Blockchain Africa Conference 2021 organisers, Bitcoin Events, have announced that due to the global coronavirus pandemic and restrictions on travel and the uncertainty of the current environment, the 7th annual conference, will be hosted online this year.
The event comes as collective sentiment about blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies continues to rise, along with meaningful implementations of the technology in both the public and private sectors. The industry seems to be moving towards a more mature phase, less susceptible to hype and speculation.
Blockchain technology is rapidly maturing as companies look to leverage its power to develop and implement robust, enterprise-ready solutions. The conference will explore this ongoing evolution and take a deep dive into the factors pushing blockchain and cryptocurrencies from hype to mainstream adoption.
Blockchain has massive potential to address many of the existing challenges with transactions and doing business in Africa. Bitcoin ownership, usage and volume of trades in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies has seen a massive surge in Africa, with Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya leading the pack.
Africa looks set to witness even more explosive growth in use and adoption of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in 2021 and beyond.
An impressive list of speakers include:
Well-known South African entrepreneur and venture capitalist, John Lombela, will lead the proceedings as the Master of Ceremonies.
In addition to global experts, the conference will feature the usual opportunities to visit vendor exhibitions and connect with professionals across several industries. Blockchain Africa Conference 2021 will provide an opportunity for thought-leaders and pioneers in the industry to learn, network and collaborate and gain insight into cryptocurrencies and blockchain’s utility and expectations for the future.
