The inaugural Africa Blockchain Week will launch from June 28 to July 1, 2021. NexChange Group, a blockchain ecosystem, and venture builder, and MARITA Group, an African conglomerate will form a partnership to co-host this Virtual Summit.
The event will feature key industry players and decision-makers contributing to regulation, application, investment, and education across many African countries. Chairman of NexChange Juwan Lee, said, “Africa is the next big move for blockchain. We see not just opportunities in the payment space and financial inclusion, but we see significant institutional involvement.” The new reality has proven technology to be a bridge to a better future.
Strong ties between African countries, like the cooperation South-South, encouraged by Morrocan Monarch His Royal Highness Mohammed VI goes beyond just politics. New economic bridges ensure that Africa is able to bypass certain steps on the technological staircase, positioning itself ahead of the global curve.
Described by the World Bank and called leapfrogging, it relies strongly on enhanced technologies including blockchain. Chairman of Marita Group Rahhal Boulgoute said, “Blockchain will revolutionize Africa and provide opportunities for financial inclusion. It is important that we expose blockchain technology in Africa.”
The impact is seen on Africa’s financial map. Over the last few years, digital banking and mobile payments have proven to be a real-life case study for millions of users, making people’s financial lives better by; ensuring financial inclusion, and changing the game for those who are considered to be unbanked. Banks, enterprises, and entrepreneurs are changing the continent’s destiny, and shaping the investment landscape.
This event backs the efforts of the African regulators to adopt the required regulations to embrace blockchain and become a main global player in the technologies that are considered to be shaping the future. The ambition of the co-hosts is to make Africa Blockchain Week the key platform for dialogue and networking between all stakeholders in the blockchain space, so as to transform it into a reality in Africa.
