On launch day, the Co-Founder of GIGx, Osamede Arhunmwunde, described the adoption of blockchain technology as the opportunity of our generation. The goal of GIGX as Africa’s first decentralised marketplace is to onboard the next million users across Nigeria.

Other guests included:

  • Chimezie Chuta – Founder of Blockchain Nigeria User Group (BNUG)
  • Ehis Omozusi – The regional marketing & business lead, Conflux Network
  • Obasi Francis – CEO & Co-founder of Cassava Network & former CEO at Lead Wallet
  • Gaius Chibueze – CEO of ABiT Network

During the panel discussion, Mr. Chuta depicted the lack of trust and transparency as the main bottlenecks to Africa’s development, and that blockchain’s nature (transparent, immutable, verifiable, secure & decentralised) could be the key to solving this problem.

On the other hand, Mr. Ehis emphasized the enormous growth potential of the African crypto sector and that this line of work is not limited to developers.

During his intervention, Mr. Francis stressed that the crypto space in Africa boasts an excellent development environment as it is already self-regulating.

The Hydra Developer Bootcamp comes with a $7, 000 Bounty, and POAPs are available for those who attend the bootcamp from Week 2 to Week 4.
