One of the world’s leading blockchain ecosystem and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider, Binance has recently launched a crypto education tour across 5 countries in French-speaking Africa also known as Francophone Africa, as part of its mission to drive blockchain adoption and enable greater financial accessibility in the region.
Binance launched the first meetup of the tour in Cotonou, Benin on September 10 2022 with the aim of equipping cryptocurrency fans and newcomers in the area with the necessary knowledge about blockchain technology and how to use it as a tool for financial freedom.
The Benin meetup was a physical educational event that introduced attendees to the Binance Ecosystem and the world of cryptocurrencies. About 400 people who were passionate about blockchain technology attended. Participants also took part in fun activities including an NFT quiz, where 250+ winners received NFTs.
The remainder of the tour will be held in Togo on September 24th, 2022, Côte D’Ivoire on October 8, 2022, Cameroon on October 22, 2022, and Burkina Faso on October 9, 2022.
Carine Dikambi, Francophone Africa Lead at Binance commented on Binance’s drive saying “It is clear that Francophone Africa has limitless potential to be a key player in the blockchain revolution and we are committed to providing more people with access to the necessary information and tools to use digital assets and blockchain.”
He added, “Community is a vital part of the blockchain and by bringing together like-minded people to learn and grow in the space, the future of blockchain in Francophone Africa is inevitably prosperous.”
Throughout this education drive, Cameroon is to provide resources and training for young people across Francophone Africa. Taking their mission a step further, the Francophone meetups demonstrate the blockchain giant’s continued commitment to providing avenues for offline connections, learning, and sharing of experiences in the crypto space.
Participants should expect to learn the basics of blockchain, discover how others are using crypto in their everyday lives, learn how to store value with crypto and earn on your crypto balances, understand real-world applications of the blockchain and understand crypto trading and how it works in simple terms.
Such missions are an engine of growth for crypto adoption in Francophone Africa and Africa as a whole as they offer a borderless way for Africans to participate in the crypto market today. With the growth in general user interest, education, and even media interest, crypto has the potential to foster innovation, financial inclusion, and economic competitiveness for Francophone Africa.
