The Ghana Information Technology and Telecom Awards (GITTA), in its 12th year, has recognized Binance, as the most digital innovative blockchain of the year 2022.
GITTA has become the cornerstone that promotes and celebrates successful ICT innovations across various sectors and industries in Ghana.
The awards ran under the theme: “Rewarding, and Promoting Excellence in Digital Innovations”, which reflects on and celebrates the progress of successful technological innovations, and enhances the Ghanaian digital community as part of the Government’s vision for a more robust digital economy.
The award was presented to Binance blockchain giant for its unwavering commitment to providing its 120 million users access to financial freedom.
“As a company of the future, Binance continues to evolve, build and find solutions in real-time. This award is a testament of our unwavering mission to take financial inclusion for Africans to the next level and showcases our commitment to our users and the crypto community at large”, said Emmanuel Ebanehita, Marketing Lead, Binance Africa, while receiving the Award.
He further said Innovation is at the heart of what crypto and blockchain stand for, where the internet (Web2) revolutionized the transfer of information.
With a vision to increase the freedom of money globally, Binance has continued to expand its product line beyond the exchange by offering access to a vast array of financial tools and innovative job opportunities that blockchain provides.
From Trust Wallet to Coin Market Cap, Binance NFT to Binance Earn, they cater to virtually any interest across the broad spectrum of what the technology has to offer. The past year has also seen the introduction of Auto-Invest, Binance Live, Learn and Earn, and a host of other services.
In 2018, Binance Labs, a chain agnostic incubator and the venture capital arm of Binance invested in and incubated over 200 projects worldwide.
Binance Labs recently closed a $500M investment fund to boost blockchain, Web3, and value-building technologies. The fund would allow Binance Labs to continue its successful run and invest in more promising projects.
In 2020, Binance rolled out the Binance Master class programs across the continent to teach Africans the fundamentals of cryptocurrencies, how to identify scams, and safeguard their crypto journey.
The company has provided free crypto education to over 600,000 Africans. This is even more important today, in a post-pandemic world that is plagued by economic downturn and rising inflation.
As blockchain technology continues to revolutionize economies, Binance is ensuring its users have access to essential resources that will inevitably help them succeed.
Binance has also been keen on the need for effective and appropriate regulation that boosts mainstream adoption of digital assets. Over the past year, the company has engaged with governments and regulatory bodies across the globe at unprecedented levels in the industry.
