Hedge will be at the fourth annual Blockchain Africa Conference which will be held on the 8 & 9 March 2018 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The conference 2018 will bring together a diverse range of local and international speakers to discuss Blockchain and cryptocurrency use cases, the regulatory environment, technology hurdles and opportunities in innovation and disruption that can be leveraged using this technology.
Africa has a huge need for financial inclusion; therefore, governments, regulators and banks are looking at various supporting technologies to bring more financial services to the end user. Blockchain technology opens new avenues for traditional banking, mobile banking, payments and remittance services. More and more start-ups and established companies are now looking to disrupt this industry by undercutting or bypassing traditional operators and payment networks, while also offering businesses new ways of accepting payments.
Around the world, we have already seen innovation where title deeds, identity documents and marriage certificates are recorded and stored on Blockchain systems. This evolution of smart contracts can also make businesses in Africa more efficient and make the legal system more equitable as they enable transnational efficiency. Any contract capable of automatically enforcing itself, without the need for a trusted intermediary, will save a massive amount of time and money, especially within the financial and securities sectors.
Hedge sees Africa as a strategic region for growth and expansion with huge Human Development and Financial Inclusion benefits.
