Did I read this correctly that your ask is 125,000$?

Truthfully, the only one that matters here is “becoming a blockchain developer”.

Can you provide any evidence as to the developers that have been onboarded by the Academy and if they have found any places in established teams today?

Thank you for bringing this to us!


Hahaha no, There’s no ask.

Secret can choose to fund any of the courses they like :slightly_smiling_face:


Hello, Orageux 101. The Into web3 careers cohort is the 1st of its kind where we included blockchain specialized focussed development kit gathering 52 candidates interested in the project. We introduced this model due to increased displayed interest by our community members in our other educational activities. We are here to create a way on delivering blockchain classes to the 52 candidates and many more in Kenya campus institutions that we have worked with over the duration of our partnership.

To answer your question, we have not yet trained any blockchain students so far, however, this does not limit us from doing it since we have collected expertise in web education on various topics in Kenya.

Hello Secret Saturn.

It is our goal to be able to provide the learning instrument at an accessible cost and help our students and community grow, but the thing is the instructors need to be renumerated and the costs allude to what we have shared above. Also, these are some of the web3 education kits we provide, Secret is at liberty to select that which fits best with them to bring value to their ecosystem.


Firstly, i must commend Secret Africa for attracting this Establishment to secret, this shows that the awareness you guys have been creating is showing promise. Also, i commend Cryptocurrency Academy for this initiative of fostering crypto adoption to wider part of Africa.

From your proposal here, i am sure secret will be more interested in getting more developers that are vastly savvy in blockchain technology, my question here is can you buttress on the major skillsets of the team that will tutor the students on blockchain technology?

Also, if this partnership goes through which i am hopeful that it does, what will be the time duration of learning, before the trainees can be absorbed into secret?


Firstly, I would like to recommend the tireless efforts of Secret Africa community to foster the growth of secret and blockchain as a whole in Africa, this is a big step in the adoption of Secret and Web3 in Africa. Also, i would commend Cryptocurrency Academy for their initiative so far, bringing the good news of blockchain to their area through crypto education.

Cryptocurrency Academy will now get to learn more about secret and spread the news within it’s reach.

More winnings for secret Africa community!!


Kudos @Thepopeblack for establishing such a promising initiative. I hope it complement the already existing efforts to increase the adoption of Secret in Africa. I also look forward to more collaborations with other countries in Africa.



Reading giving me joy, see the passion for privacy in the web3 growing and extending across different communities world wide especially in Africa. Because i believe this technology has a lot to offer us . But my major interest is the development aspects in secret Network and its adoption.

Bearly but a few have access and guidance when it comes to web3 development especially with programming language like rust and others that aren’t popular here in Africa and of which Secret Network is built on.

So i urge you to foster the learning of this programming languages and skills towards growing the adoption of this wonderful technology into different areas and applications in Africa .

This is the time to use this technology in different industries and enterprises in Africa,

So i look forward to seeing what you will be doing using Scrts technology, cheers and goodluck with your endeavours .

Good job with what you are doing. Great job Scrt Africa


This potential partnership is a milestone event in the applications and precedence it would establish for Scrt Network in Africa.

Pre-existing initiatives like;

  1. Secret Family
  2. Secret University
  3. Secret Agency

Will greatly benefit from an instant expansion of reach, audience, (indirect) capital and human resources for a vibrant ecosystem of young tech enthusiasts.

That is raw material that can yield significant returns if deployed correctly.

Ofcourse, this is just one of many partnership talks currently underway by the Scrt Africa team headed by @Thepopeblack (I’m also proud to be a part of team and partners). See how this could mark the beginning of a cascade of partnerships and strategic collaborations with major stakeholders and tech communities and hubs across Africa.

This is both attainable and possible. Secret Africa and Cryptocurrency Academy’s partnership is a small, but significant step towards expanding the regional footprint of Blockchain Privacy in Africa.


not really sure what this has to do with secret network and not sure why we should fund courses to become a moderator for discord, telegram or to become a trader.

the only relevant course is to become a web3 developer and as was stated before you don’t have any experience to conduct such a course. we already funded secret university and it might be a better idea to direct any interested person (which we welcome) to these courses.

but funding these courses should not be in the interest of secret network. 125k…

Look forward to seeing more from secret Africa.


A good initiative i must commend. I hope to see the potentials from this partnership work out for SN Africa. A good time to be part of Secret Africa community. It’s a huge one at that tho.

This proposal (although not really a proposal) is in my opinion not interesting for the community pool. I get offers weekly from Crypto education platforms all in either their own region or with their own reach. Many of these proposals have better pitch decks and more established teams then the info i found in this proposal.

The reality is that Secret Network has to focus on global education first - mainly developer focused - before there is worth in exploring localised solutions like this. Educating people in local communities about Crypto is nice and all but this does not help the network wide KPIs like # of developers # of active wallets etc.

We already cast a wide net with education from the Secret agency and Developer education from Secret university. We can fund opportunities on top of that like the Barcelona #secret work shops by @SecretSkrillah and going to local events etc.

Casting an even wider net in trying to onboard a very localised community at a cost of ~$300 per user is just a no-go in my opinion. The crypto academy in Kenya can always collaborate with Secret agency to give a few in person workshops if they are willing to significantly decrease their ask. If funds would be required from the community pool then please realise that we request a detailed budget breakdown as laid out in the Governance charter.


Hello @Abdools

Thank you for the positive compliment, we truly appreciate positive energy as it drives us to achieve more.

Circling back to your question, we are handpicking individuals who have years of experience in building Blockchain applications here in Kenya and who have programming experience in React, JS, and Python, and have worked on building on at least two Blockchain. We are also Keen on picking talent that also has the capability to teach, assess and facilitate hackathons for Dapp development.

Are these people we have already?
We have a blockchain engineer who will be advising and assisting in the handpicking of the best Blockchain dev talent from our list of Blockchain developer recruitment applications. We are in the process of preparing ourselves to start training and invite the Secret Network team to be part of the screening process for our trainers as well.

I hope this gives you a clear picture of where we stand.

Happy Sunday.


Hello @ertemann .

Thank you for your feedback. We are open to discussing the way forward and making the training procedure sustainable for both parties.

I love the ideas of starting off with small workshops and scaling from there once forth if need be. We will be sharing our plans on this and drop it in the Governance Charter.
