What the Blockchain Africa Conference 2018 sponsors are doing with blockchain technology

Bitcoin Events’ 4th annual Blockchain Africa Conference is made possible by its sponsors who are all working with blockchain technology.

Our Diamond Sponsors and Partners are Microsoft South Africa and IBM. These companies are bringing blockchain technology to companies and governments with their innovative solutions.

Microsoft has developed Microsoft Azure, a blockchain as a service platform. It’s a quick, inexpensive and fail-fast platform where any company (including start-ups, retailers, healthcare providers and global banks) can collaborate and experiment with new business processes that use blockchain technology.

IBM Blockchain Platform provides support for governments and banking, healthcare and logistics industries to transform their business practices using blockchain technology. The platform is designed to accelerate the development, governance and operation of any multi-institution business network.

Our Platinum Sponsor: Telcoin

Telcoin is a new cryptocurrency that will be accepted and distributed by telecom operators, making it completely mobile friendly. People will be able to make international remittances, online payments, mobile credit top-ups and ad hoc transfers from the mobile devices.

Our Gold Sponsors: BankServAfrica, Aion, Centbee, Dimension Data

BankServAfrica is Africa’s largest automated payments clearing house. It remains the industry leader in electronic payment and information switching services, and believes the next generation of payments infrastructure must be mobile friendly and address financial exclusion issues.

Aion is a blockchain network that addresses the problems that prevent blockchain adoption by mainstream organisations: scalability, privacy and inoperability in blockchain networks. As the world’s first third-generation blockchain, Aion will be the ecosystem where current and future blockchains co-exist and communicate.

Centbee is a Bitcoin wallet provider where consumers can store and spend their Bitcoin. It has just received funding from nChain Group, the leading blockchain research and development firm, opening Bitcoin Cash merchant payments to a global market.

Dimension Data specialises in IT services throughout the world. It offers consulting, technical and support services, and virtualisation, network integration, security and data centre management and automation solutions.
