The conference will explore the big ideas, market disruptors, top industry trends and technologies that are shaping the future marketplace. The conference will focus on global trends with a specific focus on Africa and how market players can capitalize on the opportunities and respond to the challenges that arise from blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.

The themes of the conference have evolved over the years, starting with “Beyond the Hype”, “From Hype to Mainstream”, “Ready for Business?” and now “Ready for Business”.

This year’s conference will focus on the application of blockchain technology across public and private sectors by global business leaders, organisations, and innovators, leaving hype and speculation behind.

Key streams are:

  • Blockchain-based use-cases across both financial and non-financial industries
  • Cryptocurrency/digital asset regulation
  • Blockchain technology hurdles and challenges

The objectives are:

  • To provide contextual understanding of blockchain technology and the opportunities that it presents for Africa
  • To deliver well-structured content that will meet the needs of different stakeholders and different industries
  • To provide networking opportunities focused on creating business partnerships and collaborations that will create employment, drive economic growth and catapult development

The Blockchain Africa Conference is an event that captivates and educates a global audience as Bitcoin Events continues to educate the African community, spread awareness and encourage networking within the space.
