Week 1: Launch of Africa Blockchain Conference 2019.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are excited this week to launch our preparations for the Africa Blockchain Conference 2019. The next 12 weeks will be an exciting journey, and through these weekly email letters, we will keep you abreast of every step of that journey.

When we began preparing for last year’s Africa Blockchain Conference, few expected the type of impact that it would have, among which few included ourselves as the organizing team. The conference in 2018 hosted 800 people from 32 countries, comprising global industry and policy leaders, the President of Uganda, the 6th President of Mauritius, the Governor or the Central Bank, the CEO of Binance the largest crypto exchange in the world, the Chair of the Bankers Association and many others. More importantly however were the partnerships that were signed, the investment opportunities and jobs that were created, and the decisions taken that have since informed national policy.

As we embark on the 12 week journey ahead of us, we know the potential impact of the next Africa Blockchain Conference, and have hence begun diligently working towards the conference whose theme this year “Africa 4.0” will focus on “Preparing Africa for the 4th Industrial Revolution.” If you are unfamiliar with the 4th Industrial Revolution, or the terms 4IR or Industry 4.0, then this conference is for you; if you are however already familiar with 4IR, then this conference is also for you, in other words, this conference is for all of us. The 4th Industrial Revolution is already upon us, and rather than waiting to be impacted by it, we must consciously engage and prepare our selves, our systems, our nations, and our posterity for this inevitability on the horizon.

As we today launch our preparations, we invite you to visit and register on our website www.africanblockchain.org which will continue to update over the next 12 weeks. Our team remains committed to attend to any queries and suggestions for improvement, and we look forward to experiencing this journey together.

Welcome to the Africa Blockchain Conference 2019 !
