Given the world population is fast closing on 7 billion, the chances of
your idea being unique, while not being zero, are pretty close to it.

I would not lose sleep trying to protect my idea. What has value is not the
idea, it is the execution. MPesa were not the first to have the mobile
money idea. Neither did Facebook have the idea for social networking first.
Nor did google build the first search engine. Nor did Tesla build the first
electric car. And yet they are eating everybody's lunch today.

Put your effort more in execution and improvement. If you do it right
success will be inevitable
