Just before we begin to unveil the Top 10 African Currencies as of Q1 2022, let's first have a little discussion about currency valuation and exchange rates, shall we?


The first thing to keep in mind is that exchange rates are hardly fixed. This is due to the volatile nature of the foreign exchange market, which is characterized by unexpected fluctuations in currency rates as a result of various economic factors.


As you well know, the exchange rate is mainly related to the value of a currency when converting it to another currency. The US dollar is currently the most widely used currency during global trading. This is why we used it as the standard currency. However, the top ten currencies in Africa have the highest value when converted into dollars. Finally, the quote below by Investopedia explains why the exchange rate is an important topic that everyone should care about.


'Exchange rates have a significant impact on corporate operations and profitability. The exchange rate unstability affects not only multinational corporations and large corporations, but also small and medium-sized enterprises, including those operating only in their home countries. While understanding and managing it is considered a price risk. Drainage is a topic of obvious importance to business owners, and investors should be aware of because of the huge impact it can have on their holdings.'
