The African continent is home to an emerging digital ecosystem and a massive, creative, and youthful talent pool. It is time to shine a spotlight on the ready potential of the continent and for a new generation of creators and leaders to rise up. We believe that we must provide the opportunity for people who want to make changes to positively impact society.
As the world and the role of blockchain continues to develop, we have brilliant African minds that are full of ideas and energy but who lack access to the infrastructure and funds to realize their dreams. We would like to give them the opportunity to learn at an elite level and get them everything they need to turn their ideas and projects into reality.
The African Blockchain Center for Developers (ABCD) will create opportunities by providing blockchain solutions for the world and by utilizing the pool of talent working remotely in Africa to build solutions for developers, start-ups, enterprises, and governments both on the continent and worldwide. The vision of the ABCD is to help bridge the developer-skills gap in Africa by providing better access to high-quality, world-class skills on blockchain technology.
Our main goal is finding talented and motivated people to provide them with the skills and means necessary to perform at an elite level.
By fulfilling this mission, ABCD will concretely contribute to:
• Local job creation
• Local business development
• Contribute to the rise of blockchain technologies and decentralization in Africa
• Creation of Smart contracts and decentralized applications (Dapps)
• Address, thanks to decentralization, some of the most pressing issues in Africa (ID systems, land registration, blood donation, access to property, traceability, etc.)
