Beam Africa Community Update: June Edition

Welcome to yet another epic monthly community update from the stables of Beam Africa. June was a very eventful month for all of us. We witnessed AMA’s, collaborations with other communities, significant community growth, and a successful Hard Fork of the $Beam coin. A huge thanks to our amazing community for their undying support and to the Beam Africa team, for their dedication to engaging and promoting the Beam ecosystem.

There were several milestones during the month of which the most notable was the successful Hard Fork which birthed us into a new era of Confidential DeFi. The Hard Fork enables smart contracts (aka, Beam shaders), multiple Decentralized Applications (dApps) to be executed both in Beam Nodes and Wallets and a few bug fixes in the Beam wallet. We consider this achievement to be a remarkable success in every sense. To read more on Beam Shaders, follow this link. More information on the outcome of the Hard Fork can be found HERE.


  • Beam Africa held her weekly Beam Buddies Hangout on the Telegram voice chat in style. This time, 4 members of the community were invited as guests to speak on NFT and Blockchain gaming monetization. We also took a deep dive into decentralized finance, its pros and cons. Scarlet and Niran played hosts to these events. This was an exciting and educative moment for our community and we have Otemzi (a blockchain gaming pro), Caleb (a.k.a. The NFT god), Davizoe (Founder BEI) and Funzi (a blockchain developer) to thank.
  • Our Kenyan representative; Obinna, hosted an AMA with Jordan Muthembo, a Software and smart contract developer from East Africa (Kenya). The focus of the discussion was on Privacy and Decentralized Finance. At the end of the AMA, the members with the best questions for the guest went home with some RAYS tokens. Here is a recap of the AMA.
