Cardashift appoints Joshua Akpan as Ambassador
Cardashift’s team is thrilled to announce the appointment of Joshua Akpan as Ambassador of Cardashift.
Joshua is the co-founder of Proof of Africa, a mission-driven Cardano skate-pool. The purpose is to get Africans onboard on the web3 movement and drive the adoption towards Cardano. As part of this ambition, he launched the African Blockchain for Development, aiming to breed highly skilled blockchain engineers in Africa.
Besides, Joshua is also the co-founder of Liqwid Finance, an open-source, algorithmic and non-custodial interest rate protocol built for lenders, borrowers and developers.
Joshua has been part of the Cardano ecosystem for four years. He was, at first, fascinated by the technological potential of blockchain. The focus on Africa vehiculated by the Cardano community has resonated particularly in him. His main driver is to develop impact projects on Cardano that have the potential to change the quality of life for people, notably in Africa.
“I was inspired by the journey made by Cardashift. I feel completely aligned with the people of Cardashift on their focus to generate impact projects backed by Cardano products. I am really excited to join such an ambitious project as ambassador.”
The Cardashift team is looking forward to working with Joshua. His role in the Cardano ecosystem will be a key enabler to reach the African community for Cardashift. His extensive network and entrepreneurship mindset will undoubtedly be of great help for us to source projects and local partners.
Cardashift is a community-run launchpad that raises funds, builds and accelerates startups that are solving social and environmental issues.
Cardashift is based on Cardano, the blockchain platform for change-makers, innovators, and visionaries.
