overview

Blockchain truly is a revolutionary mechanism to bring everyone to the highest degree of accountability. Above anything else, the most critical application of Blockchain technology is to guarantee the validity of a transaction by recording it on a distributed system of registers, all of which are interconnected through a secure time-stamped mechanism. In today's digital information age, Blockchain represents a critical intersection between the financial world, social networking, and powerful decentralized networks. Stakeholders must formulate careful legal and business strategies that factor in the technology and infrastructure, as well as the corresponding market appetite and regulatory structures in rapidly evolving global markets.


This Blockchain Technology Conference to be held on October 26, 2018 in Lagos aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of Blockchain technology by focusing on how to address the implementation challenges, make best use of the opportunities and benefit from the innovation and disruption that this technology brings along.

In a world where Immutability of digital ledger became a very attractive word, the birth of the Blockchain was recorded. But as the ecosystem of Blockchain evolved and several use cases emerged, industry experts have been faced with a complex and disturbingly controversial spectrum of issues and dependencies. Currently passed the Technology Trigger phase of the hype cycle, blockchains are now positioned somewhere after the Peak of Inflated Expectations. Many vendors and user companies like IBM, Microsoft and others are conducting their own demonstration tests to uncover the technology’s challenges, working independently to improve it and to enable its practical application. In my presentation, I will be discussing on the principal challenges associated with blockchain from the dimension of lack of awareness of the technology, its cultural implication, cost and efficiency,technological design, regulation and governance, security and privacy and much more. - Echa Emmanuel, Certified Blockchain Expert, Blockchain Council

When you hear about ICOs on the media, you might think of them as an opportunity to invest with high returns, it is very important to note that just like any other investment you need to know all about it from A to Z before putting your money into it. ICOs are simply a new form of fundraising, the team comes up with ideas that claim to be useful, but they require financial support to start or continue development or building. Investing in ICOs is tricky,and it can go either way, a valuable ICO is a win-win for both the investors and the team. - Emmanuel Adams, ICO Expert, ICOKite
The rising need for the use of Blockchain technology to revolutionize identity verification has hit its zenith; in the light of its reputability for making possible the tremendous shift to the simplification of large and complex systems of multiple verifications, and the required transparency across board. A day in the life of an average human being involves the need to provide some form of identification to prove that they are who they claim to be, and, or possess something they claim to have ownership of. This is usually verified by biometrics identification (fingerprints, facial print, selfie, eye-scan), background information, educational background, financial details, proof of residence, proof of ownership of properties, proof of association, etc. Anyone would expect that by now, we would have a platform where every identity information is integrated, handy for when it is required by any service provider. By just providing an ID Number, an end user’s credentials can be queried by the ID Customer. These include embassies, foreign Institutions, foreign Investors, credit Companies, corporations, background check companies, etc. But, we are far from this scenario in Africa. Nigeria provides an example of the challenges of fragmentation of information possessed by an individual. Even as over 67 million people were registered and issued voter cards in the run-up to its recent elections, as of February 2015, only 6 million have been enrolled in the country’s national e-ID program. The fragmentation of IDs and associated multiple registrations is not just an inconvenience for citizens, but also a waste of public resources. This is a case of duplication of efforts as almost the same set of data about an individual is required by various service providers, from biometrics to background information; educational background to financial details, proof of residence to proof of ownership of properties and so much more. - Abiodun Ayorinde, Co-Founder & Chief Errand Officer (CEO), LIFTIX LLC
