The Wolof Empire
By Benny & Genesis
Although we use dollar bills, in other places of the world they use different currencies. For example, in the kingdom Mali they use cowries and the reason im metioning this is because the Wolof empire is quite far from Mali but they use the same currencies. Although they are far from each other they use the type of payment and it relates to the paragraph about trading because one of the reason they have the same currency is because they had to pay each other and it would be convineint to have the same currency so it would be easier to trade.
