“You have to be known for what you do.” These were the words of Obiajulu Onyema during the second panel at the recently concluded Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Awareness Tour (BCAT) event in Enugu, Nigeria.
The panel was anchored by Investor Nnkay, the founder and CEO of The Palm Academy, a platform dedicated to teaching digital skills. This session featured other notable personalities such as Obiajulu Onyema (fondly called Ajulu), the founder of Superday; Franklin Peters, CEO of Boundless Nexus Limited; Someh Crypto, a Nigerian Crypto Influencer and Nnamdi Ubah, CEO of House Africa.
The anchor kicked off the session with questions directed at Mr Onyema. Speaking on the foundational principles of an online brand, Mr Onyema noted that an individual running a brand must read, write, think, ask questions, and document as these are pivots for a brand’s success. He added that as one reads, one should also create and document.
Someh Crypto, a crypto trader, whose stock-in-trade is onboarding beginners into crypto, talked about crypto adoption and how slow it was in the past. While sharing her experience on starting, she noted that looking past the financial gains the space offers boosted her commitment. Furthermore, she emphasized the need for more ladies to embrace blockchain and cryptocurrency.
The session continued with more questions, with the Boundless Nexus CEO, Mr Peters, sharing his opinion on the advantages of having a personal brand. According to him, what is not heard or seen cannot be accounted for. He urged brands to make themselves visible and be loud about what they offer.
Mr Nnamdi Ubah, the House Africa CEO who answered the question on the importance of blockchain, noted that blockchain allows for transparency, which inspired the idea behind House Africa. The firm allows users to digitize real estate transactions to track a property’s status and acquire digital deeds.
The session closed with a question from a member of the audience, who asked how one can begin one’s journey in crypto and blockchain with little or no capital. Answering the question, Ajulu noted that one could offer in-demand skills in the crypto space. On his part, Mr Franklin mentioned that airdrop could be a good start, citing examples of people who have made a fortune from airdrops.
The BCAT Africa event was well-attended by over 7000 people. Powered by CryptoTvplus & Earnathon and sponsored by Binance and a host of other industry leaders, the event was directed at educating Nigerians on the potential opportunities available in the blockchain and cryptocurrency sector.
