DeFi africa Overview

Led by a dedicated team, DeFi Africa is a not-for-profit organization with the aim of advancing the knowledge, adoption and application of decentralized finance related technologies in Africa.

This is a place where enthusiasts and talented professionals connect, communicate and collaborate to serve the needs of the DeFi ecosystem in Africa. Head Quarters in Ghana, the aim of the Association is to make DeFi more accessible and comprehensive to all people, while creating opportunity and establishing industry standards for a thriving the DeFi ecosystem in the continent.



The DeFi Africa was established in 2019 as a telegram community based group to support and grow the Decentralized Finance and blockchain community in Africa.

In order to better achieve its objectives, the team decided in 2020 to become a “for-impact organization” that will engage in several other initiatives other than community.

The new vision, mission, brand and website was launched in February 2020. Some activities were also added to our previous community building activity.
