NEAR have been partnering with Sankore to drive onboarding onto its blockchain and larger ecosystem, including holding meetings to educate about crypto and web3. Sankore also has a track record of supporting several forward-thinking blockchain projects, making it a god candidate to help drive NEAR’s activities.

Kenya joins a growing list of NEAR hubs in China, the Balkans, and Ukraine, with many more in the works. Led by great local entrepreneurs, NEAR Hubs operate as independent legal entities in full alignment with the foundation’s mission and objectives.

All regional hubs are vital to onboarding users into the NEAR ecosystem to help build a multi-chain, open web future.
