NexChange Group and Marita Group Co-Host Africa Blockchain Week Virtual Summit to  Showcase Continent’s Technological Leapfrog 

The inaugural
Africa Blockchain Week will launch from June 28th to July 1st, 2021. NexChange Group, a blockchain ecosystem and venture builder, and MARITA Group, an African conglomerate will combine forces to co-host this Virtual Summit. The event will feature key industry players and decision-makers contributing to regulation, application, investment, and education across many African countries.  

Juwan Lee, Chairman of NexChange Group: “Africa is the next big move for blockchain. We  see not just opportunities in the payment space and financial inclusion, but we see significant  institutional involvement.” 

The new reality has proven technology to be a bridge to a better future. Strong ties between  African countries, like the cooperation South-South, encouraged by HRH Mohammed VI go beyond just politics. New economic bridges ensure that Africa is able to bypass certain steps on a technological stair, positioning itself ahead of the global curve. Described by the World Bank and called leapfrogging, it relies strongly on enhanced technologies including blockchain. 

Rahhal Boulgoute, Chairman of Marita Group: “Blockchain will revolutionize Africa and provide opportunities for financial inclusion. It is important that we expose blockchain technology in  Africa.” 

The impact is seen on Africa's financial map. Over the last years, digital banking and mobile payments have proven to be a real-life case study for millions of users, making people's financial lives better, ensuring inclusion, and changing the game for the unbanked. Banks, enterprises,  and entrepreneurs are changing the continent’s destiny, shaping the investment landscape.  

This event backs the efforts of the African regulators to adopt the required regulations to embrace blockchain and become a main global player in the technologies shaping the future. The ambition of the Co-hosts is to make Africa Blockchain Week the key platform for dialogue and networking between all stakeholders in blockchain to transform it into a reality in Africa.
