Adaverse has had the pleasure of hosting several successful networking and community events across Africa in collaboration with EMURGO Africa and several other key blockchain stakeholders. These events have brought together blockchain enthusiasts, startups, investors, and industry experts, creating a vibrant space for innovation and collaboration.

Blockchain Founders Hangout #BFH

Our signature meetup event, the Blockchain Founders Hangout debuted in Lagos, Nigeria, which we hosted twice to accommodate the big community of blockchain enthusiasts. Then we took #BFH to other parts of Nigeria in Abuja, Kano, and then to Eastern Africa in the beautiful city of Nairobi, Kenya, bringing together over 3000 attendees in total. As we continue to expand our reach, we are excited to reflect on these past events and look forward to the upcoming ones.
