Blockleaders.io co-founder Jillian Godsil was in attendance at the Seamless South Africa conference held in Cape Town on March 11nd to 13th, 2019.
Jillian was leading a workshop at the pre-conference as well as speaking in the main conference and further in one of the seminar talks.
Jillian said: “This is my first time in Cape Town and it was exciting to hear from many banking and payments specialists looking at the issues facing this continent. One thrust was to bank the unbanked using emerging technology to grasp with the particular issues including mobile penetration, lack of infrastructure and a growing population.
“Another thrust came in the form of the pro cryptocurrency brigade that wanted to go in the opposite direction – to unbank the world. They argued that just because developing countries leapfrogged technology, ie in telecoms terms skipping the land line and going directly to mobile – does not mean that they go in the same direction.
“This continent is very much going to change the way we adopt DLT – watch out world,” she said.
Seamless is the region’s leading payments and commerce technology conference and exhibition. The event has separate conference agendas covering the world of Payments, Fintech, Ecommerce and Retail. For more information, please visit https://www.terrapinn.com/exhibition/seamless-africa/index.stm
