Blockchain EXE
Blockchain EXE – Japan’s largest blockchain community led by Couger’s CEO, Atsushi Ishii – will host “Blockchain Fundamentals and Applications” workshop with the University of Rwanda under the support of the World Bank from August 13 to 17, 2018.

Background

The country has overcome the genocide in 1994 and has achieved tremendous growth since then. Under the strong leadership of President Paul Kagame, “VISION 2020 in Rwanda” has been carried out, positively invested in the ICT field, and creating an opportunity for advanced technology to be implemented. In addition, the government is leading “Smart Africa” initiative and promoting the ICT development of entire Africa.

Challenges and Solutions

The current rapid growth of Rwanda is based on “trust”. The citizens are united and trusting each other. However, there are still a lot of challenges at infrastructure level such as rapid urbanization, pollution, instability of energy and logistics inefficiency. By using blockchain’s “trust-building” characteristics, companies and organizations that never had a trusted relationship before can now collaborate to solve those problems. Starting from Rwanda, we believe the technology has a potential to contribute to the development of entire Africa.

Overview

It will be the first intensive blockchain development workshop in Rwanda, and blockchain experts from ConsenSys – the world’s leading blockchain venture studio, Stellar – the world’s leading financial system provider, and Couger – AI x AR x Blockchain service developer will join. The top blockchain companies such as Ocean Protocol – decentralized data marketplace provider, Weeve – decentralized IoT data marketplace provider, and Centaurus Works – blockchain x legal service provider will also participate online. Moreover, it will be supported by the World Bank, and the government officials of Rwanda will also be on stage.

By collaborating with the various stakeholders all over the world, the tech community from Japan aims to create a strong blockchain community and build the next-generation infrastructure in Rwanda.
