In a bid to deepen knowledge on cybersecurity and Blockchain technology across Nigeria, Cyberchain, a decentralised, brand-neutral and people-focused company is championing the benefits of Blockchain technology to Nigeria’s digital economy
“Creating more job openings 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 can contribute to the nation’s GDP, among others,” Jude Ozinegbe, founder, Cyberchain stated.
According to him, Cyberchain was born out of the need to ensure Nigerians get proper sensitisation about the numerous benefits of the digital economy. He stated further that the conference will be held at the NAF Conference Centre, Kado, Abuja Nigeria.
“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.
“There are however multiple factors that can affect the growth and expansion of the digital economy, a few are infrastructure, innovations, policies, access to funding and proper education, amongst others,” Ozinegbe stated.
He stated that the Abuja conference is coming after a string of conferences held in recent times when it embarked on a national tour this year with the theme ‘Embracing the Metaverse Economy’.
It started the conferences at the city of Akure in Ondo State in March; then Uyo in Akwa Ibom State in May and Benin City in Edo State in July.
