Community Address

Speaking within the context of the local blockchain industry and its potential for positive integration in Kenya, Lorena Mathendu, Community Manager for East Africa, stated: “Our mission as Binance is focused on dispelling myths on the crypto industry, especially in East Africa.

“With these community meet-ups, we aim to bridge the knowledge gap when it comes to the lack of awareness of Binance as an ecosystem provider for blockchain and Web3 technology in East Africa.”
