Africa Tech Summit London is an initiative that was launched in 2016 to share globally the growth in the tech ecosystem across Africa, a platform which Golix believes has the opportunity to strengthen its cryptocurrency exchange and reach out to the rest of Africa.
Speaking before departing for the Tech Summit, Kusangaya said that she was looking forward to networking with African blockchain experts.
“This is a very exciting Tech Summit, as it will give insight into Blockchain technology and at the same time explore the possible opportunities that we as Golix can harness to improve our services. There will be several tech companies attending the summit, which will give us the chance to see how they do things and map a way forward from that,” she said.
Over the past years, Golix staff members have attended several international summits that resonate with their vision to be the leading digital currency payments company in Africa.
