CryptoTVPlus, a top blockchain and cryptocurrency media house from Nigeria is set to commence its educative based Campus Blockchain & Cryptocurrency awareness Tour across major Nigerian universities starting from the 7th of September 2019 in University of Ibadan.
Campus BCAT is a university-wide education program aiming to teach and expose tertiary education students on the facts and misconception of blockchain and cryptocurrency. Over the years as the decentralized ledger technology continues to garner attention from different parts of the world and Nigeria becoming a hotbed for daily bitcoin trading and several other innovative solutions being developed, it has become clear that Africa can only achieve astronomical heights and not the usual catch up it has always played with any technology revolution through proper understanding of what blockchain and its varied applications presents through education.
The train is expected to start off from Nigeria’s premier university, the University of Ibadan (UI) on the 7th of September, after which it leaves for Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU). The train is expected to touch at least five universities in Nigeria scattered across the geopolitical zones of the country.
Tony Emeka, the Co-founder, and CEO of CryptoTVPlus says;
“There are always meetups, conferences and others about blockchain which is good, but the enduring effects emanating from these events haven’t really been felt. This is exactly our motivation behind the Campus BCAT initiative as we are well aware of the strategic roles youths and millennials play in the adoption of any new technology, social media is an example“
“With BCAT Clubs establishment at every one of the schools we touch, the underlying structure to help with the growth and awareness of the blockchain technology in Nigeria is put in place.” – Tony Emeka
With the publicity of the events already gathering steam, some of the interesting features to watch out for in Campus BCAT 2019 are;
Features of Campus BCAT 2019
- Opportunities for students to meet and connect with startups using Blockchain technology
- Showcasing partners products session
- Panel Session
- Exciting prizes in cryptocurrency to students
- Students learn about the digital currency evolution
- Talent Hunt Session
- Campus BCAT Club Establishment
Victor Ugochukwu, COO of CryptoTVPlus who is also in charge of the planning and smooth publicity of Campus BCAT 2019 speaking on the proposed event said;
“Africa is changing just like the rest of the world and I am particularly interested in seeing us play major roles at the center stage of disruptive technologies such as the blockchain. It is important that we adapt and reorganize our system to better fit into the more and effective knowledge-driven economies of the world. While we are educating our youths across campuses and giving them the opportunity to express their unique ideas around blockchain, we are also interested in making sure we remedy a deficiency in our system which is the lack of the availability of credible data. How many students in Nigeria are interested in blockchain? How many attended a blockchain/cryptocurrency event within the last quarter or even the previous years? How many have started building or even did their research project around blockchain technology? All these pertinent questions and more would be easily answered with the structure we would be establishing in these respective universities across Nigeria.”
With initiatives like Campus BCAT, perhaps university and tertiary students as a whole would be better positioned on how to make lasting impacts on their societies with the myriad opportunities the blockchain technology affords its enthusiasts.
