Binance | Binance in Africa

Emmanuel Babalola is a pioneer in Nigeria’s Blockchain Landscape. He is the former Binance Africa Director and CEO at Bundle, a social finance platform. Being a founder and member of the SiBAN advisory board, he remains a core influence in the Nigerian and African blockchain space, and a strong believer in impact innovations that drive prosperity on the African continent

Emmanuel expresses his vision to contribute in setting Africa at the forefront of global innovation using blockchain technology, and by collaborating with relevant stakeholders in the industry to provide resources needed to create impactful solutions that have particular use-cases to Africa. The best way to solve the current problems in the continent is to allow in-dwellers to build solutions for the continent.

The question of how best to put the power of blockchain technology in the hands of the ordinary person is one that must be given utmost attention. He cites the advantage that Africa has based on a large population demographic of youths which is indicative of sufficient human resources to champion the cause of blockchain technology in Africa.

Emmanuel speaks on Binance’s educational efforts to teach Africans about crypto, with much emphasis on the youths in the population. Laying much emphasis on the ripple effect of educating a single individual, he reiterates the efficacy of word-of-mouth as a strategy to onboarding more people into crypto. He emphasise on the need for fundamental infrastructure  to position Africans to grow and retain talent. He again restates the unwavering support of Binance for blockchain education and its belief in Africa as a potential global hub for blockchain technology.
