Given the success and positive feedback of last year's event, this year we aim to strengthen bonds and create synergy in the local Steemit community. This is a very powerful online platform and we would like participant input on how to get optimal use out of the platform.
Due to the fact that we are working in a faceless online community of digital friends, it would be very nice to put faces to names and to have a physical get together for a day of informative meetings and talks, followed by some networking drinks and a nice lunch. Being a small and nice community this is an opportunity to interact face to face and form bonds and even new ventures. In an online world we tend to miss the value of physical get togethers. And lets face it, a free lunch and networking drinks thrown in on top of an compelling array of speakers and topics is almost enough reason to attend.
This is also a great opportunity to focus and have an in-depth authoritive discussion about crypto currencies in general. For this slot we have scheduled a well known and respected BitCoin expert and advisor.
We are excited to host you, to get to know you and to hear what you are up to and if there are something unique or localised brewing and hatching in the African Steemit community. For all the Africans Steemians out there who are not part of the new African SteemitChat channel, please let us know in the comment section. We are having a lot of good and beneficial discussions there.
