Blockchain Technology

Organizations are looking at the blockchain technology as a means to improve their existing services, systems and products by leveraging its key features: security, transparency, full life-cycle transaction history, real-time, immutability and cost-efficiency.

This Blockchain Africa Conference 2017 aims to bring together a range of experts to discuss opportunities, challenges and possibilities in innovation and disruption that can be leveraged in Africa using this technology. Topics to be discussed will include:

  • What use cases exist or are being developed globally and in Africa for payments, settlements, KYC, AML, the blockchain as a service and identity management?;
  • What opportunities exist for using smart contracts and distributed ledger technology in finance, insurance and supply chain management?;
  • What concerns exist around performance, scalability and blockchain infrastructure?;
  • What regulatory frameworks and compliance exist currently? What concerns do the regulators have with this technology?.
