IT advisory firm Space Kenya Networks has launched BitHub, an incubator dedicated to the development of blockchain technology across Africa.
BitHub is the first incubator to be run by Space Kenya Networks, and will bring together various individuals and organisations in a bid to use blockchain to drive innovation and find solutions to global problems.
“Our mission is to spread information and knowledge on the cutting edge blockchain technologies emerging within the global marketplace with the aim of solving problems here in Africa,” BitHub said.
“Our goal is to enhance the adoption of relevant blockchain technologies and realize the full potential of these platforms while bringing together key players in both the public and private sectors.”
The incubator wil be running an education and information campaign in a bid to counter the negative perception attached to bitcoin and blockchain in Kenya. BitHub is also now accepting applications for startups interested in using its incubation space from March.
