Blockchain kills several birds with a single shot in Kenya

With high literacy, welldeveloped infrastructure and connectivity, Kenya is a natural choice for those who are just beginning to venture into the world of blockchain. 

The road to progress

With M-PESA as a backdrop, the demand for technology solutions like blockchain has soared. Not just financial deals, but the technology has even revolutionized sectors like security, transport, health, insurance and motor vehicle in Kenya. Especially, businesses wanting to make a true social impact like providing more access to energy are the ones gaining more traction in the region. Such businesses seem to attract more investments and are launching quickly into the market like startups involved in micro-lending.

It is not just private Kenyan ventures that have taken an interest in blockchain. The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has announced that all vehicles running in the country will have an electronic motor vehicle identification service in which all vehicles will have an electronic sticker pasted on the windshields that will be detectable via special gadgets. The move will help in rooting out unsafe jalopies and help in the recovery of stolen vehicles. The data on the vehicles will be secured on a blockchain platform that is under development.

Kenya’s public health sector is installing a smart platform in all 98 public hospitals creating a shared hub where crucial data such as a patient’s history, hospital management and use of public resources will be monitored from the cloud-based database. A modernization programme being conducted by Japan’s Toyota Shusho Company and Kenya’s Seven Seas Technologies will eliminate the oft-tedious patient history re-writing exercise conducted every time someone visits a different hospital for treatment.

Yet, despite the government’s interest, blockchain and cryptocurrency are still meeting resistance from the nation’s financial regulators.

Patrick Njoroge, Governor of the Central Bank is a bit skeptical regarding the use of digital currencies saying “bitcoins operations are conducted on unregulated regimes that expose Kenyans to cyber fraudsters.” But financial market consultants have urged the government to change its stance and with the recent spate of developments, it seems the government is beginning to open up to the idea of blockchain and cryptocurrencies in general.

An optimistic future

With the ICT sector is growing exponentially in Kenya, a young and vibrant population with great ideas and companies Europe and North America and elsewhere to set up businesses in Kenya, the future is looking bright with a mix of good mix of good ideas and solid entrepreneurship. Kenya will go from nearly 6% connectivity to power the internet to 70% connectivity over the next decade.  A tremendous leap that will benefit people in many ways, giving them access to services that were not available in the past. Blockchain technology has the potential to provide even more access to essential services for people living in the most remote areas.

Blockchain shows the potential to enhance transparency and reduce long-standing inefficiencies and costs within multiple sectors of African economies. From enabling micropayment systems to digital identity management to smart contracts, blockchain-based solutions can transform traditional or nonexistent technology infrastructures in African nations and drive a new era of more inclusive growth. Investors and companies that operate in rapid-growth markets should keep a close eye on these exciting new iterations of homegrown innovation.

Further report. Criminal case found near railroad between 38th and 11th Street. Homicide. Completed. Criminal police, forensics, ambulance 300-070 dumps and emergency medical Finished.

Shakes looked at the 300-070 dumps finger, CISM Exam Dumps that root was cut off the bones exposed bones finger. She looked at the glittering diamond ring, those eyes, and that Cisco 210-260 Dumps twisted mouth Europe, that horrible mouth. Thriller spread throughout her Cisco 210-260 Dumps body. Emilia Shakes swimming in the water snake river during the summer camp, CISM Exam Dumps and absolutely Bestexamview did not hesitate to jumped from the 100-foot bridge, CISM Exam Dumps but as long as she thought of a hush think of Was tied into a ball, could not move, immediately fell into the feeling of panic like an electric shock. Because of this, Shakes walked so fast and Cisco 210-260 Dumps was so crazy when driving. As long as you Examtestview 300-070 dumps move, they can not catch you She heard a voice Examtestview and quickly looked up. A rumbling sound came from far and louder and louder. Few pieces of shredded paper are raised Bestexamview by the wind and fly along the rails. Dust circling around her, like an angry ghost. Then there was Bestexamview a deep whine Emiliano Shakespear, Bestexamview a five-foot-nine patrolman, found Bestexamview himself facing the locomotive of a 31-ton American-American company. The red, white, blue-faced steel behemoth Examtestview is approaching her at ten miles an hour. Stop Stop She shouted. The train driver ignored her. Shakes ran to Examtestview the railway, standing in the middle 300-070 dumps of Examtestview the rails, swinging his legs waving his arm, signaling the driver to stop moving forward. With a long and harsh brakes, the locomotive stopped. Driver head out of the window. You can not open here, she said to him. He asked her what it meant. She thought, he looked so young, actually driving such a large locomotive. Here is a crime scene, please turn off the engine. Miss, I did not see any crime. But Shakes did not have time to listen to him long-winded. She was looking up at a gap in the barbed wire fence to the west 300-070 dumps of the viaduct. Not far from above Bestexamview is Eleven Street. One way of trying to bring a victim here is to find that there is a way to stop the car at Eleven Street and drag the victim Cisco 210-260 Dumps across the narrow path to the edge of the cliff. If you park your car on the Bestexamview 37th Street in the horizontal direction, he may be seen by people in the windows of 20 apartments. 300-070 dumps The train, sir, just stop it here. I can not park the train here. Turn off the engine. In this 300-070 dumps case we can not turn off the train engine and 300-070 dumps it must be running. You call the dispatch or someone else to stop the train to Nankai. We can not do that. Get it right, sir, Ive noticed the number of your car The car Youd better do it right away Shakes roared. CISM Exam Dumps What do you want, Miss, give me a Bestexamview ticket But Emilio Shakus climbed back up the steep hill again. Her poor knuckles crunched, her lips covered in lime, dirt, and her own sweat. She drilled through the gap she had found on the tracks and turned Examtestview around to study the Javets Convention Center across 11th Avenue 300-070 dumps and across the street. The convention center is full of people today – there are participants and journalists. A huge banner reads Welcome United 300-070 dumps Nations Representative. Earlier in the morning, however, there was still Cisco 210-260 Dumps no one on the street, and the murderer could easily find a parking space Bestexamview CISM Exam Dumps in the street, before the people unwittingly moved Cisco 210-260 Dumps the victim to the tracks. Shakespeare strode to Eleventh Street and observed Cisco 210-260 Dumps the six-lane CISM Exam Dumps main road, which is now full of traffic. Let it go She burst into the car sea, calmly cut off traffic on the north lane. Several drivers tried hard to force her to issue two tickets in a row. In the end, they dragged a few rubbish bins to the center of the road CISM Exam Dumps as roadblocks to ensure that these good citizens abided by the rules.

He hurriedly recorded his conversation in a black book with 300-070 dumps a sweaty pen. Oh, just do it. Now, go to those trash cans, stay there and direct the traffic until the CISM Exam Dumps entire street is clear. Did you hear that She turned and left without saying anything good or not, A street, began to 300-070 dumps slowly move a few trash 300-070 dumps cans. Every driver who passed by her glared at her, Cisco 210-260 Dumps and some mumbled Cisco 210-260 Dumps in her mouth. Shakes glanced at the watch. Another hour I can hold on. 3 The peregrine falcon gently waving a few CISM Exam Dumps wings, landing in the CISM Exam Dumps edge of the windowsill. Bestexamview Outside the window, noon Examtestview the sun bright and dazzling, the weather seems to be extremely hot. Finally, the man murmured, turning his Examtestview head to the buzzing doorbell and looking at the door to the downstairs. Is he He shouted at the staircase, is it Lincoln Lyme turned his head to the window again without hearing any answer. The peregrine falcons head turned a Bestexamview little and Cisco 210-260 Dumps moved very fast, just like a spasm, immediately returning to the original elegant gesture of keeping. Lyme noticed the blood stained its paw, and a piece of yellowish flesh was pulled by its small, black, Bestexamview nut shell-like beak. It stretches short neck, move slowly Examtestview to the nest, the action is reminiscent of not a bird, but a snake. The peregrine Falcon dropped the meat CISM Exam Dumps into the small mouth of Bestexamview Cisco 210-260 Dumps a blue-winged bird. What I now see is the only creature in New York City without any natural enemies, Lyme thought. Maybe God except God. He heard footsteps, and someone was walking up the stairs. Is he He asked Thomas. The young man answered, No. Who is that The doorbell Cisco 210-260 Dumps rang, is not it Thomass CISM Exam Dumps eyes looked at the window. The bird is back.Look, theres blood 300-070 dumps on your windowsill.Do you see them The female peregrine faltered slowly into Lymes gaze. A blue-gray feather, gorgeous like CISM Exam Dumps fish. It is 300-070 dumps looking up, looking back and forth toward the sky. They are always together, will they be with them for life Exclaimed Thomas. Like a geese Lymes 300-070 dumps eyes returned to Thomas. The latter was bowing his strong, young waist forward, looking through the window, which was splashed with rain. Who is here Lyme asked CISM Exam Dumps again. He was annoyed by the deliberate Cisco 210-260 Dumps delay of young people. Visitors. Visitors Ha Lyme snorted. He tried to recall Cisco 210-260 Dumps when the last guest visit was. That is at least three months ago. Who Examtestview was the guest Examtestview last visited Maybe those reporters, or a distant relatives. Thats right, its Peter Chter, a Bestexamview spine neurologist in Lyme. Blaine has been here several times, but she Examtestview certainly can not be a visitor. Its so cold here, complains Tommy, reaching out to Cisco 210-260 Dumps open the window at the same time. Young typical performance. Examtestview Lyme thought. Do not open the window, he ordered, well, tell me whos coming Its cold. Youre going Examtestview to scare the bird.You can turn off the air conditioner.Ill be closed. Lets open again, said Tangmajas forcefully to lift the thick wooden frame of the window. The two birds got accustomed to playing since they moved in. Hearing the noise, Examtestview the two peregrine falcons Bestexamview turned Cisco 210-260 Dumps their heads and widened CISM Exam Dumps their eyes to the source of the CISM Exam Dumps noise. But they were just wide-eyed, still Bestexamview on the edge of the bay windows, overlooking monarchs overlooking the collapsed ginkgo trees in their territory and the car parked on both sides of the street. Lyme asked again Whos coming Leon Salet. Leon What did he do Thomas looked back and forth at the room.

It is clear that along with being the birthplace of mankind, Kenya will be the hotbed for new technologies. Corporates and governments are always on the lookout for avenues where they can get multiple points of view and witness different applications for blockchain that can be applied in many economic sectors.
