Leading Nigerian online mall, Konga has debunked report published in some media that it has partnered with a firm to boost The Billion Coin (TBC), one of the global digital currencies (cryptocurrencies) acceptance in the country. The report is titled “Firm partners Jumia, Konga to boost TBC acceptance”.
In a statement released by Konga, it maintained that it is using technology to meet its business challenges and has not partnered with any firm on TBC acceptance.
“Konga Online Shopping Limited’s attention has been drawn to a media publication making the rounds and captioned Firm partners Jumia, Konga to boost TBC acceptance. Konga want to make it clear that we are not in partnership with the firm and we find this headline misleading and untrue.
“Konga as a technology company is pivotal in using technology to meet business challenges as we constantly prove our commitment to deepening commerce and trade in Africa by supporting and empowering businesses but we are not in partnership with the said firm in this regard. We therefore advise the firm to desist in misleading the populace as we would not hesitate to take legal actions if they fail to give accurate presentation of what obtains.” Statement reads
Konga launched in July 2012 with a mission, ‘To Become the Engine of Commerce and Trade in Africa’. The company has recorded very rapid growth and in just 3 years, konga.com has built an operation that leads the market in customer satisfaction, merchandise shipped and innovation.
