This week in Cardano

While every week is jam packed with happenings in the Cardano ecosystem, both behind the scene and on stage, this week’s online event is surely big enough to usurp this week’s article. On Thursday, IOG will hold it’s Cardano Africa 2021 special on 29 April 2021, at 16:30 UTC.

If you have been following the space or LIDO Nation for a while, then you are already too familiar with this song. Cardano Africa special has been announced, delayed, pushed back, for months. IOG would tout that it’s perhaps happening as part of their monthly update, then nothing new would be announced. After a while IOG started promising an announcement big enough to warrant its own event, separate from the monthly updates.

Patience is the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting. If you’ve been patient, prepare to have your peace transcended to joy! Why is this announcement important to the everyday person?

Assuming this announcement brings a substantial Cardano blockchain utility use case to Ethiopia, it would pave the way to a flood of other utility experiments. With each experiment, Cardano will get closer to delivering on the promise of higher levels of agency and control of your identity, data, finance and governance.

When change comes knocking, nobody wants to be the first to open their hearts and doors. After this week, everyone will be clamoring to be the second, third, and so forth. In a shorter time than you think, one of these opened doors will lead straight to you.
