Financial Times Recognizes Zone as One of Africa’s Fastest-Growing Companies in 2023

We are thrilled to announce that we have earned a prestigious spot on the Financial Times’ list of Africa’s Fastest Growing Companies in 2023. This significant recognition underscores our unwavering commitment to transforming the payment landscape across the continent and beyond.

As the first blockchain company in Africa and one of the few Nigerian fintechs on this prestigious list, we have successfully carved a niche for ourselves in Africa’s rapidly evolving financial sector. The annual Financial Times and Statista’s Fastest Growing Companies in Africa award recognises top-performing companies in the private sector that have demonstrated impressive growth and made a significant contribution to their respective industries.

Our inclusion in this list is a good indication of the unwavering commitment of our team to fulfilling our mission and supporting our stakeholders.

Since our successful transition from a Banking as a Service provider to a Payment Infrastructure company in November 2022 and our success in obtaining a payment switching license from the Central Bank in Nigeria, we have recorded impressive milestones in building out our decentralised payment network and connecting various financial services providers. With over 20 of the biggest commercial banks, Fintechs and OFIs in Africa already connected to our Layer-1blockchain network, we are laying the rails for a world where digital payments are frictionless, borderless and compatible with every form and store of money.

As we celebrate this achievement, we are more eager than ever about our mission to connect every monetary store of value using blockchain and our promise to enable reliable, frictionless and universally interoperable payments for Africa and the rest of the world.
