Nigeria’s First-Ever EOS Blockchain Meet-up Happening Live In Lagos.

Published

on

EOS is a blockchain operating system that is designed to be very flexible, to accommodate millions of transactions per second and to be very user-friendly. On April 21st, 2018, at 10:00 pm W.A.T, the first-ever EOS Meet-up will take place at 19A, Ogundana Street, Off Allen Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria.

It will bring about the dawn of a new era where programmers will have more incentive to build decentralized applications because it would be easier to do so given that the EOS software would provide a backbone that is fortified with a vibrant community, and a constitution and good governance structure. The EOS software would be free to use, unlike Ethereum which costs gas. All that is required to build on the network is a stake which would grant them access to the network. If you own 1% of the network, you have access to 1% of the computational power, 1% of the bandwidth, and 1% of the network storage. EOS would be super fast given the horizontal parallel scalability feature.

This is the third project that is being spearheaded by Dan Larimer. Dan Larimer, is the visionary creator of Bitshares and Steem who has earned the reputation of creating decentralized applications that are actually scalable and usable. Steem and Bitshares alone already perform more transactions per second than Ethereum and Bitcoin (check blocktivity.info to confirm this claim).

Dan has gotten wisdom and experience from creating Steem and Bitshares, now he is building EOS to be better and bigger than his two previous projects. EOS will be a general multipurpose platform for creating decentralized applications like Steem and Bitshares.

The EOS blockchain would be launched on the 1st of June and right now the third version of the EOS test net Dawn 3.0 is live. The EOS token distribution (ICO) has been going on for eleven months now. It will end on June 1st and then contributors would have their EOS ERC-20 tokens swapped for the precious EOS tokens. EOS uses the Dutch Auction method and investors place a bid for 2,000,000 EOS tokens distributed daily. The token distribution was designed to last for a year to ensure a fairer ICO where everyone gets a chance to participate and to prevent a situation where the whales just come and scoop up most of the tokens in a bid to dumb them on later investors.

The EOS tokens give bandwidth access to EOS holders to participate in the network and to vote for block producers and it is also the key to enjoy some delicious airdrops from DAP such as EOS DAC, Everypedia, EOSvibes, e.t.c.

The EOS meet-up is organized by Tojukaka who is very passionate about cryptocurrency and Blockchain technology! He is a cryptocurrency trader, investor, and EOS Nation Ambassador. He is supported by an awesome team of EOS enthusiast in Nigeria. He believes and lives to see a day when poverty and fear are eliminated from the world through education.

It is supported by block producer candidates: EOS cafe and EOS Nation and a vibrate team of EOS enthusiast here in Nigeria. It is rumoured that they are building an EOS sponsored facility that will enable them train the youths to be blockchain developers.

Block producers in the EOS Ecosystem are the equivalent of miners in Bitcoin. Just like miners, they validate transactions and secure the network. Unlike Bitcoin, however, EOS uses a Delegated Proof of Stake(DPOS) Consensus Algorithm where block producers which are elected by the community (through staked weighted voting), take turns to produce blocks every 0.5 seconds.

Sisibox -Nigeria's first Sanitary Product powered by the Blockchain

Sanitary pads which is supposed to be readily available and affordable to every girl or young woman in Africa is not. Though we have some sanitary pad brands in the market, it’s just that many of these girls and women can’t afford to buy and use them for their monthly menstrual circle. In order to get these pads, these young women find themselves in despicable situations where they are forced to have sex with the chemist or shop keepers who sells these items. They are also exposed to having sex with any available male in exchange for sanitary pad. So sad that girls have to sell their dignity just to get a paltry sum of money to care for their monthly period.

It is also not new as research shows that many girls especially in public secondary schools miss class during their menstrual period. They do this as a result of the fear of being shamed by boys and girls alike for the blood stains that reflects at the back of their skirts. Not only that, some of these girls, if at all they try to come, end up using unhygienic materials like dirty clothes or tissue papers. And while they are away from school they miss out on academic lessons which affect their overall academic performance and deny them of better future prospects.

A look at our female prisons wards, tales of woes, agony and pains as another worrisome situation is brewing there. In the prisons, we have a situation where about five female inmates have to share one sanitary pad. Thus exposing them to all manners of highly contagious disease and infection.

Some of these girls and women when interviewed say, “we can’t afford to eat three square meals how much more buy a sanitary pad.”

In putting an end to this problem which have skipped the eyes of many, BEEP Foundation, a concerned non-governmental organization launches SISI POWER, a campaign to empower indigent women and girls with 1 million Dollars and 150 million sanitary pads across Africa, though starting from Nigeria.

This cash will be given as business grants to indigent women, after proper training. Also, they shall be mentored by successful business women and the foundation to ensure they make better use of the grants given to them.

For girls, they shall have access to free monthly sanitary pad and access to Blockchain Technology, ICT and life skills training which makes it possible for them not to sell themselves short just for sanitary pads. They will be trained in the following areas; Coding, Mobile App Development, Animation, Digital Marketing, Graphic Designs and other relevant courses that ensure for their self-sustenance, productivity.

With this innovative gesture, BEEP Foundation through the launch of Sisi Power has placed itself at the forefront of poverty eradication, entrepreneurial empowerment of Girls and Women in Africa.

The narrative has to change , Sisipower is committed to positioning the African sisi and equipping HER with one of the most trending innovative skills and technology, which is blockchain. SisiPower leads the way in its application of blockchain technology by enabling acceptance of donations in BMCTokens and made provision for acceptance of a smart contract shared Master-Node Equity reward on the blockchain to support and sustain the vision and mission of sisipower.

Sisi Power is an initiative of Beep Foundation, a foundation geared at providing empowerment and innovative development in Africa.

Bloqbox: How Blockchain Technology will Revolutionize Intellectual Property

Interestingly, data ownership is not much of a big topic in Nigeria and most African economies. Yet still, because of future concerns, it is best we talked about data privacy and ownership in western Africa.

Bloqbox’s Robin8 Profile Utility Token (PUT) is a cryptocurrency in a digital ecosystem supporting a new wave of social media and eCommerce where we empower everyone with their own data and digital assets on the blockchain.

It’s a project which provides and gives back control of the user’s profile data and digital assets so you seemingly have exclusive access to to your own data.

Interestingly, data ownership is not much of a big topic in Nigeria and most African economies. Yet still, because of future concerns, it is best we talked about data privacy and ownership in western Africa.

In this digital age, digital data itself has fully taken hold of everything we do as consumers and judging from the angle of social media, the users, unfortunately, wield little or no power over their data.

The Data market is a very valuable market and its protection could not be overemphasized.

Third-parties (Facebook, Google, Linkedin, Amazon & more) make hundreds of billions of dollars every year, yet we rarely see any of this money reach out pockets. It’s about time that value was redistributed to the rightful owners you and I.

So with Bloqbox, no unlicensed sale of the data is permitted and this is achieved using the append-only public record and only releases with confirmed access via the Password key

What is Microfinance Doing in Blockchain?

With a record of 139 million clients and a credit weight of over $110 billion only as at 2017, It remains clear that microfinance has solidified its place among the leading teams driving financial inclusion of the marginalized populations. It is interesting to note that blockchain integration for the financial institution does not exclude the microfinance sector.

On a global scale, the microfinance market has witnessed steady growth and this growth is such to last for about two decades from 2017-2025. more of the reason for this promised growth is due to the rise in the number of SMEs. It is certain that developing markets will drive massive expansion, and this trend will continue for as long as possible until the annual growth for this group is 5% and above.

Interestingly, blockchain is painstakingly making its way to different communities and is seeking to engage approximately 1.7 billion people who are currently unbanked and are in the production sector of the economy. Microfinance is currently doing this by making funds available to the SMEs.

Currently, AssestStream is a microfinance project built on the blockchain and it caters for the creation of trust between the lenders and the borrowers alike.

AssetStream Token is bound to be Mainstream

Microfinance, as a major player in the financial industry, takes pride in playing an active role in the global movement against poverty. AssetStream taps into an attractive and really underserved market opportunity and intersects with their specialized expertise by simply maximizing social and financial performance and helping to keep alive the focus on low-income clients which it was created to serve.

Plans are in place to extent AssetStream’s hand of fellowship to others outside lenders and borrowers- to include agencies which are open to partnering up with it.
Its proposed source of generating funds will be from its AST Token.

Moreso, AssestStream hopes to stabilize its AST tokens within the AssetStream ecosystem as a U.S stable coin valued at 0.01 USD. This is aimed at promoting stability. Likewise, on external platforms, AST prices will be subject to fair market value reflected on third-party exchanges.

Loan Contracts

The platform hopes to create its own rating criteria and this will be categorized into personal and business loans.
It provides for learners to skim through the platform and manually select loan contracts they would be comfortable with, or opt for automatic through AssetStream autonomous matching system.

AssetStream Competition

The competition here is such that investors can expect small businesses to operate in a way and structure that maximizes the achievement of both financial and social returns. These help in the alleviation of poverty and increase the economic opportunities for the poor.

Quite obviously microfinance places a supportive role in the fight against poverty and on the journey to an improved Standard of living, there is a healthy competition that needs to be welcomed in areas like health, education, infrastructure, market access, and a functioning and responsive government.
Blockchain in microfinance can facilitate this- leading to the betterment of lives from all around the world.

What’s On the Horizon

Small scale producers who are poorly equipped with the best tools for their businesses will record a minimum of 10% increase in their output but interestingly, this is guaranteed with access to our provisions and helping them secure these tools, would suffice as our little contribution.

Highlights

Max Property Group (MPG) an international property investment company, very recently signed an MOU with AssetStream. Max Crowdfund is a subsidiary of the mother company and a crowdfunding platform that synergizes with AssetStream to provide numerous communities with them to support the integration of their blockchain platforms.

Having onboard English Forward- an English platform with 250+ million members via an MOU with AssetStream now makes available microfinance resources for its teachers and learners community.

In conclusion, AssetStream updated her community that her beta platform is live and ready. the platform is built on the blockchain and all transactions are carried out on the blockchain.
