People are the source of success for any business. They are the underlying fibre that connects the making of a product or service to its usability in the end. However, the right people are never always in plain sight and can be quite a challenge to reach. The internet has opened up the channels of communication and accessibility to goods and services, yet businesses continue to struggle to with it.Blockchain technology is finally fixing this.

Dubbed Web 3.0, the blockchain is changing the core meaning of financial values and how we interact with them, ushering security, transparency, accountability and immutable ownership to financial assets. Its decentralized ability to disintermediated the exchange of values has made it a favourite among young tech enthusiasts and disruptive entrepreneurs looking to leverage these abilities to create, develop, and engage.


Blockchain development is fuelled by independent individuals who have decided to devote their skills to addressing a real-life problem or building tomorrow's ecosystem on the backbone of a fair and transparent technology.

Billions of dollars have gone into funding blockchain-based start-ups and tens of billion more goes into using their tokenized services every day.

Dear College Freshmen Roommate,

To be honest, my first impression of you was a quiet, shy private catholic school girl. (Wow, this couldn't have been the farthest thing from the truth)! I remember walking behind you and your boyfriend on the way to the bars on our very first night of Summer B. I kept thinking how much you didn't like me because you didn't say hi to me. Little did I know, after admitting to each other our unfortunate first impressions of each other years later, you were just being cognizant of me because you thought I was a real-life version of Regina George from Mean Girls. It turns out you weren't the shy, private school girl I thought you were and I definitely wasn't as cool as Regina George after all.

It didn't take much time for us to become best friends. You had me at "So, do you know what a mountain melt is from Ale House?" After this day, I knew we were going to be lifelong friends and celebrate our passion for carbs, fast food, and sugar together. You make friendship seem so easy. You're always down to study whenever, leave the library whenever, and most importantly, get Chick-Fil-A no matter what our budget is or how broke we are. You always pick up the phone and support all the bad decisions I make. You ALWAYS figure out all my Wordscape puzzles for me and support my real life Candy Crush addiction.

Lexi Garber

I realize that you give me a slice of home when my mom doesn't answer the phone. I love that we always get to talk about our high school memories together because every story is a new and exciting one for both of us. Sometimes I'm happy we met in college because we would have caused way too much trouble in high school together. Besides, I get to hear about how much of an awesome volleyball player you were and I tell you about crazy my lacrosse years. Although, I will say how much it sucks when we go home for summer and winter break because I do get major separation anxiety!

Lexi Garber

When we go out, you know we're requesting ALL Luke Combs songs and sing until our voices are gone. Whether it be going out to the club, binge-eating, studying at the library, watching the Bachelor in your apartment, going to football tailgates or watching baseball games together, we are ALWAYS laughing. You have this amazing brightness and you only radiate positivity and happiness. I can't wait to see what the rest of college has in store for us. I feel so grateful that I got the chance to meet you and call you one of my true, lifelong best friends. I love you to Infinity (the place where it all began) and Back!

ROOM 416 INFINITY HALL ALWAYS!

Lexi Garber

Forever and Always,

your college freshmen roommate

Africa has been in forefront of many advancements over the years, still it is not the first continent that people would consider for technological advances. This is due to the fact, that only the several challenges faced by Africa are advertised by media.

However, blockchain revolution has made its mark and African companies are adopting and experimenting in the tech space. Some of these companies include-

KuBitX

KubitX is a global hybrid digital asset exchange with focus on the emerging markets.They have partnered with NEM and Modul us Global. NEM is one of the biggest cryptocurrencies and platforms in the world. Modulus Global powers NASDAQ, and various other banks and financial platforms, CEO of Modulus is a member of the KuBitX advisory board. KuBitX is seeking to resolve some of Africa's biggest financial challenges, namely- remittance fees, payment processing fees, and fund transfer security. Additionally, the platform provides language diversification on their platform.

The Sun Exchange

Sun Exchange envisions to revolutionise the energy sector within the African continent. They have created a crowdfunding crypto exchange, which allows people to buy a share in an energy plant. This in turn is rented out to organisations or individuals to power their premises. The cost for rent is less than the current cost of electrical energy on the continent, easier to setup and access, and more sustainable.

Bitland

Bitland is tapping blockchain technology to overcome the huge public records challenges in Ghana. Their focus is primarily on property surveys and title deeds. This is a critical need within Africa, due to the lack of record keeping that has been synonymous with Africa's history. The company is relatively new and still finding their feet, but is spearheading an incredibly important project.

Some other noteworthy projects

Amoney – utilises multi-rail tech to merge 4 rails; namely, Ripple, Stellar, Amoney, and Blockchain tech to unify crypto wallets, thus mobilising larger volumes of low-value cross-border payment.
