The Humanity ecosystem

The African Startup League is scheduled to take off on August 8th, and the Humanity protocol is flying right with it. The current market price (at the time of writing) stands at $2.0629, up from $0.0850 at the beginning of June 2022.

The use of the Humanity token started in Nigeria, where the population was paid through the token for performing small community tasks, with an option of receiving fiat. The Humanity protocol signed over 100,000 people in the first month of operation.

Humanity ecosystem is looking to extend the community services to Kenya (already under operation to launch), Uganda, Zambia, South Africa, and Tanzania, among other African countries. Through the African Startup League, this ecosystem will extend to the whole of Africa.

The Humanity token is now available on Pancake Swap through the Binance Smart Chain network.
