A two-day event bringing together hundreds of bitcoin and blockchain advocates in Nigeria and across Africa. CoinFest is a global cryptocurrency conference that is held simultaneously in the same week across different cities around the world to celebrate cryptocurrency.
CoinFest Nigeria 2019 is scheduled to be held on the 4th of April 2019 to the 5th of April 2019 and will be taking place in the city of Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
The CoinFest initiative was started in 2013 by some bitcoin enthusiasts in Vancouver, Canada, who saw the need to educate the growing numbers coming into the space as well as promote the adoption of cryptocurrency all around the globe.
Interestingly, Nigeria is one of the few African countries that are witnessing an increased interest in the area of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
With the growing numbers of investors, traders, developers, and entrepreneurs, CoinFest Nigeria has positioned itself as a platform that connects these people in ensuring that the potentials and opportunities in crypto and blockchain is being leveraged upon.
CoinFest was brought to Nigeria by Kayode Babarinde, an Associate Fellow of the Cryptographic Development Initiative of Nigeria (CDIN), with the aim of laying the path towards a Decentralized Nigeria.
2019 edition is set to be even bigger, as the conference is set to hold for 2-days, unlike the previous ones which held for only one day. There are not many conferences in Nigeria that focus more on cryptocurrency education; CoinFest Nigeria is one of those events you don’t want to miss at all.
Headline speakers who will be speaking at the event are; Professor Nii Quaynor, Director at Blockchain Academy, Ghana Dot Com Limited; Dr. Jane Thomason, Founder, Blockchain Quantum Impact; Oliver La Rosa, CEO, Globiance, and Chairman, European Chamber of Commerce for Distributed Ledger Technology and Crypto Currencies; Ernest Mbenkum, Founder of Cameroon Blockchain Business Council, and Founder of OASIS Africa Innovation; and Armand Ngueti, African Lead, Government Blockchain Association.
The event is packed with educative talks on crypto and blockchain, insightful panel discussions, product pitch, informative sessions, networking opportunities, and blockchain and cryptocurrency exhibitions, amongst other wide range of activities.
