Cardano is one of the few currencies in the space that aims to improvise and work for the betterment of the society and especially underdeveloped areas. They have been touring around Africa with the #TransformAfrica motive in places like Ethiopia and Rwanda. The team has been updating about the progress and are moving closer to their vision.
Input Output tweeted another update earlier today:
“Vision for #blockchain in #Africa is becoming a reality – Ethiopia and Rwanda are keen to realize the promise of the technology. Read about the recent achievements for #Cardano in Africa on the blog from @jjtoconnor, IOHK Director of African Operations.”
This long-term vision has existed longer than IOHK itself. John O’Connor, the director of African Operations mentioned how Charles Hoskinson’s talk about this in a TEDx event in 2014 encouraged him to join the Cardano project. He spoke about the mutual vision to make Africa a better and advanced nation.
Rick McCracken, a Twitterati says:
“This is great news Charles. You really are making the world a better place.”
IOHK and the Ethiopian government agreed mutually and signed a MoU to train and hire fresh software developers as they plan to use Cardano in its agriculture industry. The actual work begins now with the use of Cardano to solve real-world problems in Ethiopia and beyond. The training course and hiring plans as agreed by Charles, the founder of IOHK, and the idea to introduce Cardano in Ethiopian agriculture is the first of its kind ever in Africa.
The classes are planned to begin around September, expecting 30 women developers on the inaugural class. The trainees will then be hired based on their performance. The criteria will not only be restricted to the contribution to Cardano’s code but also the support to build the blockchain agriculture apps. The opportunity to make an impact on blockchain is huge with more than 80 million Ethiopians working in the industry.
John O’Connor expressed his gratitude stating:
“I thank the IOHK and Emurgo teams who flew out to be on the ground and help us establish our work.”
“But most importantly, I’d like to thank Yodahe Zemichael from the Science Technology and Information Centre and Dr Getahun Mekuria, Minister of Science and Technology. You have been more agile, proactive, and enthusiastic partners than we could have hoped for. We look forward to working with you.”
