The 8th East African Blockchain and Cyber Security Conference 2018. The conference took place at the International University of East Africa.

The conference was opened by the Vice Chancellor of the university, Dr. Emeka Akaezuwa. Many interesting topics and discussions were touched that are relevant to the blockchain, cybersecurity and a combination of them and we’re proud to name a few of it.

We were happy to present our topics and to be able to listen to other topics from the area of blockchain and cybersecurity.
