Description: Mr Abraham discussed how Kaspa can be utilised as an efficient and secure payment system, shedding light on its advantages in the world of digital transactions.
Pre-Event Promotion: To promote the event, a radio program was organised on Hii5radio, an online radio station based in Wandegeya, Kampala Uganda. We managed to reach a larger audience through this program as it attracted many people from the local communities to sign up for the event. During the radio program, the speakers highlighted the importance of this event and what the participants would gain from this. The program introduced the concept of Kaspa to the listeners highlighting how Kaspa is to break into the cryptocurrency space, a technology that should be embraced.
Being an online radio station, we managed to get a high online engagement, getting listeners to join our social media communities, thereby creating an inclusive community of interested participants who were eager to attend the event.

We had the Hii5 Radio team on the ground and they managed to broadcast the event live. People who couldn’t manage to come to the location were able to listen in via Hii5 Radio. (www.hii5radio.online) .

The Kaspa Event-Kampala at Sheron Hotel was a successful educational endeavour that provided attendees with valuable insights into Kaspa currency, BlockDAG technology, payment systems, and blockchain. It was a remarkable opportunity for networking, and learning, moreso, some people who were green to the technology started using Kaspa right away.
The event would not have been possible without the support of Kaspa and the dedication of the organisers, speakers, and attendees. We also appreciate hii5radio for covering and broadcasting our event live on location.
We can surely say, there was an impact created.
