Blockchain Collaboration

We hosted the “Blockchain Series” on Wednesday 26th February, 2020 at 8pm GMT+1 via our Discord server. Our special guest was Lucky Henry, Regional Lead Waves platform and founder, Quru Labs. He spoke about opportunities for Africans on the Blockchain and here are a few excerpts from his session;

  • Start from yourself; think about a problem you have that the blockchain can solve.
  • Let your focus be on continuous learning. 
  • Don’t blindly support any blockchain; ask questions and the answers will direct your focus.
  • Don’t jump from blockchain to blockchain; master one and understand it’s use cases. 
  • How can we serve the world as Africans? This is where blockchain comes into play; it gives freedom, liberty and cross border payment. So, provide a valuable service. 


It was an informative, interactive and highly educative session for both crypto veterans and newbies. Plans are underway towards the successful delivery of the next episode.
