The Blockchain Nigeria User Group (BNUG) is a group of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency developers, enthusiasts, and investors driving the adoption and awareness of the Blockchain industry in Nigeria and across Africa, since 2016.
The ever-innovating BNUG maximises the acceleration of technology to make the world a better place for all, and through its most recent programme, ‘Lagos Blockchain & FutureTech Conference/Exhibition’, the group has come up with ways to impact and support the Nigerian political ecosystem through blockchain technology.
Through the use of Non-Fungible Token (NFT), an aspect of blockchain comprising cryptographic assets with unique identification codes and metadata, BNUG is creating political awareness.
“While the existing metaverse industry has been described as ‘basic and weird’ due to nascent technology and adoption, it’s expected to have a profound impact on gaming, social interaction, education, and arts. The marriage between metaverses and NFTs is inevitable since the metaverse NFTs will power the next growth cycle in digital collectibles on the internet.
We have also seen huge investments by bigtechs like Microsoft, Meta, NVIDIA, HTC, and Apple into VR, AR, and other kinds of XR hardware, pointing to a huge potential in the Virtual worlds. Moreover, over 5 million people currently log in to the metaverse and virtual world creating and participating in the metaverse economy valued at over $825 Billion!”
