Blockchain Africa Conference 2021

March 18-19, 2021 - Johannesburg, South Africa with Optional Virtual Format

Bitcoin Events’ annual Blockchain Africa Conference in Johannesburg (https://www.nnw.fm/ZDY97) will preserve a tradition of international innovation in an industry that is still building recognition worldwide, unveiling “meaningful implementations” in the public and private sectors. The two-day event will take place in the spring and is anticipating sufficient respite from the ongoing global pandemic to permit in-person gathering, although virtual attendance is also a ticket option and event organizers have been building experience with the platform since their first virtual conference — August’s DeFi summit.

The previous six conferences have built a portfolio of 170 speakers and 2,000 delegates from over 40 countries, gathering to learn about trends and opportunities as the blockchain technology matures toward mainstream acceptance. Africa has been a particularly fruitful breeding ground for digital payment systems as a preferred alternative to brick-and-mortar banks. US Blockchain research firm Chainalysis noted that monthly cryptocurrency transfers to and from Africa under $10,000 shot up by 55 percent on a year-over-year basis, reaching a peak of $316 million in June (https://www.nnw.fm/MXHvK). The trend is driven by many of the continent’s economies’ dependance on overseas labor remittances.

The event is also taking applications for speaking and exhibition slots. For information on registration and tickets as well as how to participate as a presenter, visit the event’s website at blockchainafrica.co.

Conference Highlights

  • Planned in-person attendance, but with virtual event ticketing available
  • Last year’s event hosted 230 delegates and 35 speakers at a time when the newly emerging pandemic disrupted many conference-goers’ plans
