Next Phase of the Crypto Industry Will Be Driven by Real world Use & User Experience – Nathaniel Luz. 

Published

on

Crypto enthusiasts, Author and Dash Lead, Nigeria, Nathaniel Luz says the next phase of the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry will be driven by real world use and user experience. The phase according to him is between 2021 – 2030.

He said this in the thirteenth session of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Awareness Tour – BCAT2020 which was held Live on the 13th of October, 2020 at the CryptoTVPlus Studio. The session had a focus topic “Crypto Industry Trends: How to get Positioned for maximum benefits”

According to him, the previous years in the industry is really just a one big phase and we’re still in the early adopters stage. However, this one big stage or phase had micro stages like the ideology stage which was pre-ICO era. Then the ICO boom, STO, IEO and now the DeFi era.

When asked by the Host, Marvelous Akpere how he took advantage of the ICO era, Mr. Nathaniel also said he didn’t actually take advantage of the ICO boom. ‘I only got into one or two ICOs and it wasn’t necessarily about the ROI’. He was just focused mainly on Dash.

Mr. Nathaniel said It’s not about taking advantage of the ICO era, it’s about taking advantage of the entire cryptocurrency industry. He predicted that in the coming years, more and more corporations will be launching their own cryptocurrency.

Explaining why the next phase will be driven by real world use and user experience, he said the crypto industry was founded by cryptographers, computer scientists, nerds etc and these crypto products are quite difficult for non-techies to use. This is consistent with other contributions over the years by crypto faithfuls on the usability of crypto products. The following decade will be populated by crypto products with defining user experience.

On how to exploit the (coming) trends in the crypto industry, Nathaniel Luz responded saying, firstly, one has to understand the phase that the industry is heading to (real world use & user experience 2021-2030), secondly it’s indisputable that cryptocurrency is here to stay. With that in mind, the third thing to do for anyone that desires to take advantage of crypto trends is to align what they do in such a way that they can be part of the (crypto) movement.

Franklin Peters: SARS Abducted, Robbed Me & Left me stranded in an Unknown Place

Published

on

Franklin Peters the CEO of Bitfxt Technologies has come out to share his experience with the dreaded unit of the Nigerian Police Force -Special Anti-Robbery Squad – SARS.

In the weekly crypto comic show from CryptoTvplus – #CryptoRoast – which holds every Friday by 9PM (GMT +1), he came as a guest to express his dissatisfaction and position on the SARS unit. There has been outcry across the country for over 72 hours with millions of Nigerians majority of whom are youth coming out to protest against the brutality of the police force.

Mr. Franklin Peters shared his experience below:

“Sometime in 2019, I travelled from Portharcourt to Lagos for a Business meeting. I lodged in FESTAC but had my meeting at IKEJA CITY MALL so I booked a TAXIFY. Barely two poles away from my hotel, some FRAIL looking men in MUFTY pulled us over, discharged the CAB guy and directed me to a small old DAMFO bus with no plate number…

I kept asking them what I had done but they insisted I should enter their bus first. I refused to enter until they all identified themselves as SARS through their ID card. They said I should settle them or else they’ll take me to their station and they will make sure I don’t come out for 1 week.

Every effort to get them to be reasonable was abortive. They asked what I do and I told them I run a blockchain tech company… they said, how can “a young boy like you” own a company? They took my phone and started checking my WhatsApp messages, going through my email and checking my bank balance until my phone battery died.

To cut the story short: they drove me to an unknown destination, followed me to an ATM, made me withdraw all the money in my bank and abandoned me there with a dead phone and no cash. I was properly dressed and so it wasn’t a case of being addressed the way you are dressed.

I complained to the nearby police and they confirmed they were SARS and that’s how they make their money in that zone. I thank God I they didn’t hurt me, it was only money they took… it could have been worse!”

Mr. Franklin Peters further advised Nigerians to “Speak out! The #EndSarsProtests is for everyone. If it hasn’t happened to you now, it may happen later or happen to someone dare to you. Let’s correct this menace now before it’s too late! #EndSARS”
