Jambo Nairobi: How blockchain can revolutionize mobile payments in Africa

August 16, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Celo on Blockchain

There’s a lot of buzz about blockchain, but what does it all mean? What are some new ways that we can use blockchain in Kenya? How can we use this technology to bring more people into the financial system?

It is in regard to this that Celo, a company that aims at removing the barriers for large-scale adoption of cryptocurrencies as means-of-payment, will hold a blockchain event on Thursday August 16th 2018 at Nairobi Garage, Pinetree Plaza, off Ngong Road from 8.00 am to 9.30 am

Dubbed as, How blockchain can revolutionize mobile payments in Africa, seeks to answer all questions around blockchain in its first forum in Kenya.

Celo is building products for financial inclusion utilizing the power of blockchain. You’re invited to come meet the team and learn more about the technology behind the protocol. Coffee, tea, and breakfast on us. Please RSVP. Space is limited.
