understand the potential of crypto and web3 to change lives. Their appetite is driven by their need to solve real-world, everyday problems. Connecting them to the internet is the first step in making this a reality.

Isizwe is a marquee case study to demonstrate how practical, everyday, utilitarian problems - like the delivery of internet access in emerging markets - can be solved with the adoption of a crypto-centric mindset.

How It Works

Isizwe funds the deployment of fibre internet infrastructure in underserved communities in emerging markets.

Isizwe uses VulaCoin, a Solana-based wallet and stable coin pinned to internet time, to facilitate network access and micro pay-as-you-go transactions.

Isizwe has partnered with infrastructure providers with proven methods for deploying fibre at affordable prices ($0.34/day per user)

Isizwe provides publishers with access to emerging markets and the ability to run advertising campaigns on the Isizwe network. They gain access to a previously inaccessible audience: consumers experiencing fast and uncapped internet on a sustainable basis for the first time.

Growing market

The highest growth in key audience segments is found in informal markets.

"I've been working as a channel manager for Unilever for 6 years and I'm frustrated. We need to get closer to our consumers by selling into the townships and cutting out the costs of formal retailers. "
