The event is scheduled to happen from 8th – 9th March 2018 in Johannesburg, and Lorien Gamaroff will serve as the Blockchain Africa Conference master of ceremonies.

The chief executive officer and co-founder of Bankymoon and Centbee recently spoke at the masterclass held at Leaderex 2017.

“The annual South African Blockchain Conference serves an important role in highlighting those companies and thought leaders that have demonstrated success in delivering progressive solutions in this space,” he added.

As of time of writing there is one confirmed speaker for the conference in Andrew Keys. The co-founder of ConsenSys will talk about his firms latest projects.
