The #LagosBlockDeFi2020 will be chaired by Olufemi Awoyemi, chairman Proshare Group. Keynote will be delivered by Francis Chuka Agbu SAN, FCIArb.(UK) Senior Partner at LEXAVIER PARTNERS and Professor Yinka David-West, an academic director at Lagos Business School and Enterprise Development Centre (EDC) of the Pan-Atlantic University respectively. Other industry expert expected at the conference include Timi Akinbo of Tanjalo Nigeria, and Andela Nigeria veteran Daniel Okwufulueze.
We have planned the following content over the two-day event;
power-packed Panel sessions Blockchain and DeFi product exhibitions Blockchain for Lawyers & Legal Practitioners Workshop in Partnership with Innovation & Technology Lawyers Network. Communicating Blockchain Technology Workshop for journalists in Nigeria, in partnership with Africa Blockchain University (ABU) and Blockchain4Good Hackathon for developers. (Platform partnerships include IBM, Tezos, Quras, Vitelab, Waves, Ethereum Foundation). Our conference theme has been carefully chosen in line with current waves in the industry. Talks will explore the critical role of asset tokenization, stablecoins, etc in financial inclusion, an insight into how regulators are attempting to keep up with the pace of global innovation, and the expectations for Decentralized Finance (DeFi) in the coming years.
DeFi aims to give anyone with an internet connection access to world-class financial services. So the concern for us is this, given the new building blocks of the emerging programmable money world, how can we make financial services better and include the huge number of the excluded masses in Nigeria and across Africa?
In the coming weeks, we shall be announcing our keynotes, speakers, and exhibitors. Feel free to shoot us an email if you will like to make presentations in line with our conference agenda.
