An Impact community that enables Africans to discover decentralized money and blockchain technology while driving capacity building and economic empowerment.
Bankless Africa continues to grow as the go-to education and information source for many everyday Africans on all things crypto and web3, truly embodying the bankless mission and vision.
It’s a match through the bear trenches. And we remain resolute and shipping-focus!
Bankless Africa Podcast
The Bankless Africa podcast continues its growth in download numbers.
We crossed listens in over 100 countries and grew our download numbers significantly.
We also updated our Sponsorship packages and reached out more. Unfortunately most potential sponsors claim the bear market is not favorable. We are not giving up though.
Pidgin Parlour Crypto Podcast
.The Pidgin Parlour podcast also experienced great growth crossing 5000 downloads.
Communlatively the podcasts from the Bankless Africa community has crossed 35000 downloads
Newsletter & Publication
Due to funding constraints, we had to adjust the newsletter publication rate from weekly to monthly. Despite a lack of funding for the last 2 seasons, we have continued to keep the newsletter alive to continue to provide insight and impact for our audience.
We are currently at 357 subs with a 37% open rate.
We have started shipping on our BlocScribe mirror publication. We are currently running a content campaign where we publish optimism content on there for people to collect. We intend to leverage this to apply for RPGF from Optimism as part of a current ongoing integrated content campaign with other bDAO projects.
Community & IRL
We media partnered with Blockchain & Beyond conference which saw 2000 + attendees.
New event - media partner and co-organizer of EthAccra
Bankless Africa is helping organize EthAccra, a 3-day in-person hackathon aimed at educating young generations of web3 developers and builders. The hackathon will encourage the creation of new applications to help address local problems in West Africa and advance the Ethereum community in West Africa.
We will continue building Bankless Africa into the ideal crypto education and information hub for the everyday African while inspiring a new breed of cryptonatives to add value to the Web3 space. We also aim to improve our content strategies to optimize for high-impact and potential revenue generation.
