From the just concluded Africa Blockchain Week Virtual Summit 2021, it’s crystal clear that blockchain technology is the way to go for Africa. With the high rates of inflation in most African countries, as mentioned by some speakers during the event, blockchain technology is chipping in to help solve this issue.
Anything that can conceive of as a supply chain, blockchain can vastly improve its efficiency — it doesn’t matter if its people, numbers, data, money. Ginni Rometty, CEO IBM
The Africa Blockchain Week Virtual Summit 2021 was one of a kind, the most prominent blockchain events in Africa, with over 10,000+ participants. There were speakers from across the globe tackling great topics.
Of course, apart from the welcoming notes, the day had great speakers grace the occasion and shedding more light concerning blockchain and Africa in particular. From the likes of Michael Terpin — Founder & CEO at Transform Group, who demystified how Blockchain Technology empowers Africa; Amrita Sethi, an award-winning Multi-media and NFT artist, who explained in detail about NFT Africa Blockchain; and Karn Dwivedi, Chairman at Ecoin Network who in black and white discussed the value of decentralized community in the crypto space, among others.
This was the long-awaited day within the Free TON community, as one of our own, the Free TON Africa SG leader, John Kanyiri, together with other panelists, excited the day to represent the Free TON community in the panelist discussion about decentralized finance, especially on the global trends and solutions for the unbanked in Africa.

Also, Rob Charles, Founder & CEO at Goldfingr, clarified how to ensure mass adoption for cryptocurrency. Michael’s sentiments and ideas are so unique that, if implemented adopted and implemented, they can help increase Ton Crystal’s usage and thus growing the Free TON community immensely.
Great speakers with magnificent topics brought the event into a climax. It was made clear how blockchain technology can be utilized to ensure sustainable and sustainable development goals for Africa, investment strategies via blockchain, and how financial inclusion powered by technology and community can help build Africa, among others.
