Atsu Davoh and his team are planning to expand Bit Sika into other African countries. They aim to make the app a part of everyday use for African citizens. Even though Jack Dorsey did not invest financially in the project, but he has been a vocal supporter of the Nigerian startup. The company received the first non-Nigerian investment from Microtransaction. The investors believe that Bit Sika made cross-border payments negligible in cost, while also making them auditable and instant.

The use of cryptocurrencies in African countries has been increasing at quite a speed as it solves many problems, including the high-cost cross-border payments. Long-time bitcoin advocate, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, is planning to invest in crypto projects in African countries this year.
