At the upcoming #LagosBlockchain2021, attendees will discover how Blockchain, DeFi,
and NFTs together with, IoT, AI and Virtual Financial Assets are altering and disrupting incumbents and creating new opportunities for forward-thinking individuals, nations, and
organizations. We shall also be drawing attention to the concept of creator economy, digital
ownership & Intergenerational wealth creation using DeFi and NFTs.

One of Africa’s largest and most untapped markets is the creator economy. Using NFTs and
Crypto Arts, creators across art, film, gaming, sports, etc can monetize their followers and
intellectual property (i.e. ideas, copyright).

They can have royalties and revenue streams
across multiple assets. They can leverage their work to earn interest or borrow capital to
create even more value.

The conference has several tracks consisting of Panel discussions, Innovative tech product
exhibitions, NFT workshops, and Startup Investor Round-Table.

The event will be both virtual and physical and is being organized in partnership with the
Fintech Association of Nigeria and will be both virtual and physical.

Our previous conferences have attracted key figures like Prof Kingsley Muoghalu, Dr. Mrs.
Oby Ozekwesili, Dr. Andrew Nevin, Dr. Segun Aina and several eminent personalities
favorably disposed to the positive impact of Blockchain Technology in our polity.

This year’s conference sponsors include Tezos Foundation, Convexity, Quidax, Bantu
Blockchain, Audacity, Muna.Africa and Xend.Finance.
