In early March, some of the blockchain’s brightest experts joined with representatives from the financial and legal technology sectors to discuss Blockchain adoption. The event did not take place in London or San Francisco, but in Johannesburg in South Africa.

 

The fourth edition of the Blockchain Africa conference held at Microsoft headquarters took place in Africa. Most African countries have faced economic problems, corruption and wars. But the use of Blockchain technology could change the game and have a huge impact on the economy and African society.

Blockchain technology is of interest to a large number of African companies
There is still a lag compared to encryption centers in Europe, but companies specializing in Blockchain technology in Sudan, Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya are growing more and more. BitHub Africa, based in Nairobi, offers its services to local start-ups. The company provides consulting services to organizations interested in deploying Blockchain solutions in Africa.

In South Africa, there is the Blockchain Academy offering training on crypto-currencies and Blockchain technology to local entrepreneurs. Other companies have also emerged in Sudan and Nigeria.

 

Look at real issues
To date, the adoption of Blockchain has been relatively weak in Africa. In addition, new uses of this technology are addressing real social, economic and political problems affecting hundreds of millions of people every day.

One of the main advantages of this technology is that it is decentralized and transparent. It thus makes it possible to fight effectively against corruption. In the last elections in Sierra Leone, the Swiss company Agora exploited the power of Blockchain to ensure a fair count of votes. On the other hand, cryptocurrencies are also useful for the economy.

CEO AfrikaTech

Comme beaucoup de personnes j’ai connu l’Afrique à travers des stéréotypes : l’Afrique est pauvre, il y a la guerre, famine… Je suis devenu entrepreneur pour briser ces clichés et participer à la construction du continent. J’ai lancé plusieurs entreprises dont Kareea (Formation et développement web), Tutorys (Plate-forme de e-learning), AfrikanFunding (Plate-forme de crowdfunding). Après un échec sur ma startup Tutorys, à cause d’une mauvaise exécution Business, un manque de réseau, pas de mentor, je suis parti 6 mois en immersion dans l’écosystème Tech au Sénégal. J’ai rencontré de nombreux entrepreneurs passionnés, talentueux et déterminés. A mon retour sur Paris je décide de raconter leur histoire en créant le média AfrikaTech. L'objectif est de soutenir les entrepreneurs qui se battent quotidiennement en Afrique en leur offrant la visibilité, les connaissances, le réseautage et les capitaux nécessaires pour réussir. L'Afrique de demain se construit aujourd'hui ensemble. Rejoignez-nous ! LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/boubacardiallo
