Africa has often been identified as a region in which blockchain can make the greatest impact, and the continent is already embracing the technology aggressively. Mohammed Ibrahim Jega is one of the people championing this adoption and in an interview with CoinGeek Backstage, he talked about how BSV blockchain is making a difference in Nigeria and beyond.
Speaking on the sidelines of LEAP 2022 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Jega revealed that the event saw a lot of people who were greatly interested in blockchain technology and how it can help them become more efficient and improve their operations.
As part of the BSV contingent at the event, Jega had interacted with several people, educating them on the power of BSV blockchain’s unbounded scaling, low fees and real-time transactions.
“We are here to answer these questions. We are happy to engage, interact and educate the community so that they can be able to do more on BSV,” he told CoinGeek’s Becky Liggero.
Jega was also part of a delegation from Nigeria that attended the event, led by Isa Ali Pantami, the country’s Minister of Communications and Digital Economy. This delegation is keen to understand “how blockchain can help them improve efficiency, bring transparency and also optimize services,” Jega told CoinGeek Backstage.
Jega is the founder of Domineum Blockchain Solutions, a leader in blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) solutions in Africa. It leverages the power of BSV blockchain in industries such as marine cargo tracking, land and property registry and credential management and verification. It has already partnered with one university in Nigeria to have the students’ credentials on the BSV blockchain for easier and more transparent verification.
Jega further pointed out that Nigeria, and Africa at large, is very enthusiastic about blockchain technology. However, for most, this revolves around digital asset trading, with Nigeria and Kenya being among the world’s top peer-to-peer trading states. Jega believes that it’s up to the BSV blockchain ecosystem to introduce this group of people, most of them young, to the transformative power blockchain has beyond trading and speculation.
