Inclusive Digital Ecosystems of the Future

In this white paper, Inclusive Digital Ecosystems of the Future, by FIBR (partnership between BFA and Mastercard Foundation), the likely effects of the rise of digital superplatforms on the digital finance ecosystem is discussed. This paper describes and explores the phenomenon from different angles in order to explore potential implications for Africa in particular and generally the digital finance ecosystem.

David Porteous also delivered a webinar on 9th May 2019, The Rise of Digital Superplatforms, based on the findings of this paper and updated with recent developments. You can watch the webinar here.
