Uwezo Internet Initiative


For A Sustainable Future For All


About This Technology

Uwezo is the blockchain-enabled platform powering Sustainable Trade: starting in Africa to connect Africa-related Trade Partners to Markets across the world.

Our platform is the Engine for Sustainable Trade and Economic Resilience.

Uwezo's blockchain bridge completes transactions that are hundreds, and sometimes thousands of times faster than conventional Layer 1 blockchain solutions implementing Proof of Work systems.
Through the implementation of gossip protocols and our publishing of bridge states, we are able to finalize transactions in seconds while maintaining security, verifiability, and privacy.

Through our fast, secure, interoperable, and verifiable system, we enable value exchange for trade partners across industries, regions and markets.
We particularly partner with trade partners interested in championing sustainability in a verifiable way.
These trade partners join our ecosystem through The Great Green Bridge, a collaborative project between Uwezo and The Africa International Finance Center.
Members of The Great Green Bridge are known as Keepers of The Bridge.
