#Article : Startups in Kenya building Innovative Solutions on the Celo Blockchain

#Blockchain, a decentralised, distributed ledger for digital information is one of the most innovative technologies today and it is already disrupting various industries.

Blockchain powers cryptocurrencies and NFTs and can radically change multiple sectors, including payments, cybersecurity, healthcare among others.

Just this week, a consortium of leading #Ethereum decentralized finance (#DeFi) projects announced DeFi for the People, a collaboration of global crypto organizations united by a common goal: bringing DeFi to the 6 billion smartphone users around the world.

Built on Celo, the new initiative will offer more than $100 million in educational initiatives, grants, and incentives. The majority of program participants will jointly contribute half the funds for incentive programs.
