Last week saw the Blockchain Developers Summit in Nigeria that enjoyed over 1,500 attendees made up of developers, entrepreneurs, startups and tech enthusiasts. Also in attendance were a delegation from Nigeria’s Economic Ministry – Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta (National Director, National Center for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics) (NCAIR) and Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi (Director-General of the National Information Technology Development Agency) (NITDA).
An international delegation that represented the BSV Blockchain included Dr. Maximilian Sinan Korkmaz, Founder of My2Cents, Michał Scisłowski, CEO and Founder of Soundoshi, and Lorien Gamaroff, Co-Founder & CEO of Centbee.
Most notably both My2Cents and Centbee saw a strong uptake in traffic and downloads on the evening of the event. In the case of My2Cents the traffic increases have continued at an astonishing rate with a large proportion of that traffic coming from Nigeria.
How My2Cents works: Users pay a fraction of a cent to post and then other users pay similarly small amounts to like, comment and re-purpose the content. The BSV chain as a whole is processing over 1,000,000 transactions daily: https://bsvdata.com/applications
