Kushite ICP East Africa vows to increase blockchain advocacy with Local Web3 Hub


Kushite ICP East Africa Hub an initiative that promotes Internet Computer Protocol (ICP) awareness to developers through education and evangelism in the East African region, has recently launched a local web3 hub focused on education & awareness of blockchain technology.

The Internet Computer Protocol(ICP) is a decentralized computing protocol that enables the creation and operation of a global, open & secure network called the Internet Computer. It aims to extend the functionality of the traditional internet. Instead of relying on individual servers, the network utilizes a vast collection of worldwide computers to store and process data.

This distributed approach improves scalability, enhances security, and enables new possibilities for developers to create & deploy applications directly on the Internet Computer.

” One of the main challenges of blockchain technology is a lack of awareness and understanding among the general population. The hub’s mission is to increase blockchain advocacy, awareness, and adoption in East Africa and beyond and make Kenya East Africa is Africa’s web 3.0 powerhouse – Yvonne Kagondu, East Africa ICP. Hub co-founder says.”

The hub looks forward to working with other groups to make the crypto community the best it can be. Community meet-ups, hackathons, code jams, and events are some of the activities the hub wishes to engage in as they open up their partnership’s channels.

The African continent has peaked as an important market in crypto adoption due to its young population. Kushite’s vision is to educate as many students through campus tours which have already kicked off, having toured the University of Nairobi, NIBS Technical College, KMTC and JKUAT main campuses. The hub is also focused on training and collaborating with aspiring and existing web3 software developers in East Africa already targeting 7 countries including Kenya for the first cohort.
