Ideas Worth Spreading

The blockchain right now is what the internet was 20-25 years ago, - we aren't really sure of what it can do, so there is great speculation. I believe Africa is uniquely placed to take advantage and lead in this technology because we are not burdened by legacy issues of developed countries. The majority of the discussions with respect to the blockchain are centered around cryptocurrencies - yet there is so much more that it can do. In fact, I will not mention Bitcoin in my presentation but rather focus on the ledger and its current use cases in a simple and relatable way to ultimately invite us as a continent to be curious around the blockchain and what we can use it for in Africa.
