Web3 platform partners with self-custody wallet to broaden crypto adoption in Africa

Cassava Network — an African Web3 platform focused on nonfungible tokens (NFTs), gaming and loyalty rewards — has launched the third version of its platform, featuring integration with noncustodial smart contract wallet UniPass, allowing users to use email addresses instead of seed phrases and gas.

In a move to onboard Africans from Web2 to Web3, the partnership enables users who create Cassava accounts to automatically sign up on UniPass, and have access to holding, sending and receiving on-chain digital assets across multiple Ethereum Virtual Machine blockchains.

In an interview with Cointelegraph, Cassava Network co-founder Mouloukou Sanoh explained how African users and businesses can use the new version to enter the Web3 space.

“With Cassava v3, we have made it easy for African users to interact with their favorite Web2 and Web3 brands. As users interact with these brands, they earn both CB Coins and other on-chain rewards specified by partners.”

Sanoh added that while CB Coins — the reward tokens used in the network — exist off-chain at the moment, users will be able to swap them for on-chain assets soon. CB can then be used to purchase concert tickets and mystery boxes on the platform.
