“What is Bitcoin?” Claims one of the top Spot in Google’s 2018 Search Trends

Published

on

The last quarter of 2018 has left investors wondering about the state of Bitcoin. While the question of the cause behind the rise and fall of Bitcoin seemed to mesmerize some, others were asking a fundamental question. According to Google trends, one of the most searched definition in the U.S. and U.K. in 2018 is the question: ‘What is Bitcoin?’

In 2017, Bitcoin was one of the most popular search terms in the world. In 2018, however, according to Google’s annual in Search query statistics for this year, people are still curious about bitcoin. While this year marked Bitcoin’s 10th year anniversary, the digital currency has lost almost 80 per cent of the gains it made last year. Although the price remained high in January 2018, it suffered a gradual decline as the year went on. Right now, One bitcoin is worth around $3,400. However despite the losses Bitcoin still tops the Google search charts.

Asides Google, Apple also released its 2018 top app store applications and Cash App, a Bitcoin-based App was ranked as the 17th most popular free iPhone application. Many cryptocurrency applications are holding the top and trending position on the Google Play store.   

So, even though cryptocurrency markets have suffered some considerable loss of value, Bitcoin still retains the spot for one of the most popular searches on Google in 2018. However, Bitcoin is not the only cryptocurrency gaining the attention of Google users as ‘How to buy Ripple’ was the fourth most-asked how to question the  Google Trend data showed. Ripple (XRP) is another form of cryptocurrency that seems to be gaining popularity. From the look of things cryptocurrency still holds the attention of the people.

Promoting the Adoption and Use of Dash in Nigeria

Lagos hosted a community of Dash users on the 1st of March, 2019. The conference, which took place at the CIBN Learning Centre, Yaba, was graced by notable personalities like Franklin Peters, CEO of BitFxt; Michael Ogunseye, CEO of Dash Cart; Tega Abikure, CEO of KurePay; Munachi Ogueke, Chief Business Officer of YellowCard amongst others.

As portrayed by the theme of the conference — “Promoting the Adoption and Use of Dash in Nigeria”, the conference was a one-day event aimed at addressing the adoption of Dash as a cryptocurrency in Nigeria. The contributions by key speakers at the event proved that Dash, beyond all doubt, is massively being adopted in Nigeria.

Nathaniel Luz, Lead, Dash Nigeria Business Dev, kick-started the round of presentations with an eye-opener speech. He delved into very important details about the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies — it’s borderless transactions, financial privacy and more.

He talked about Bitcoin, and why Bitcoin may not be a solution to the massive adoption of cryptocurrency all over the world. With these, he introduced Dash, explored the details of Dash, and talked about its adoption which he tagged “Oya Over to Adoption 1,2,3…”

Nathaniel was pleased to inform the audience about the integration of Dash into many online Nigerian platforms. It is a big move towards adoption.

Here’s a list of some giant steps that Dash has made in its quest for massive adoption in Nigeria, so far.

Integration of Dash into the Kurepay Wallet

Buying airtime, data on any network just got better. With the latest adoption and integration of Dash into the Kurepay Application, you can now recharge your phone, and/or renew your data with Dash. Moreover, you can also renew your DSTV subscription packages with Dash. Thanks to Kurepay.

Kurepay also facilitates remittances across Africa.

Esusu Africa

Esusu is a platform aimed at improving financial inclusion in Nigeria by digitizing thrift contribution. With a vision to become  the leading Digital Microfinance in Africa, the platform has also adopted the use of Dash, for deposits and withdrawals.

Yellow Card

With outlets in various locations in Lagos, Yellowcard is a firm that allows you to purchase cryptocurrency vouchers. Want to buy Dash? Find your way to any Yellowcard outlet closer to you and exchange your cash for some Dash.

Gigalayer

Gigalayer is an online Web hosting services provider as well as a domain provider. They have strong roots in many African countries like Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa, Kenya, and so on. GigaLayer integrated Dash as a means of payment on their platform. This means that you can now get all the web services you desire using Dash.



Dash has proven itself beyond any level of doubt that it is here to redefine the way we perceive cryptocurrencies. Infact, Bitfxt (an exchange for swapping cryptocurrencies with other cryptocurrencies  or Fiat) will be listing Dash against NANO, Bitcoin and BXT soonest.

What are you waiting for! It is high time you got a Dash wallet and a reasonable amount of Dash. In 2010, a person sold 10,000 bitcoins, approximately $41, for just 2 boxes of Pizza. Do you know how much a Bitcoin costs today?

If that can be the testimony of Bitcoin, how much more Dash, which has a better sustainability plan, awesome features (InstantSend, PrivateSend, low transaction fees, decentralized voting), and scalability. All these make Dash a better choice compared to Bitcoin and some other cryptocurrencies.

Dash will also soon be listed on Coinbarter, Busha and Bitmama.

Little wonder Dash is gaining so much recognition within a short period of time.  “How do I get Dash?” You ask

How to Get Dash

  • Purchase Dash via any of the options listed above and move Dash into your wallet so you can be in control of your own money


You can also download the “Discover Dash app to see where you can spend Dash near you. Visit Dashnews to stay up to date on the latest dash development.

SiBAN, Nigeria’s Blockchain Association, prepares to launch KYC/AML campaigns

Published

on

Following the resolution of the Caretaker Committee of Stakeholders in Blockchain Technology Association of Nigeria (SiBAN) at a recent meeting, the Vice Chairperson (Policy & Regulations) has released its subcommittee’s 3 Action Steps. The 3 Action Steps are as follows:

 

1. Introduction of SiBAN to Law Enforcement Agencies and Regulators:

Introduce SiBAN to law enforcement agencies such as EFCC and the Nigeria Police about the establishment and objectives of SiBAN towards forging a healthy and collaborative relationship with them, thus protecting our members against illegal arrests and victimization. SiBAN will also be formally introduced to regulators such as CBN, SEC, and NDIC;

 

2. Introduction of ‘Register Your Business’ Campaign:

A number of platforms in the Blockchain and cryptocurrency space in the country are either not registered at all or not registered in Nigeria. To boost credibility in the space and reduce the rate at which scammers are appearing and disappearing in the space, we will campaign that Nigerian business in the space must register their businesses and also publish their RC numbers or BN numbers on their websites and publications as the case may be. Foreign firms that operate in Nigeria will be encouraged to also register in Nigeria;

 

3. Introduction of KYC/AML Campaign:

Advocate, prepare, and propose policies for Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance for adoption by registered members of SiBAN who own or operate Blockchain and cryptocurrency businesses in Nigeria as minimum requirement towards improving consumer protection, boosting security, and supporting laws, public policies, and regulations. We will design a KYC/AML icon or emblem that platforms who adopt our KYC/AML policies or similar policies will have the right to place on their platforms.

 

In the words of Senator Ihenyen, the Vice Chairman (Policy & Regulations), “At policy and regulations level, we are very concerned about the need to boost the credibility of Blockchain and cryptocurrency platforms operating in the space. This will help improve consumer protection and investor confidence. As a body of stakeholders, our approach is a self-regulatory approach which we hope we help us sanize the space while also exploring collaborations with regulators. We believe that Blockchain and cryptocurrency present massive opportunity for economic growth. But we can’t make that happen if we fail to leverage on the technology at this nascent stage.”

 

The 3 Action Steps have been adopted by SiBAN and the Committee on Policy and Regulations are currently working on implementation.

 

Last month, SiBAN’s Committee on Projects had made an inquiry into the operations of two cryptocurrency platforms in the country and made interventions that raised hope that the Nigerian Blockchain and cryptocurrency space can be safer, better, and bigger.
