BlockXAfrica is a blockchain startup based in Ghana with an aim to bridge the blockchain and cryptocurrency education gap through advocacy, collaboration, and innovation. The startup is made up of a group of young Ghana indigenes that advocate, teach and disseminate information about cryptocurrencies. They intend to achieve their aim through strategic educational campaigns and social intervention programs & projects.
According to the company, the education campaign should enlighten people on the importance of cryptocurrency and also the use cases across the continent will be addressed. additionally, one of the highest contributing factors to lack of ‘faith’ in the technology is the cryptocurrency scams that have invaded the industry in Africa; this is also on the agenda of the company.
BlockXAfrica organized its first meetup during the last weekend and plans to embark on a tour across the country.
BlockXAfrica, aside from education, will create innovations backed by blockchain technology to solve various social issues in Ghana in partnership with local developers. ‘as a way to show the masses how blockchain can change lives,’ the company also claims charities across the country will be beneficiaries of some of their proceeds as a donation.
