Stakeholders in the Blockchain industry are set to brainstorm on how the sector can boost its contribution to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at the 4th National Cyberchain Conference and National Tour 2022, scheduled to hold in Abuja.
According to the organiser and founder of Cyberchain, Jude Ozinegbe, the conference themed “Embracing the Metaverse Economy” will hold on October 22, 2022, at the NAF Conference Centre Kado, Abuja.
Cyberchain converges some of the best minds in the tech space annually and connects them with enthusiasts eager for the knowledge shared by these experts.
Blockchain developers, founders and investors have also found Cyberchain events [to be] perfect fits for engaging and fostering viable business relationships.
“As technology continues to foster the growth of businesses across the globe, it has become imperative for Nigeria to be positioned as a contributor to the fast-growing digital economy.
“Cyberchain was born out of the need to ensure Nigerians get proper sensitisation about the numerous benefits of the digital economy, which include but are not limited to creating more jobs for Nigerians, ease of doing business, transparent governance, safe online presence and even placing Nigeria on the global map by creating world-class projects that contribute to the nation’s GDP,” Ozinegbe said.
The national conference and tour commenced in Akure Ondo state in March, while the tours for Uyo, Akwa Ibom Benin City, Edo, were held in May and July, respectively.
Speakers lined up for the conference include the founder of Domineum Blockchain Mohammed Jega, founder at Convexity and A&D Forensics Adedeji Owonibi, investment manager at Adaverse William Phelps, among many others.
The grand finale of the national tour will hold in Lagos on November 12, 2022, with more industry leaders, like Chris Ani of DabaTV, Tony Emeka of CryptoTV Plus, Chuta Chimezie of BNUG, Kristian Kruz of Element USA, among others.
