Jouahri further added that the application of fintech and blockchain technologies would help Morocco to achieve its goal to provide “all individuals and businesses a fair access to formal financial products and services […] in order to promote economic and social inclusion.” Jouahri said:

“Blockchain is by far the most disruptive technology of this decade.”
