#ABCW2021

New reality, vastly limited by COVID-19 pandemic, has shown that technology is a bridge to a better future. Over the last years, digital transformation has become the key to Africa’s development and a great support in an undergoing economic revolution.

 

Along with smart regulation in hand, with numerous supporting industry associations and a growing generation of adaptable young professionals and would-be entrepreneurs, Africa is developing a strong infrastructure for the adoption of cryptocurrency transactions and blockchain technologies for e-commerce and entrepreneurship frameworks. However, application of blockchain across Africa is not limited to finance. The technology is widely spread in such industries as self sovereign identity, agriculture, energy, healthcare, insurtech, supply chains logistics and even to the creator economy for NFT’s.

 

Being the most interactive, innovative and inclusive virtual event in Africa, the Africa Blockchain Week Virtual Summit will address the current financial technology landscape and the impact of blockchain technology in the above mentioned areas. The event will bring high level regulators, opinion leaders and decision-makers to debate the latest industry trends and future innovations, and provide unparalleled access to visionaries, influencers, and disruptors in the business and technology world.
