2018 is set to be a revolutionary year for Africa as the Land LayBy Holdings, the parent holding company of a flagship of real estate & fintech companies sets the pace for the incorporation of blockchain technology in the African real estate sector. Given the blockchain disruption of financial services with the introduction of cryptocurrencies that are working successfully, it’s hard to find a sector that has not been directly or indirectly influenced by the technology.

Cryptocurrencies have made a strong impact on payments, remittances, and foreign exchange. Token Generation Events (TGEs) have challenged stock investing, startup loans, as well as venture capital. The disruption is now in the African real estate industry as private companies seek to introduce it to land transactions and maintenance of public ledgers.

land laybyThere is a grand opportunity to significantly alleviate such incessant challenges in our real estate industry permanently. Land Layby Kenya Ltd, a Kenyan leading real estate and fintech company, operating in 4 other countries (Australia, Ghana, UK and USA) is propelling Africa’s real estate into the Blockchain space with platforms built on this new technology. The company is set to launch the minimal viable product (MVP) for Africa’s first multinational Blockchain powered land registry early 2018. The platform, which shall be accessed using a special digital utility key called the Harambee token, will transform the way we buy and sell real estate by doing away with the hidden costs, unnecessary intermediaries, and reduce transaction time significantly. It will enhance data security and eliminate manual errors and duplication of verification processes.

Generally, the Blockchain contains a certain and verifiable record of every transaction ever made, which mitigates the risk of double spending, fraud, abuse, and manipulation of transactions. The crypto economics built into the Harambee Token provide incentives for the participants to continue validating blocks, reducing the possibility of external influencers to modify previously recorded transaction records.

Land Layby Holdings hopes to permanently address the trust gap by disclosing land and land options to the public, but with special privacy requirements. The initial role of the platform will be to provide a mirror reflection of the Government Land Registry systems.

BECSA

Johannesburg The Blockchain Entrepreneurs Club South Africa (BECSA) is proud to announce their inaugural event on 12 June 2018! We cordially invite you to attend #AroundTheBlock – an evening of leading presentations, discussions and networking; aimed at all levels of knowledge encompassing blockchain and entrepreneurship.

Blockchains have been in use for just under ten years, but have had massive, global impact in that short time. Although cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are currently regarded as their “killer apps”, a tsunami of new use cases and innovative applications is arriving. Blockchains are now poised to significantly transform or completely disrupt industries as diverse as healthcare, identity, music, and real estate, and almost everything in between.

However, like most emerging technologies, blockchains can be intimidating and confusing, and separating hype from reality is not easy. #AroundTheBlock will take you on a tour of the technology and focus on the real world applications and opportunities it is providing.

Sponsored by Blink, Standard Bank and in partnership with The Festive Collective, a significant portion of the proceeds will be donated to our chosen impact hero, Molo Mhlaba.

For more information about the event or to buy tickets, visit: https://www.quicket.co.za/events/47090-around-the-block-hosted-by-becsa#/

Solarex Utility Token (SRX) – Disrupting the Renewable Energy Market in Africa

Published

on

Solarex Utility Token

Africa is a continent that has amazing potential but is also plagued with a myriad of problems in virtually all sectors ranging from finance, energy, agriculture, and land registry. Unfortunately, more than 50 years of poor governance has not helped alleviate these crunching challenges besetting most African countries.

Fast forward to 2008 and the world got wind of a new lexicon called Bitcoin. It was a new technology that few privileged, young tech-savvy entrepreneurs took advantage of. It wasn’t until 2009 before Satoshi Nakamoto mined the first ever block on the chain, called Genesis Block. Today, the Blockchain has evolved into a decentralized digital ledger via which transactions made in Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency are recorded chronologically and publicly.

The emergence of Blockchain technology which took Africa by storm with its multiple functionalities, in the area of finance, healthcare, governance, and telecommunication, has continued to find immense relevance in the continent. Blockchain can reduce endemic corruption in a continent where there is lack of trust and transparency. Blockchain technology with its vast potential can also help overcome electoral fraud, land theft and educational deficits that have persisted in most African countries.

The key area where most African countries have suffered the most is in the area of energy. As at April 2017, only 15.3% of the entire Tanzanian population had access to electricity. South Sudan is even worse off, with just 5.1% of its total population having access to clean and cheap electricity. The problem is more evident in Nigeria, which prides herself as the Giant of Africa but can only generate an average of 3200MW of electricity daily for over 180 million populations. This has indeed slowed down economic growth in Africa and also impacted negatively on other sectors that depend heavily on electricity for its survival.

Fortunately, Africa has come to embrace renewable energy as a means of bridging the widening gap that has been created by the energy deficit. One of such renewable energy options which were initiated by Africa Blockchain Research Council (ABRC), a holding company of Auto Republic Ltd, UK, is codenamed “Powering Africa Project”. The Powering Africa Project is set to create a clean, cheap and sustainable energy solution to bridge the huge energy gap in Africa. The Project will deploy both the renewable energy and Blockchain technology.

The Solarex ecosystem which will build a decentralized network of energy resources via solar farms which will be connected through Blockchain technology, will aim to become the largest, most efficient and sustainable solar energy provider in Africa, offering energy at a cheap and affordable price for all, and setting a new standard for energy consumption in Africa.

The Solarex utility token (SRX), is an innovative off-grid solar energy technology token that is built around the Ethereum platform and gives access to the services provided on the Solarex ecosystem. Each Solarex token is expected to increase in value based on its multiple functionality and fact that the token will be listed on major exchanges 14 days after the end of its ICO.

The Solarex official ICO website is now opened for private investors and partnership. For those interested in partnership and private sale, simply contact the CEO at ceo@solarex.io
