Speaking on the forthcoming events, Cyberchain Founder, Jude Ozinegbe revealed that Cyberchain was born out of the need to ensure Nigerians get proper sensitisation about the numerous benefits of the digital economy.
Enumerating some of these benefits, the Digital Transformation and Blockchain Consultant reeled them out as “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.
“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.”
“The lowest hanging fruit but with the most impactful and long-lasting effect on the nation’s economy is education, which is what we have been doing with our national tour.
“Cyberchain is certainly one organisation that has been at the forefront of encouraging the growth of digital skills and by extension, improving the lives of Nigerians across boards,” he said.
Other activities billed as part of the grand finale in Lagos is a flagship hackathon dubbed “Cyberthon” where winners will walk away with over N1,000,000 and other gifts for their participation in the hacking competition to be supervised by Digital Encode Limited.
Nollywood ace actress and business tycoon, Mimi Orjiekwe will be presenting prizes to the winners.
