Beyond finance, the application of blockchain technology and its potentials across various sectors are becoming clearer today. Although blockchain application in the financial services sector is still at its nascent stage after over 10 years of Bitcoin, how the technology can address the problem of trust in other sectors has also become increasingly topical. The sustainability industry where the level of impact is as good as the level of trust is also now exploring blockchain technology for environmental impact.
Powered by GCS FIBERS, owners of AshToken, in partnership with BlockAdop, ‘Green Discovery: Blockchain Impact in the Sustainability Industry‘ is an event that focuses on blockchain solutions for environmental challenges.
Venue, Date, and Time
The event comes up Friday 2nd June 2023 at the Civic Center, Victoria Island, Lagos, 5PM (WAT).
Up to five Nigeria businesses that are already providing solutions to environmental or climate change issues will be pitching their solutions at the event. The best pitch goes home with 1000 USDT.
Also, Blokadop would be presenting awards to few persons in the space for their contributions towards blockchain adoption in Africa.
