EXPERTS SOUTH AFRICA Blockchain Africa: Empower Africa for global competition 3 weeks ago Szarlot Post Views: 86 The ninth annual Blockchain Africa Conference is set to take place in Sandton, South Africa, from Thursday, 16 to Friday, 17, 2023, after two years of being held virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The conference will bring together local and international experts in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry to discuss how the technology is transforming business operations on the African continent and across the globe. It will also spotlight the best in blockchain and cryptocurrency innovation and disruption from across the globe with a spotlight on the African continent. In recent years, the adoption of blockchain technology has gained traction in South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, and Ghana, resulting in more efficient and lower-cost cross-border payments to facilitate African businesses conducting trade abroad. This shift is due to an increase in global ratification of the technology, with approximately 44% of the top 100 public companies, including tech giant Amazon, Tencent, Nike, and McDonald’s. The most significant appeal of blockchain technology in an African context is that it is both cost-effective and efficient, for which there is a real need and can potentially accelerate the continent’s socio-economic growth. Bitcoin events director Sonya Kuhnel stated that much could be said about blockchain’s impact on Africa’s developing economies, including its inability to recognise tribal lines or national borders. Instead, blockchain provides us with tools to bridge and connect communities, share value and ideas across borders, and empower a new generation of young African voices. The African content holds endless possibilities that can be directed at advancing socio-economic growth through blockchain. This year, organisers want to reiterate that Africa is ready for business. They plan to continue bringing together top experts to captivate and educate a global audience and put Africa on a global scale. The exciting line-up of key speakers and experts includes the likes of John Kamara, founder of Adanian Labs and Afyarekod and chairman of the African Blockchain Centre, Rene Reinsberg, co-founder of Celo and president of Celo Foundation, founder of Stake Capital Group, and Curve core team member Julien Bouteloup, the executive director of the Interledger Foundation, Briana Marbury, and the CEO and founder of Eight BV, Michaël van de Poppe. The conference is set to host panel discussions on topics such as the opportunities and challenges of Blockchain in healthcare and the future of stablecoins over the global financial market. In addition to the panel discussions, guests can look forward to fireside chats, keynote speakers, exhibitions, workshops, an exclusive opening night dinner reserved for VIPs, a cocktail and networking event to be held on the rooftop terrace, and a closing night networking event that will be open to all. The Blockchain Africa Conference has attracted over 9 000 attendees from 160 countries since its inception in 2015, showcasing the best in blockchain and cryptocurrency innovation and disruption from across the globe with a spotlight on the African continent.
