Nigeria – a key region for innovation and economic developments in Africa

Nigeria is a key region and the economic engine for Western Africa. To drive adoption and innovation in Nigeria is, therefore, an important item on the BSV Blockchain Association’s agenda. The government sees the training of developers as key to preparing the country for the upcoming digital transformation.

In the country’s strategy, Nigeria is not only making up for infrastructural disadvantages, but taking the opportunity to achieve success and innovation beyond Africa. With this aim in mind, the government has recently set the goal to train 1,000,000 developers within an 18-month time frame.

The Blockchain Developer Summit will act as a beacon for the growing developer community in Nigeria and will display the unbounded scalability and utility of the BSV blockchain.
