The Cardano family has been traveling all over the world and its current destination was Africa. As part of the Cardano Africa Tour, Charles Hoskinson, the founder of the Cardano network, was seen meeting with an array of politicians as well as entrepreneurs in order to roll out blockchain-based solutions into certain countries.
The underlying technology that cryptocurrencies run on, blockchain has been a crowd favorite. Several governments, as well as major firms, were seen excessively employing blockchain tech over the last couple of years.
As the world turns over the digital leaf, several countries, particularly the underdeveloped and developing countries have a tough time in adopting or getting on par with this transition. Implementation of blockchain tech in such countries could certainly speed up the process and bring them much closer to witnessing a technological metamorphosis. Therefore, the IOHK team seemed to be helping regions in Africa to be better connected to the developed world.
Cardano Africa Tour to help developing nations
Charles Hoskinson has been keeping the community updated about what the IOHK team was doing in Africa. In his most recent tweet, Hoskinson revealed that he was in talks with the Ministry of Education of Ethiopia. This meeting could indicate that Hoskinson was trying to pitch the idea of using blockchain tech in the Ethiopian educational system.
His tweet read,
“Dropped by the MOE today to discuss the digital transformation of Ethiopia’s educational credentials. Five million students on schedule.”
Apart from education, blockchain technology can be and has proved to be used in an array of industries including healthcare, agriculture, along with many others.
Following this, Hoskinson would reportedly be visiting other African countries like Nigeria, Egypt, Ghana as well as Kenya. During his visit, he hopes to discuss the potentials of including blockchain tech into their system, with presidents and businessmen of that respective country.
