WETHIO is the first blockchain built and based in Africa. Unlike most blockchains, it incentivizes cooperation among crypto miners by introducing a reward strategy for miners to cooperate in order to secure the greatest collective payout.

Zynecoin is designed to improve Africa’s economic standing and support African innovators and entrepreneurial ecosystems as well as humanitarian initiatives. By introducing a digital currency powered on its own blockchain “Wethio” in a decentralized ecosystem, Zynecoin’s innovative model seeks to improve transparency, security and enable smoother transactions across borders.
