Ahead of this weeks AfroBitcoin conference in Ghana, Zimbabwe is still the country with the worst performing currency globally with a loss of 75% against the USD since Jan 1, 2022. Followed by Venezuela, Cuba and the Ghanaian cedi on Rank 4 with a depreciation of 57%.
The inflation dashboard shows a similar picture. Zimbabwe leads with an annual inflation of 400%. Ghana is on the 4th place as well with an annual inflation rate of 153%.
