Unlocking Africa’s Potential: Exploring Blockchain, AI, and Emerging Technologies at the Digital Nigeria International Conference 2023

Can Nigeria harness digital technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) to create jobs, enhance inclusive economic growth, and promote sustainability?

The three-day event starts on October 24 at the International Conference Center in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja. Organized by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) in partnership with Domineum Blockchain Solutions and others, the conference will bring together industry leaders, founders, and innovators in blockchain, AI, the Internet of Things (IoT), the metaverse, and other emerging technologies to chart a way forward for Nigeria.

The first day will focus on blockchain and AI, the two intertwined emerging technologies that have received the most buzz in recent years. Can Nigeria, and Africa at large, leverage AI to solve some of its most pressing challenges? Will the region’s rapid adoption of blockchain give it an edge in the AI era? This and more questions will be addressed by some of the leading minds in these sectors.

Among the speakers will be Lorien Gamaroff, the CEO and co-founder of Bitcoin wallet Centbee. Based in Johannesburg, Centbee is a regional leader whose innovative approach has seen thousands in its native South Africa and beyond able to make day-to-day payments through BSV blockchain.

Other speakers will include Jimmy Nguyen, the CEO of Blockchain for All; Lise Li, the head of the BSV Blockchain Hub in China; VX Technologies’ Catherine Lephoto; nChain’s Simit Naik; and Derek Hogenkamp, the chairman of Yalla Ltd.
