The Hyperledger Africa Chapter aims to showcase the broad range of Hyperledger projects and initiatives to the African audience.

This Chapter is responsible for:

  1. Growing the Hyperledger community in Africa,
  2. Promoting contributions to (global) Hyperledger projects, and
  3. Providing a platform for:
    1. Regional (Pan-African) collaboration,
    2. International (Global) collaboration,
    3. Technical Capacity Development, and
    4. Support for enterprise blockchain projects.


Our goals are to:

  • Help promote the adoption of Hyperledger projects across the 54 countries represented on the African continent.
  • Grow the Hyperledger user and developer community in Africa.
  • Promote contributions from African members back to any of the (global) Hyperledger projects.
  • Provide a credible platform for (product and technical) guidance and support.
  • Facilitate intra- and inter-continental collaboration on any of the Hyperledger projects and initiatives.


The anticipated activities will include (but not be limited to):

  • Maintaining an active and vibrant network of members across all 54 African countries, from which global ambassadors, mentors and other blockchain leaders can emerge.
  • Organizing technical events (including but not limited to hackathons, meetups, as well as education and training sessions).

  • Organizing business and industry meetups and exchanges to promote cross-pollination of ideas and best practices.

The following weekly meetings are conducted under the auspices of the India Chapter (updated times and other details can be found on the Hyperledger Calendar) :

  • Hyperledger Africa Monthly Meetup - proposed 2nd Thursday of every Month
  • Hyperledger Quarterly Hackathon - proposed 1st weekend of every Quarter

Virtual Format

Due to the prevalent circumstances surrounding the global Coronavirus pandemic of 2020, all activities are currently being conducted virtually for the foreseeable future. If and when this will change, such information will be adequate communicated with sufficient time consideration.
