About the Event

Bitcoin Events 2nd virtual and 8th annual edition of the Blockchain Africa Conference was hosted on the 17 and 18 March 2022. The conference attracted 1964 attendees from 113 countries and facilitated discussions on the exciting opportunities and developments taking place in the African and global blockchain ecosystem.
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’, with the 2022 theme as ‘Ready for Business?’.
The Blockchain Africa Conference 2022 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.
With incredible insights, discussions, debates and panel discussions, it is clear that blockchain and cryptocurrencies are ready for business.
The African and global blockchain ecosystems continue to grow rapidly, reshaping global industries and paving the way for a more digitally robust and inclusive future.
