The IITPSA Blockchain Special Interest Group (SIG) was started by John Singh, who is both an IITPSA KZN Chapter Committee Member and an IITPSA Board member. The Blockchain SIG is targeted at the South African blockchain and crypto-currency community.

The purpose of the SIG is to help people understand the complex technologies behind the blockchain so that they can make better decisions on how to use the technology. The SIG will present carefully researched information to the blockchain community so that they can separate hype from reality. Blockchain technologies and crypto have been invented and they are here to stay so everybody needs to understand it to meet the opportunities and challenges this exciting technology presents.

The objectives of the Blockchain SIG are:

  • To host regular events that advance the knowledge of the Blockchain SIG community.
  • To report back on significant blockchain events such as Blockchain Africa.
  • To encourage discussion with government and policymakers
