First set of Blockchain Graduates emerge in Kenya.

The DLBRT Blockchain for Business Course was held at Strathmore Business School from March 9th – 30th 2019. The first set of graduates have completed their course. The Blockchain business course was birthed after Kenbright Actuarial & Financial Services (KAFS) and Strathmore Risk Management Centre signed an MOU on Blockchain Research. The program was among the first to get on track after the MOU on Blockchain Research was signed.


The course was an opportunity for the students to learn how cryptocurrencies are used in a real business case.  It covered the following subjects for the recent graduates and has proved to be an eye-opener and insightful learning experience for them:

Introduction to Distributed Ledgers and Blockchain Technologies (DLBRT).

Blockchain Architecture: Components of a Smart Contract and the Ethereum Virtual Machine.

The Intersection of Smart Contracts with human readable content to form Smart Contract Templates.

Cryptocurrency Formation using ERC-20 Standards as a basis for Token Economics.

Among the graduates was also atrice Wanjiru, the owner of the first business in Kenya to start accepting Bitcoin for payment. atrice Wanjiru runs the renowned business and the graduation celebration was held at her restaurant.

This is officially the first blockchain class in Kenya and the graduates happily let loose last weekend and were presented their certificate of completion individually.
