Since 2015, Bitcoin Events have been hosting the annual Blockchain Africa Conferences, the first of their kind in Africa. The popular conferences have attracted some of the top thought leaders and pioneers in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industries worldwide, including Charles Hoskinson, Founder and CEO of IOHK, Founder of Cardano, and Director of The Bitcoin Project; Sam Bankman-Fried, Founder at Alameda Research, and CEO and Founder of FTX; and Andreas M. Antonopoulos, security and distributed systems expert, coder, entrepreneur and author.
The conference themes have evolved in line with the global adoption of blockchain technology: ‘Beyond the Hype’, ‘From Hype to Mainstream’ and now ‘Ready for Business?’ Two jam-packed days of featured sessions, keynotes, panels and fireside chats exploring the latest trends and developments in blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, both in Africa and globally. The conference brings together top thought-leaders and pioneers in the global industry, and creates an ecosystem for all to learn, network, and collaborate with each other.
Bitcoin Events is the proud organiser of the blockchain conferences - the first of its kind in Africa, as well as the largest focusing on blockchain technology. Bitcoin Events was founded in 2014 by Sonya Kuhnel and Theo Sauls who saw a need to educate and inform people about the opportunities that digital currencies and blockchain technology in Africa offer.
