Bitcoin Events’ flagship event, the Blockchain Africa Conference 2021, is scheduled to take place in Johannesburg, South Africa, on 18-19 March 2021
The seventh conference in the acclaimed series, Blockchain Africa Conference 2021, is expected to attract 500 participants from more than 35 countries, including investors, start-ups, enthusiasts, developers, corporations, policy makers and regulators. The event is designed to provide an ecosystem for participants from all walks of life to learn, network and collaborate.
This year’s conference will focus on the continued transformation of blockchain from hype to mainstream. A roster of 35 high-profile speakers will take the stage to explore how collective sentiment about blockchain technology continues to rise, particularly as tech and payment giants like PayPal, Square and Facebook make significant investments in space.
Since 2015, Bitcoin Events’ annual Blockchain Africa Conferences have been the first of their kind on the African continent. With massive challenges relating to processing transactions and doing business in many regions of Africa, blockchain technology is expected to provide a simpler, more efficient way of facilitating the next generation of payment infrastructure across the region.
“As blockchain technology matures, we’re seeing a shift away from blockchain experiments toward the development of robust, enterprise-ready solutions. Through Blockchain Africa Conference 2021, we’re bringing together adopters and application leaders who are using blockchain to revolutionise payments and digital business as a whole. We’re excited to play a role in this maturation and explore how blockchain can make doing business in Africa more seamless,” stated Sonya Kuhnel, founder of Bitcoin Events.
Blockchain Africa Conference 2021 is an unparalleled opportunity for innovators, disruptors and thought leaders who want to learn, share knowledge and network with like-minded individuals. The event’s organisers expect attendees from six continents spanning multiple industries and disciplines, such as fintech, software development, telecommunications, banking and venture capital firms.
“If your business is in or with Africa and your target is growth, Blockchain Africa Conference 2021 is a must-attend event. The gathering will bring together hundreds of attendees from around the globe to discuss the future and convergence of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, particularly how these technologies are addressing urgent challenges in Africa,” said Theo Sauls, Founder of Bitcoin Events.
Registration for Blockchain Africa Conference 2021 is now open and available in multiple options – from live streaming tickets to startup passes and more. Both fiat and cryptocurrency payments are accepted.
