In recent years, Nigerian authorities have shown their opposition to blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies, etc. But that hasn’t stopped Nigerians from taking advantage of the solutions offered by this technology. Faced with the mass adoption that the country is experiencing, the authorities seem to have decided to change their minds.
Accelerate the adoption of blockchain technology
In Nigeria, the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) is entering the blockchain. In partnership with Domineum, a British blockchain solution provider, has launches a program to train 30,000 Nigerians in blockchain technology. The goal of the government agency is, on the one hand, to accelerate the adoption of this technology in the country. On the other hand, it is about making Nigeria a major player in the industry and producing solution providers within the fourth industrial revolution.
The information was given by the Director General of NITDA, Kashifu Inuwa and broadcast by Radio Nigeria. The latter encouraged his fellow citizens to take advantage of this opportunity offered by the government.
Mohammed Jega, co-founder of the blockchain solutions provider, said he was pleased with the announcement and touted its merits for Nigeria. He reaffirmed his entity’s commitment to produce “Quality education and to provide participants with the skills necessary to build true blockchain solutions (…) Blockchain is here to stay for a long time and we are rapidly moving away from traditional procedures for digital transformation procedures”.
Entries started on October 31st and should end on November 28th. The start of the lessons is scheduled for 1uh October, according to NITDA details. The program will be delivered in hybrid mode. That is to say that there will be virtual and physical encounters. This, in all 36 states of the federation.
According to our source, students who complete this training will have the opportunity to participate in an incubation program in London. Others will be exposed to the Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) ecosystem, where they will be able to participate in various development projects.

Far from dulling my enthusiasm, a fruitless investment in a cryptocurrency in 2017 only increased my enthusiasm. I therefore decided to study and understand the blockchain and its multiple uses and to transmit information relating to this ecosystem with my pen.
