Hi, I’m Stephan Coetzee from Cape Town South Africa.
I was hard on bitcoin and blockchain development when I heard about this platform. I’m currently the CEO and co-founder of Genix Group. A Cape Town based corporate innovation consultancy.
One thing is for sure, as the global discussions around blockchain technology continue to grow; Africa will be part of it.
Stephan, I have friends from SA but non of them knows about Blockchain or Cardano.
What is the current sentiment there on the ground when it comes to Blockchain and in particular, Cardano!
Welcome @Stephan_Coetzee great to have you here!
List of countries of community members continues increasing!
By country, the top five nations currently googling Bitcoin are Nigeria, South Africa, Austria, Switzerland and Ghana, Bitcoin yeah. Blockchain or Cardano not so mutch.
Cryptocurrency is not currently regulated in South Africa. I think the regulation which will be implemented in South Africa later this year will not be too intrusive and regulation will be relatively open, I don’t see regulators trying to stifle innovation.
On the other hand, the Western Cape Government is driving innovation and positioning the province as a global technology hub. their focus is on developing the future economy and in order to do that, they need to embrace the Fourth Industrial Revolution and explore how technologies like Cardano can help them drive service delivery and economic growth.
Let take it to the market!
Thanks for introducing yourself Stephan. I look forward to seeing your contributions and the contributions from the African continent as a whole!
Hi and welcome @Stephan_Coetzee. Make yourself at home ;)!
Hi Stephan, I am in south Africa and I am very much new on cryptocurrency. I just fell in love with Cardano and I have been following Charles videos.
I like your views, Stephen.
Would you be willing to share your thoughts, insights and ideas with the global community through The Cardano Community Podcast ?
It would be an honor to have you on our show
Hoping to hear from you soon
Hi Shumani. First logical step would be to obtain more information, work through all of it and get a better understand of how Cardano operates, what the current goals are and what the rules are that governs Cardano. Where abouts are you based?
Thank you for your confidence in asking me. I’ll sleep on it.
Thank you , I am based in Johannesburg.
a warm welcome @Stephan_Coetzee. great to have young individuals like you here
