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.

The new vision, mission, brand and website was launched in February 2020. Some activities were also added to our previous community building activity.
Vision and Mission
It’s time for transformation in Africa’s digital technology industry – and DeFi Africa believes that DeFi has a strong role to play in overcoming the financial and digital disparities playing a major role in holding Africa back from the world’s financial technology innovation.
We aim to build an African DeFi hub for accelerating the knowledge, adoption, innovation and application of DeFi-related technologies or services in Africa, in order to boost Africa’s financial system based on the spectrums of blockchain technology.
