History of borderless
In November 2021, Crypto Smart announced upscaling to the Algorand blockchain. The upscaling sees a new dimension of Crypto Smart and the different blockchain products that they will be working on.
So as to effectively utilize the Algorand blockchain, Crypto Smart started a systematic teaching process to equip their developers with adequate knowledge of the Algorand blockchain.
Algorand uses Pyteal and Reach for its Dapps which is quite new to some blockchain developers.

Borderless is a haven where Africans are trained to become developers who can build solid infrastructure and innovative ideas for Africa
