Welcome to the collaborative initiative between PositiveBlockchain and the Africa Blockchain Institute – mapping the promising African impact blockchain solutions!
The “Africa Web3 Impact Database” is a 2-month open initiative aimed at listing impactful projects and startups utilizing web3 and blockchain technologies for social and environmental good in Africa.
Our goal is to provide updated 2024 insights in the key trends and developments in the African continent, identify the new champions and innovations that are taking ground and provide relevant use cases for replication and scaling locally or beyond.
Through this collaborative effort, we aim to create a valuable resource that not only showcases the diverse range of blockchain projects in Africa but also serves as a catalyst for knowledge-sharing, collaboration, and inspiration. The initiative will foster a vibrant ecosystem, connecting stakeholders, and accelerating the positive impact of blockchain solutions on the continent.

We are following definitions, inclusion criteria, the database schema and tools of PositiveBlockchain which curates the largest open database of such projects and startups (1500 listed as of January 2024). We will update existing entries and add new ones from projects with positive social or environmental impact with either a headquarter or a local implementation project in Africa.

Such an approach has already been used for different reports in the past:
