The past week has been enlightening and fun for both LBank and Adanian Labs as they sojourned into Africa to support the cryptopreneurial community and provide more support to builders and innovators there.
It is no longer news that LBank sealed a strategic partnership with Adanian Labs to launch a crypto accelerator program for African startups in the crypto, DeFi, metaverse and the smart economy space.
LBank CEO Allen Wei, the Chairman Eric He, the COO Shantnoo Saxsena and others were present at the opening ceremony to officially launch the ‘crypto accelerator program’ and kick off the ‘LBank and Adanian Crypto Days’ educational efforts which will be powered by the Africa Blockchain Center (ABC).
The ceremony was a success as mentors, industry experts, developers, consultants and trainers were in attendance. In addition, a panel discussion entitled “Blockchain and cryptocurrency in Africa” was conducted as part of the ceremonial lineup of the two-day event in Kenya that began on May 6, 2022.
Each of the panel members shared insights about the blockchain space in Africa. They spoke about the need for Africans to utilise the growing blockchain ecosystem to their own benefit. Thus, create projects addressing new flows, digital currencies & blockchain, DeFi, GameFi, BNPL & Loyalty and more.
The LBank team met with the Cardano team, a relationship created by the Adanian Labs and Emurgo collaboration. In fact, the alliance got the attention of numerous industry leaders, government, and VCs who now want to be part of this critical turning point for Africa.
Representing the President of the Republic of Kenya, Joe Mucheru, ICT Cabinet Secretary, visited the LBank team, where he registered his delight in the top crypto exchange’s interest in Kenya and Africa in general.
The LBank executives were interviewed by different news channels including KBC TV, TV Africa, K24, KTN News and People Daily.
In an interview with KBC TV, Allen noted that the reason LBank is interested in Africa, he says, “crypto adoption is very high. That is why we want to go deep into the African market to support African blockchain and African communities.”
They also took time out to enjoy what Africa has to offer with fun activities which helped them bond further as a team as well as forge new friendships.
All in all, the partnership seeks to do more than build a community but to teach and encourage the young African generation to build global blockchain products and services that solve real problems in their communities.
Startups with a market-tested solution that has gained traction will be listed on the LBank exchange in addition to opportunities to be invested in by LBank.
