JOHANNESBURG/ABIDJAN (Reuters) – When COVID-19 hit Ivory Coast, Bonaventure Kra, who works at an import-export business, began to worry. Handling hard cash all day was a risk. Queuing in crowded bank branches exposed him to infection.

Then, in the midst of the pandemic, French telecommunications giant Orange ORAN.PA launched an entirely digital bank – its first full banking venture in Africa.

“Going back to cash would be like travelling back in time,” Kra said in the country’s commercial capital, Abidjan. “I intend to use it permanently.”

Africa’s mobile phone operators are ramping up plans to bring banking to millions of Africans, in some cases for the first time, after the coronavirus crisis caused a surge in use of digital financial

The BTS Mobile Game BTS Universe Story Is Here

September 27, 2020 | technology | No Comments

On Thursday, a second BTS game was released — this time called BTS Universe Story. The game is only available on Android and the Apple app store. It’s based on an ongoing storyline that has been told through music videos, books, performances, and songs since 2015.

Fans have been decoding and analyzing the hundreds of theories that have come out of the “universe” since then. Now, there is a game that will allow fans to immerse themselves in it.

It also comes with another function that allows players to create their own storylines using the BTS characters.

The app’s creators intended for fans to create their own versions of the universe’s story, but instead some fans have been re-creating memes and iconic moments from TV and the internet.

For example, the meteor/meatier meme got the game treatment and so did many others.

Within the game, you can not only dress
