ACE-FI (Algorand Centre of Excellence for Fintech Innovation) is an initiative based at the University of Cape Town. Fostering financial innovation, ACE-FI is leading rigorous research into digital currencies and blockchain-based finance.

ACE-FI’s research covers three main areas:

  1. Research: Making meaningful contributions at the forefront of current knowledge in the field through rigorous academic research on blockchain, central bank digital currencies, privacy, cyber security, and digital inclusion
  2. Community and Innovation: An innovation hub for student-led startups with a uniquely African focus. In addition to contributing to the overall Algorand ecosystem, it helps translate the latest academic research into both non-commercial (open source) projects and commercially viable startups
  3. Policy and Industry Insight: The hub will become a platform for thought leadership, and in particular for ongoing engagement with policy- and law-makers, as well as with the financial services industry
