It is always an awesome thing to connect with likeminded entrepreneurs, especially when the industry is Blockchain!

I caught up with 3 Guest Speakers from “Surfing the Block”, an event that BECSA (Blockchain Entrepreneurs Club SA) hosted in Umhlanga, KZN, on Thursday 30 August 2018, and spoke with them about what it is that they’re doing in the blockchain space in South Africa.

And trust me, there’s a lot going down! You can check out the podcast below, where it is also available on all the major Podcast service providers (iOS, spotify, etc.)…

Here are some pics I took of the event as well…
