Sequel to the announcement of the community Hub Program and the announcement of Hubs to start by May 1st during the Wednesday 27th April 2023 Community call, I present to you the Pocket Network Africa Core team and community.
As a community builder, experience has proven that expanding community growth is done via certain activities and we from Africa have come to provide those activities to add to the growth of Pocket.
These activities include
- Translation of materials both developer-related and normal articles translation for local consumption
- Onboarding on builders
- Onboarding of developers to take advantage of the opportunities provided by Pocket
- Onboarding of community members
- Brand representation at events, both offline and online
- Social media presence growth
Below are some of the benefits Pocket Network can gain from Africa based on the growth of Blockchain in the continent.
Growing blockchain adoption: Africa is experiencing a rapid increase in blockchain adoption, mainly due to the continent’s large unbanked population and the high cost of traditional financial services. This presents an opportunity for Pocket Network to tap into a growing market.
High mobile penetration: Africa has a high mobile penetration rate, with over 80% of the population having access to mobile phones. This presents an opportunity for Pocket Network in offering builders in building mobile-based blockchain services, which can be accessed easily by the population.
Diverse blockchain use cases: Africa has a diverse range of blockchain use cases, such as cross-border payments, remittances, supply chain tracking, and digital identity management. This presents an opportunity for Pocket Network to offer tailored services to meet the specific needs of different African markets.
Regulatory environment: The regulatory environment for blockchain in Africa is still evolving, with some countries adopting a more innovative approach to blockchain regulation. This presents an opportunity for Pocket Network to work with regulators to establish a favourable regulatory environment for blockchain services.
Overall, Africa has a lot to offer to Pocket Network, including a growing market, high mobile penetration, diverse use cases, and a favourable regulatory environment.
