Nat Sakimura:<br>
<br>
* Tom raised an issue with FAPI solely concentrating on G20 economy on a April call that we need to start looking at developing economies. e.g., countries with stored value on the phone like m-pesa.<br>
* <a href="https://leveloneproject.org/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">https://leveloneproject.org/</a> has some API for such countries.<br>
* Nat pointed out that although our priority is on EU right now, we should get there eventually and plan that out.<br>
  He has much sympathy with those countries as he grew up in Kenya. Nat also has a connection with the CEO of Taqanu (<a href="https://www.taqanu.com/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">https://www.taqanu.com/</a>), a bank dealing with those market, so we could try to coordinate.<br>
