Nairobi-based blockchain accelerator BitHub.Africa has unveiled its Blockchain Opportunity Report crowdsale campaign to offer crypto-currency enthusiasts a chance to buy an extensive report on the top 16 most suitable blockchain platforms for 2017.
The ebook can be downloaded from the website for $29.99. The proceeds from ebook sales will go towards funding the activities of BitHub.Africa’s new incubator and partner hubs across Africa.
According to the Chairman of AITEC Africa Sean Moroney, “BitHub Africa is doing great work advancing the growth of Blockchain technology across Africa. The blockchain opportunity report provides a lot of insight on emerging blockchain technologies that offer interesting solutions to many challenges across Africa.”
The Blockchain Opportunity Report, reviewes 16 cryptocurrencies and blockchain platforms expected to disrupt existing incumbents across key sectors like finance, technology, and commerce.
People are beginning to bypass traditional centralized banking and payment systems in much of the developed world and beginning to feel the benefits of decentralized currency through increased adoption of mobile and internet-based blockchain technology. African nations are catching up with this trend in a rapid pace to create a promising atmosphere for crypto-currency and blockchain initiatives. The Blockchain Opportunity Report has achieved great reception among the peers in cryptocurrency and blockchain industry.
Max Kordek, Founder and CEO of Lisk says the blockchain opportunity report by BitHub Africa is the first step towards a broader market adoption of blockchain technology in Africa.
In Africa, alternative currencies have a huge potential in creating efficiency while disrupting traditional mechanisms for international trade, resource management, and governance. In the present traditional financial system, transaction costs are high due to weak infrastructure, mismanagement, corruption and growing inflation. But an exponential growth in the adoption of new blockchain technologies and innovations would combat these issues.
The founder of BitMari Sinclair Skinner believes in the potential of crypto-technology to uplift the unbanked. Skinner said,
“An illuminating piece on cutting edge blockchain technology like Bitcoin that will emancipate previously financially excluded people like the African farmer.”
The use of crypto-currencies has grown massively in the past eight years since Bitcoin first hit the scene and now the market is flooded with new crypto-currencies, with many that offer little more than to make quick returns from investors while offering nothing in return. BitHub.Africa’s comprehensive report is a result of painstaking research and analysis of dozens of crypto-currency platforms. It aims to help crypto-currency businesses and enthusiasts to identify those offering unique value propositions or innovative solutions to meet the society’s needs while solving existing social and economic problems.
Proceeds from the $29.99 for each copy of the report will go towards the African Blockchain Opportunity Campaign and aids BitHub.Africa’s mission to increase mass adoption of Bitcoin and Blockchain technology across the continent.
According to the Head of Partnerships at Coinbase, Kristine Stone said, “The Blockchain Opportunity is a clear picture of the disruptive solutions at the fingertips of Africa. Evaluating trends and data John provides a holistic view of opportunities and challenges blockchain technology will face. In this stimulating book, the reader is provided a window into how blockchain will change the way we live not only in Africa, but the world at large.”
