Growing blockchain adoption in Nigeria
Nigeria’s government sees the BSV blockchain as a key tool for creating jobs and improving education opportunities across the country. It is currently in the process of commissioning new AI and Blockchain training labs which are aimed at helping the people of Nigeria develop their skills in these emerging fields, with the ultimate goal of training one million new developers.
‘There are a lot of opportunities in blockchain, and it is critical in every business,’ said Kashifu Inuwa, Director-General of NITDA.
‘Talent is the human component of technology and innovation, with blockchain and emerging technologies being about the new solutions they are bringing on board. So, you need to task yourself to know which solutions or offerings the industry requires.’
Mohammed Ibrahim Jega, Co-Founder & Chief Business Development Officer of Domineum Blockchain Solutions, said the event is an opportunity to ‘demystify’ BSV and blockchain.
‘We are excited about this Blockchain Day summit which highlights the continued growth BSV is seeing in Nigeria and the rest of Africa,’ said
‘This is a great opportunity to educate investors and officials on the benefits of BSV and why it is the best choice for their start-ups or enterprises. Nigeria is poised to be at the forefront of BSV usage and we are committed to showing how Bitcoin and the blockchain are useful for the public, governments, and industries.’
