DeFi & NFTs gain traction. Kadidiatou Dem Tangara, Kognouman Fofana & Talhata Zourkarneini Tourez

“This masterclass subject was relevant to me as it questioned centralized finance. It allowed me to widen my understanding of finance beyond the banking system. I realized that there were new possibilities in accessing finance that were global and inclusive,” says Kadidiatou Dem Tangara.

Together with Kognouman Fofana and Talhata Zourkarneini Toure, Kadidiatou Dem Tangara is among the learners of the CryptoMasters series at Kabakoo Academies.

In our previous interview we spoke with Mathis Gontier Delaunay and Matthias Vallet both from KRYPTOSPHERE®, about their courses designed to provide learners with critical knowledge on Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and Decentralized Finance (DeFi), as well as with Leïla Keita, Partnership Officer at Kabakoo Academies, who explained the CryptoMaster series: “Blockchain and cryptos are often considered as leapfrogging solutions for the African continent so it is important for Kabakoo to train young Africans and open much-needed debates about the economic, social and environmental issues related to these technologies. We are very pleased to welcome Matthias and Mathis of KRYPTOSPHERE® in our CryptoMasters series at Kabakoo. The Kabakoo CryptoMasters series is the first comprehensive course dedicated to blockchain and cryptos in Mali and the broader Sahel region.

Hear from Kadidiatou Dem Tangara, Kognouman Fofana and Talhata Zourkarneini Toure about their learning experiences during the latest CryptoMaster courses on NFTs & DeFi at Kabakoo Academies:

Sebastian Klemm: Dear Kadidiatou Dem Tangara, why is this course subject relevant to you?

Kadidiatou Dem Tangara: I attended the course on “Decentralized Finance” (DeFi) by Mathis Gontier Delaunay of KRYPTOSPHERE®.

This masterclass subject was relevant to me as it questioned centralized finance. It allowed me to widen my understanding of finance beyond the banking system. I realized that there were new possibilities in accessing finance that were global and inclusive, everybody can access DeFi without meeting specific criteria.

What has been a defining moment for you in the course about DeFi? & How will you apply the gained knowledge & sustain your engagement for the topic?

Kadidiatou Dem Tangara: For me, the defining moment was the examples given, to understand how DeFi works. Even though it is inclusive, investing in crypto requires to be trained, focused and have good judgement.

I want to share what I have learned around me and go further on the questions that were a bit complex.

Sebastian Klemm: Dear Kognouman Fofana, why are the course subjects relevant to you?

Kognouman Fofana: Crypto is a trendy topic that people talk about a lot. I wanted to learn more about these growing technologies and the innovations they bring. The two masterclasses gave me a precise idea on how to create, buy and sell NFTs, how marketplaces are working as well as on the use and concepts of Decentralized Finance.

I attended both courses on “Non-Fungible Tokens” (NFTs) by Matthias Vallet as well as on “Decentralized Finance” (DeFi) by Mathis Gontier Delaunay of KRYPTOSPHERE®.

What has been a defining moment for you in the courses about DeFi and NFTs? & How will you apply the gained knowledge & sustain your engagement for the topic?

Kognouman Fofana: The whole courses were interesting, indeed. And to apply my knowledge, I keep learning about cryptos and share the skills acquired with other people interested in the topic.

Sebastian Klemm: Dear Talhata Zourkarneini Toure, why are the course subjects relevant to you?

Talhata Zourkarneini Toure: I attended both the course about “Decentralized Finance” (DeFi) by Mathis Gontier Delaunay and the one about “Non-Fungible Tokens” (NFTs) by Matthias Vallet of KRYPTOSPHERE®.

Today, it has been 6 months that I am interested in crypto and blockchain, and I am getting a better understanding thanks to the CryptoMasters series at Kabakoo Academies. Both the DeFi and NFT courses were very relevant to me, for I learned significantly more about these subjects.

What has been a defining moment for you in the courses about DeFi and NFTs?

Talhata Zourkarneini Toure: From both the NFT and DeFi course, the demonstration parts were the most defining moments. When Matthias shared his screen to show how to create, sell or buy NFTs, it was interesting to see how one can do that.

Similarly, during the DeFi workshop it proofed to be key that Mathis gave us a demo of how to do a smart contract and generally how a blockchain system works. These moments were really defining and made the workshops more practical.

How will you apply the gained knowledge & sustain your engagement for the topic?

Talhata Zourkarneini Toure: I have learned the basics about NFTs and DeFi and I think they are both futuristic topics with more development to come. Hence, I want to continue and deepen my own researches to know more about these topics, share my knowledge with my network and peers, and think about how to practically start investing in cryptos.
