After discussions in the Togolese Republic, Zhao journeyed on to Uganda where they were met Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.

The Ugandan officials met with the Binance team to better understand the opportunities that cryptocurrencies and blockchain tech have to offer.

The meeting comes before the Africa Blockchain Conference to be held in Uganda on May 23 to 24. The conference is organized by the Blockchain Association of Uganda and will have President Museveni himself be the chief guest.

With Zhao being the pioneer that put Malta in the blockchain map, things are looking good for the African nations.
