Bitcoin Events is excited to be hosting the definitive African blockchain and cryptocurrency event, the Blockchain Africa Conference, on 17 and 18 March 2022.

This event marks the annual conference’s 8th and 2nd virtual edition and introduces attendees to some of the most influential cryptocurrency and blockchain industry figures. These acclaimed experts will assemble at this prestigious event to analyze and debate pressing topics pertinent to this fast-growing industry.

The conference will be focusing on the opportunities and use cases that blockchain technology presents to both the African continent and globally. Over the years, the conference themes have evolved and aligned with the global adoption of blockchain technology: ‘Moving Africa Forward,’ ‘Beyond the Hype,’ ‘From Hype to Mainstream,’ and now ‘Ready for Business?’

This year’s event comes alongside the growing collective sentiment and increases in the adoption of blockchain technology. Many private and public organizations are implementing the technology and leveraging it to develop robust, enterprise-ready solutions. The industry has matured, and as a result, it is less susceptible to hype and speculation. 2021 was the year of institutional interest and global adoption. 2022 is perfectly poised to continue this trend and build off 2021’s momentum.

Several talks at the conference will explore the rising demand for cryptocurrencies and other blockchain-enabled products in Africa. The continent’s young population, high mobile connection penetration, and well-established infrastructure are the main drivers contributing to the accelerating adoption of blockchain and digital currencies.

The conference will unpack some of the industry’s challenges, particularly regarding regulation. South African Reserve Bank (SARB) Senior FinTech Specialist Herco Steyn will present a regulatory update within the context of South Africa, including central-bank specific topics and initiatives by the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and SARB.

The event will bring together 2000+ attendees from 50+ countries, 45+ speakers, 25+ sessions with keynotes, presentations, panels, exhibitions, prizes, giveaways, and networking sessions hosted by selected industry leaders. The conference promises to be a packed 2 days of innovative discussions and networking, bringing together a wide network of professionals, entrepreneurs, regulators, major industry executives, and investors.
