Defi Africa | Ghana Crypto & Defi Summit 2022 w/ Sahabia YakubuBankless Africa Podcast

Sahabia Yakubu is the founder and managing director of DeFi Africa Network, and a blockchain advocate, speaker, and writer from Ghana. His involvement in the blockchain industry spans nearly 5 years, with a particular emphasis on education, community building, and advocacy. He was the African ambassador for MakerDAO and organised a number of meetups at Ghanaian universities. His passion for community building and problem solving was the drive behind the creation of the DeFi Africa Network with the intention of onboarding Africans into DeFi space.  Yakubu states the need for selective masterminds with acute knowledge of the African financial space to create a roadmap to onboard Africans into the DeFi space, as well as develop a model for long-term sustainability. A booming DeFi ecosystem in Africa is key to transforming the continent’s ailing financial economy for the better.  DeFI Africa is an organisation with a mission to, amongst other things, establish industry standards for a thriving Defi space in Africa and advocate for the adoption and use of DeFi technology. They aim to achieve this through a stepwise approach of first creating a community, educating community members and then securing strategic partnerships and sponsorships from high-profile DeFi protocols including UniSwap, XDC, Celo and Bankless Dao, amongst others in the pipeline.  DeFi Africa is creating a networking platform for builders, innovators which will make it easy for new people to onboard and for existing players to be kept up to date on emerging trends.  Yakubu also cites the need for a wealth of diverse talent in the growing community including policy makers, veterans and enthusiasts. .  Although ticket sales for the physical attendance of the summit have ended,the event will be livestreamed on their youtube channel.
