After honing its offering out of the spotlight for a year, Nigerian startup OneLiquidity has emerged from stealth mode to provide infrastructure for Africa’s booming fintech industry.
The company aims to handle critical backend work like technology, liquidity management and licensing so emerging fintechs can focus on innovating. This allows young startups to scale faster by leveraging OneLiquidity’s infrastructure.
OneLiquidity’s public launch event in Lagos convened industry leaders to discuss trends in African fintech. Speakers like Binance’s regional director noted crypto’s surging role, with Binance dominating most of the continent’s crypto market.
Other speakers included Korapay’s CEO, who emphasised learning from failures on his journey as a serial entrepreneur. “Consistency and failing forward are key,” he told the audience.
Events like this signify the rapid maturation of African fintech, as specialised providers like OneLiquidity emerge to offer targeted backend services. No longer forced to build everything in-house, startups can instead delegate core infrastructure tasks to focus on customers.
With its public debut, OneLiquidity is poised to empower the next wave of African fintech innovators. By handling the plumbing, it allows them to focus on bringing new solutions to market.
