The cryptocurrency ecosystem, specifically in Africa, has been propelled by regular events in every part of the continent. These fairs have pushed crypto adoption, which is still relatively low, to a quantifiable number of Africans.
Among the propellers and believers in the workability of crypto events are ETHSafari. They believe that events help projects make connections, build crypto communities and increase the visibility of the compound crypto ecosystem.

“Great events leave space for others to bring their creativity and energy. We have purposely left many gaps in the Nairobi schedule so our local friends can host events and meetups,” ETHSafari core contributor Sunny Satva said.
Ethereum Foundation Africa Fellow and an instigator of ETHSafari Benson Njuguna said: “We’ve already had more than 270 signups for the event with nothing more than some dates and a logo announced to date. It shows that there’s huge interest in the space. We’re excited to fill a gap in hosting the very first Ethereum ecosystem event in the region and setting the stage for many future ETHSafari events around the continent.
