Michael Kimani

I am a thought leader in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry with over 5 years experience in this emerging industry as a consultant, practitioner, speaker, writer and champion.

Right now, I am a co-founder and Chief Marketing officer at Chamapesa, a company using blockchain elements to digitize the indigenous social savings groups culture of Africa. Previously, I led Umati Blockchain Ltd. as CEO, consulted for East Africa’s pioneering blockchain startups such as Bitpesa and have been part of ECAF, an arbitration forum for the world’s leading $8 billion valued EOS blockchain governance.

I shape opinions and provide strategic leadership on how blockchain and cryptocurrency technology will shape the future of Africa. I have been featured on BBC, CNN, French TV, K24, Fast Company, QZ Africa and participated at dozens of events across Africa for my compelling thoughts on how Africa can harness this great opportunity.

Often, I will share my thoughts and opinions on this blog, on twitter, Kenyan Wallstreet and selected publications that will have me. I also lead the blockchain community in Kenya as Chairman of the Blockchain Association of Kenya.

Currently building homegrown human capital through blockchain education and training.
