The craze about blockchain, which was originally built for bitcoin making it the first digital currency to solve the double-spending problem without the need of a trusted authority or central server is still very much with us, and in Nigeria too. Hence, there’s an event in Lagos.
If you’re interested in blockchain, then come on Saturday, April 21st for the Lagos Blockchain Hackathon. This is hosted in collaboration with the Government of Canada. All entrepreneurs, innovators, developers, and community members are very much invited to come learn about the cutting edge technology, Blockchain, and also develop solutions that’ll improve our society as a result.
One of the purposes of this event is to enable participants to gain educational knowledge on how to start working with Blockchain and have assistance in building prototypes. The aim is to build solutions which can be piloted with the Government of Canada’s initiative to trial Blockchain solutions. Blockchain can have a surely positive effect on our world, and this collaboration hopes to prove it in purely practical ways.
