In February 2024, The Blockchain Builders Association Ghana hosted the team at Stellar Development Foundation, led by Dixon Denelle in Accra, who is the CEO of the Stellar development foundation in February.


The Stellar Development Foundation is a nonprofit organisation based in San Francisco. They are building a common financial platform, designed to be open and accessible to everyone. Their mission is open source financial access for all. 


Stellar has great uses cases in Ghana and in Africa including Cross border payments, smart contracts and remittances.


LemFi is allowed to trade again in Ghana after being forbidden by the Bnak of Ghana due to a lack of an official license to operate in the country. This has been a few months in the making and can now deliver their services in Ghana. 

LemFi is a remittance platform that competes with the likes of TapTap Send, WorldRemit and Sendwave.

Dr Bauwmia, whos’ currently the vice president of Ghana, who is running as an NPP leader for the 2024 elections in Ghana, has promised to scrap e-levy and emissions tax if he wins.
