Transforming Africa through Blockchain and Cryptocurrency: Africa’s Leading Event Organisers since 2015
Bitcoin Events, co-founded by Sonya Kuhnel and Theo Sauls in 2014, emerged as a result of their early adoption of cryptocurrencies and their strong belief in the transformative potential of blockchain technology. With a keen focus on addressing Africa’s significant challenges, such as financial inclusion, economic development, and job creation, they recognised the need for education and information on blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies in the region.
To bridge this knowledge gap, Bitcoin Events established a platform that offers a range of events, workshops, and educational meetups. These gatherings provide valuable opportunities for individuals and organisations to learn, connect, and network with like-minded enthusiasts and industry leaders who are actively building products and services utilising blockchain technology.
In 2015, Bitcoin Events organised the inaugural Bitcoin Africa Conference in Cape Town, which later evolved into the Blockchain Africa Conference. Currently in its 9th year, this conference has become a prominent gathering in the industry. In addition, Bitcoin Events introduced the Crypto Fest in 2019, hosting the event in Cape Town. Furthermore, we organised the virtual DeFi Conference in 2020, expanding the reach and embracing the possibilities of online engagement.
Throughout the 9-year journey, Bitcoin Events has had the honor of welcoming over 17,000 attendees from more than 165 countries. We have had the privilege of engaging with esteemed individuals and reputable companies at the forefront of the blockchain space. With a far-reaching influence, Bitcoin Events remains dedicated to empowering Africa through our world-class events, contributing to the advancement of the region’s blockchain ecosystem.
Bitcoin Events has been leading the way in Africa since 2015 with its groundbreaking Blockchain Africa Conferences. As the pioneers of this remarkable event, we’ve brought together the brightest minds and industry trailblazers from around the world, including visionaries like Charles Hoskinson, the Founder and CEO of IOHK and Cardano, Rene Reinsberg, the Co-Founder of Celo and President at the Celo Foundation, Sandra Ro, the CEO at the Global Blockchain Business Council, Denelle Dixon, the CEO and Executive Director of the Stellar Development Foundation and Andreas M. Antonopoulos, an esteemed expert in security, distributed systems, and authorship.
Our conferences have been at the forefront of the blockchain and cryptocurrency industries, providing a platform for thought leaders to gather, exchange ideas, and explore the vast potential of blockchain technology, with a focus on Africa.
Now, we’re excited to announce the 10th edition of our conference, set to take place in the vibrant city of Johannesburg, South Africa in 2024.
Throughout the years, our conference themes have evolved alongside the global adoption of blockchain technology. We started with ‘Beyond the Hype’ and progressed to ‘From Hype to Mainstream,’ embracing the transformational power of blockchain. Most recently, we delved into the question of ‘Ready for Business?’ as we witnessed the industry’s maturation.
In 2024, we’re taking things to the next level. Join us in person as we explore the latest opportunities and use cases that blockchain technology brings to Africa and the world. .
