On Saturday 2nd April 2022, the opening ceremony of the 2022 Hydra Developer Bootcamp was successfully held.

‘We strive to support the blockchain ecosystem and grow together with the community.’ – CEO, WhiteMatric
Chris, head of global expansions at Conflux Network, advocates for the transition towards Web3 and the mass adoption of blockchain technology. Topics such as DeFi, GameFi and the phenomenon of Africa boasting the biggest volume of Bitcoin remittance in the world are to be discussed in the future.
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.
