African Blockchain Startups Continue To Wax Stronger
In the light of recent events, one can proudly say that Blockchain technology is finding its way down to Africa. Just in the past week, a number of blockchain based startups co-hosted the Black blockchain summit which took place at the Howard University in Washington DC.
The technology is a modern-day revolution and one that could turn the fortunes of the continent around if harnessed.
