BitKE Hosts the First Blockchain and Crypto Crash Course for African Journalists

A while ago, we published a post demystifying an article written by one of the leading media houses in Kenya stating that more than 4 million Kenyans owned Crypto.

The article countered that claim with facts and set the record straight. 

The mis-reported article brought to attention the fact that most news reporters lack the knowledge on how to report on crypto and blockchain.

As much as the technology has been around for a while, getting credible information to report on is a task and most journalists don’t know where to find credible the resources of information or how to go about analyzing existing data and information.

We understand that crypto and blockchain knowledge has not been well spread out in Kenya and the rest of Africa, and that is why we decided to find a solution.

BitKE has partnered with CELO, the mobile-first blockchain for emerging markets, to bring free education on how to report on Crypto and Blockchain to Kenyan journalists.
