The African crypto industry has seen increasing growth over the years and this is very much reflected in the active local and foreign presence of crypto firms on the continent. With emphasis in Nigeria being one of the largest markets on the continent, the growth in general awareness has been on a steady uptrend.
The media plays a unique role in the growth of new technologies and the blockchain and crypto industry is no exception. From the earliest blogs, podcasts, instructional videos to more sophisticated reporting today, the global awareness of the digital revolution owes many thanks to the media industry.
Africa, which holds great promise in terms of the applications of the blockchain technology, over the years, crypto media firms have sprang up each offering services all aimed at the growth of the technology.
Despite the great benefits which the technology offers, even with the impressive bull run of 2017, the crypto media sub-sector in Africa is still filled with multiple challenges. However, for entrepreneurs and savvy minds, where challenges abound, greater opportunities also abound.
Despite these obvious challenges, CryptoTVPlus continues to push on and this is reflected in the various milestones it has acheived two years since its inception.
The Journey so Far
Since inception, CryptoTVPlus has striven to remain true to its nature, to be a leading Media firm in Africa bringing timeless resources to the continent at large. Operating from Lagos, Nigeria, CryptoTVPlus has been able to achieve impressive and unimaginable successes over the two years of its existence.
Below are some of these achievements:
The Launch of CryptoTVPlus News Website
At inception, one of the first things the organization did was the setting up and launch of the Cryptotvplus.com website which contains various publications on the crypto industry.
As a leading crypto media firm in Africa, the CryptoTVPlus website reports on news and happenings of the industry from around the world with a major emphasis on the Africa continent.
The CryptoTVPlus culture believes in pushing forth the African agenda. The culture at CryptoTVPlus believes in telling the stories of Africans by Africans.
The Launch of CryptoRadio24
In an effort to spread the awareness of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology across Africa, CryptoTVPlus launched the CryptoRadio24 to achieve this.
CryptoRadio24 is an online radio platform that has become one of the largest most trusted knowledge sharing platforms on blockchain and cryptocurrencies. CryptoRadio24 gives voices to African crypto entrepreneurs, helping them to speak to thousands listening across the continent.
Since its launch, CryptoRadio24 has allowed several Africans, and non-Africans, to share their thoughts on important industry matters across the continent and the world.
The Launch of News Update
With a view to simplifying news reporting and grabbing the attention, CryptoTVPlus also launched the News Update service which renders news and happenings in the crypto industry both locally and internationally within a short time frame.
The News Update segment was designed to enable crypto, and especially non-crypto audiences, easily and quickly understand the reporting. CryptoTVPlus News Update has seen a lot of positive response since launch.
The Launch of Campus BCAT
Mass adoption remains an important topic in the heart of true crypto entrepreneurs, and at CryptoTVPlus, this is a key focus. Owing to the need to continue pushing for global mass adoption amongst the younger generations, CryptoTVPlus launched the Campus BCAT movement.
The Campus BCAT initiative is an educational and awareness campaign targeted at Nigerian tertiary institutions. Through Campus Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Awareness Tour (Campus BCAT), thousands of students across several universities came to know about crypto, creating a career path amongst others.
Campus BCAT became one of the largest crypto themed events ever in Africa in 2019 with event sponsors gaining massive exposure and interactions with the younger generation.
With its vision to push forth the African agenda, CryptoTVPlus has also launched the BUIDL AFRICA initiative which celebrates and honors the efforts, contributions, developments, and achievements of Africans pushing and making blockchain solutions on the continent.
BUIDL AFRICA envisions an Africa where the tireless efforts and achievements are adequately acknowledged and given the due recognition they desire. Since inception, various Africans doing exemplary works have been nominated and given the due recognition they desire.
Tony Emeka, CEO of CryptoTVPlus, speaking on the second Anniversary, said:
“Technology plays a significant role in our lives today. Our everyday activities have so much dependence on technology unlike any other time in history. The crypto industry is a growing industry with positive projections in the near future.
Many people still don’t understand how blockchain technology works, how it can help make life better and easier, what people can do with it to help solve societal problems, and what’s already made. As a media firm, we owe the responsibility of reporting these activities, correctly telling our own stories in our own ways. At CryptoTVPlus, we are just getting started. More is to come.”
CryptoTVPlus is celebrating two years and hopes to continue making more outstanding achievements in the space in the coming years.
