Ditcoin is taking the African market by a storm. Africa’s first privacy coin as the cryptocurrency is often referred to is taking things a notch higher by appointing a new PR officer to handle its affairs.  Brooke Miller the new Public Relations officer has worked with many businesses across America, Europe and the middle East. She will be dealing with questions and information from people who are not yet convinced of the safety, investment potential and ease of use that Ditcoin presents.

Earlier in the week Ditcoin had announced its new CEO Emeka Tony who had high hopes for the coin. He had announced his hopes that, “in a couple of months, we expect to see Ditcoin in coinmarketcap, Dit Refill, Ditpay, Airdrops, New exchangers and partnerships.”  He was also appreciative of the support they had got so far saying, “I want to use this medium to appreciate everyone who has bought into this vision and is still running with it. I pledge in my capacity as the new CEO to be a team player because together we can achieve great feats and make great impacts in this blockchain ecosystem.”

Ditcoin which is a privacy coin built on the Monero Blockchain to suit the African situation, the coin has other services to offer. They include DitPay module which is the world’s first “CryptoCurrency Powered e-commerce & Payment Processor”. Mr Brooke Miller expressed her excitement about the new prospect saying, “I am very excited about ditcoin and the possibilities and future it holds.” She expressed her dismay about the amount of resources and minerals the world had taken out of Africa and how she is glad that the coin would be bringing real indepence to the people.

Brooke Miller explains saying, “Tony has a vision of being able to be independent within the country using diction. Just as of bitcoin was being created for Africa. You know business is very different in Africa than it is in other parts of the world. It is extremely important to be able to have a safe secure way to be able to refill phone which is a day to day basis in Africa. And also to be able to pay, to be able to pay safely, to be able to pay quickly to be able to maybe send money when you don’t need people to see where your money is going.”

Kenya is Getting Ready For A Blockchain Based Election

Published

on

The Kenyan electoral umpire, Independent and Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has announced that it would use blockchain for its presidential elections in 2022. The electoral umpire say it has set-up a team to oversee the adoption of blockchain in its next presidential poll.

Blockchain technology is the technology responsible for the distributed nature, sanctity and immutability of bitcoin and altcoin transactions. The qualities of blockchain is the main point of attraction for IEBC who has overseen elections where hundreds have been killed in tumultuous ballots.

A statement by IEBC Chairman:

“The legal reform activity is at the preliminary stages and the commission will be conducting stakeholders engagement, including incorporating views…”

Previous elections have been fraught with allegations of rigging which the electoral commission aims to put to rest by ensuring real-time election update to aspirants and voters. Last presidential election saw opposition candidate, Raila Odinga rejecting the outcome of the election and declaring himself President. The 2007 presidential election also saw sectarian violence where over 1,000 persons were killed before Odinga agreed to a power sharing deal with the government of Mwai Kibaki. These election-related violence has been widely condemned by the international community.

In the history of Kenyan elections since 1991, reprehensible irregularities, bloody uproar and killings have greeted elections.

“…The priority areas for legal reform identified by the Commission includes; electoral technology – adoption of blockchain/distributed ledgers to enable presidential candidates securely access results real-time, enhancing transparency and alleviating suspicion/perceptions of opacity.”

It is hoped with the adoption of distributed ledger technology that elections would be free, fair and credible. it is believed that Blockchain would impart it’s praised qualities of trust, voter anonymity, fraud-deterrence and transparency in the presidential elections. These will lead to a decrease in voter apathy, while resulting in voter confidence in the integrity of election outcomes.

Earlier this year, Sierra Leone claimed it has successfully implemented the first blockchain election.
