On October 15, Hoskinson flew from the US to Cape Town to participate in the meeting dedicated to blockchain innovations in African countries conducted as part of the CiTi event.
In his speech, he suggested that in the near future, Africa will be among the first countries that will begin fully utilizing blockchain-based products, which is likely to ensure its progress in the tech and financial spheres.
Heading over to Burundi
After Zanzibar, Cardano founder went over to Burundi to meet the local president Évariste Ndayishimiye and discuss the digital transformation of the country with him.
Hoskinson meets top-tier politicians and businessmen
In a recent video where he shared news from the tour around Africa, Hoskinson said that he has been having a lot of meetings with top politicians and entrepreneurs. Among them has been the head of ShopRite retail behemoth and with the company’s team responsible for innovations.
There are “tons of other meetings” in queue, according to Charles. On his “pan-African tour” as he jokingly refers to his large scale trip in Africa, he will be also visiting such countries as Kenya, Ethiopia. The tour will end in Egypt in a few days. According to Cardano’s blog, next time, Hoskinson will also visit Nigeria and Ghana.Source
