Coinference 2022 is dedicated to educating African audiences on cryptocurrency. The conference brings together stakeholders from across the continent – entrepreneurs, investors, regulators, academics and blockchain enthusiasts – to foster a community where knowledge sharing is encouraged, and ideas are exchanged with respect to the application of blockchain technology in Africa.

Blockchain technology has emerged as an essential tool for creating trust in transactions on the internet. It helps users store data and make transactions without requiring a central authority to co-ordinate or keep track of everything. The potential of blockchain technology is hard to overstate, with diverse industries recognising its value.

“In this era of technological advancement, it is imperative for us to partner with a leading tech-driven media house like Technext. This helps us achieve our mission to tell stories about the innovations that drive economic growth on the continent” said Africa Media Agency CEO Eloïne Barry.

“This partnership is a strategic move to bring visibility to the new development in the financial space and create further awareness of crypto trading as an investment option.”

Africa has been at the forefront of digital evolution, with the continent boasting more than 730 million mobile connections and more than 400 million internet users. This makes it a prime hub for blockchain technology and cryptocurrency innovation.

Speaking about the collaboration, Technext’s CEO David Afolayan said: “Our goal at Coinference 2022 is to further the exciting conversations that have begun in 2021.

African Media Agency’s support of the event is in line with its commitment to creating bridges that provide opportunities for services and products that seek to help Africa’s development. It also affirms the agency’s goal to highlight African players in the global space, thereby increasing their visibility as well as their competitiveness.
