Who We Are
Driving The Success Of Decentralized Finance!
DeFi Africa is a community-building initiative aimed at making DeFi more accessible and comprehensive to all people, while creating an opportunity and establishing industry standards for a thriving blockchain ecosystem in Africa. We intend to build a community of innovators, collaborators, and entrepreneurs excited about the promise of DeFi related technologies.
Our mission is to build an ecosystem that:
1. Supports, educates, promotes and advances DeFi adoption in Africa.
2. Establishes an African hub for DeFi/blockchain innovations, adoption and application.
3. Supports and connects entrepreneurs with useful resources
DeFi Africa began in 2019 as a telegram-based group for conversations among African ethereum enthusiasts. In order to better expand our objectives, the team decided in 2020 to become a “for-impact organization” that will engage in several other initiatives other than community to support DeFi growth. Since its inception, the DeFi Africa team has been at the forefront of increasing DeFi and Blockchain awareness in a variety of ways.
