A few years ago, cryptocurrencies were the new technology that needed explaining. Today, the global cryptocurrency adoption is skyrocketing and interestingly, Africa is among the leading horses in this race – with Nigeria and Kenya among the top 6 of the 2021 Global Crypto Adoption Index’s top 20.
In fact, data indicates that Nigeria peer-to-peer (P2P) Bitcoin trading value between January and March (Q1 2021) alone is worth $99.1 million. That is $61 million above the 2nd placed country on the continent, Kenya’s ($38.4 million).And, the reason is not far-fetched.
Increasingly, citizens are seeking new ways to send and receive remittances as well as carry out business transactions while preserving their savings in the face of currency devaluation. Cryptocurrency is many people’s means to unfettered financial power and future security.
As a tech-driven media house that is aimed at providing people-oriented content with a view to contributing to the growth of the African space, our purpose is to lead a timely conversation in the cryptocurrency space.
Hence, we introduce the maiden edition of the “Technext coinference”.
The event promises a line-up of influential speakers that will share insightful thoughts that will inspire the attendees to take advantage of the numerous benefits of cryptocurrency. We will be unveiling the exciting line-up in the coming weeks. Watch out!
