This technology may improve existing services, systems and products by making the most of its key features such as security, transparency, cost-efficiency and full life-cycle transaction history.

The conference will be held 1-3 March 2017 in Johannesburg.

Start-up tickets are available for R1750, with Standard tickets available for R3500.

A workshop will be held on 1 March 2017 from 9am to 4:30pm at a conference venue in Johannesburg. The aim of the workshop is to give delegates a good understanding of digital currencies such as bitcoin, its underlying technology blockchain as well as why this technology is being referred to as the next Industrial Revolution.

Bitcoins was invented as a peer-to-peer system for online payments that does not require a trusted central authority. Founded in 2008, the cryptocurrency uses consensus in a massive peer-to-peer network to verify transactions.

Bitcoin is a form of cryptocurrency that is finding increasing popularity as a form of currency. No single entity owns the Bitcoin network and it has a public ledger called “the blockchain”.

It is this technology that will drive conversations at the Blockchain Africa Conference 2017.

The workshop, led by Gavin Marshall, will also look at current regulation and compliance globally and in South Africa.

Workshop tickets are available for R2350.

There are options to buy tickets in Bitcoin.
