A roster of 35 high-profile speakers will take the stage to explore how collective sentiment about blockchain technology continues to rise, particularly as tech and payment giants such as PayPal, Square and Facebook make significant investments in the space.Since 2015, Bitcoin Events’ annual Blockchain Africa Conferences have been the first of their kind on the African continent. With massive challenges relating to processing transactions and doing business in many regions of Africa, blockchain technology is expected to provide a simpler, more efficient way of facilitating the next generation of payment infrastructure across the region. The event will be hosted online for the first time due to the global uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
