Changpeng Zhao, the founder and CEO of Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency and blockchain infrastructure provider, recently visited Ivory Coast and Senegal as part of a global tour to meet with Binancians and collaborate with policymakers. CZ’s visit to the region included meetings with Ivory Coast President Alassane Dramane Ouattara and Senegal President Macky Sall, among others.
Changpeng, also known by his initials “CZ,” expressed the company’s commitment to collaborating with African policymakers while emphasizing the importance of blockchain to the financial economy. “Africa is primed for crypto adoption because blockchain provides financial accessibility that many Africans do not currently have,” CZ said.
During his visit, CZ announced Binance’s partnership with Jokkolabs, one of Africa’s first social impact hubs. As part of this collaboration, Binance will launch a blockchain awareness and education program in Francophone Africa as part of this
“Together, we will strengthen the region’s position as a center of blockchain innovation and entrepreneurship,” he said. The collaboration will include a monetary donation for community education workshops aimed at increasing blockchain literacy and skills. Binance aims to grow the fintech community in Francophone Africa by empowering enthusiasts to build blockchain solutions and solve real-world problems.
CZ’s visit comes just a week after Binance announced its partnership with Senegalese Khaby Lame, the most-followed TikTok creator. It also comes just a few months after Binance sponsored AFCON, Africa’s largest international football championship, demonstrating Binance’s commitment to driving blockchain adoption in the region.
