Shaping the MENA Region Technology Landscape
The Hashgraph Association, a non-profit organisation promoting the use and adoption of the Hedera network, recently said it had entered into a partnership with the Tunisia-based Dar Blockchain. Through this collaboration, Hashgraph Association and Dar Blockchain said they hope “to nurture projects, facilitate growth, and profoundly shape the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) technology landscape.”
According to a press statement, the two entities hope to achieve the set objective via meetups, hackathons, and university groups. In addition, the two groups said they will be publishing a monthly podcast.
Commenting on their organization’s decision to partner with the Hashgraph Association, Mohamed Mnif and Jaafar Saied, both co-founders of Dar Blockchain, said:
By providing training sessions that dive into the Hedera Network, and setting up chapters in local universities to connect students from different backgrounds, Dar Blockchain and The Hashgraph Association will lay the foundation for the true realization of DLT [distributed ledger technology].
The duo added that their organization’s partnership with the Hashgraph Association also underlines the former’s commitment to empowering the MENA’s next generation of innovators.
For his part, Kamal Youssefi, the president of the Hashgraph Association, insisted that the collaboration will prove instrumental in accelerating the adoption of DLT in the region.
Meanwhile, the press statement revealed that the four hackathons which are set to start in October will be “a sourcing phase for an upcoming incubation program tailored for the North African community.” Besides the hackathons, the Hashgraph Association and Dar Blockchain will also offer tailor-made training sessions and foster the growth of communities and enterprises.
