Content

New technologies are ever so rapidly entering our lives, changing entire psychology and social fabric of human life. Digital transformations are also introducing new opportunities for further innovations and entrepreneurships. Blockchain technologies introduce one such digitalization that opens up new horizons around which traditional set-up is challenged. These developments are not sparing any individual, society, region or geography. Hence, the continent of Africa is no exception. Probably it is experiencing exceptionally rapid adaptation to these new developments while opening up to new avenues for development and progress.


It is this webinar’s task to explore what is involved with such radical technological change to answer the unknowns about blockchain, to explain what changes it brings, to uncover how in the African set-up the most innovative and entrepreneurial minds are putting these developments into their use, to discover what holds for the future of blockchain technologies and what that means for the continent.
