The Blockchain Nigeria User Group (BNUG) has been the voice of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Technology in Nigeria since 2016. We speak for an industry that aims to touch the daily lives of Nigerians in every corner of the country — by providing business, jobs, career opportunities, and by investing in the communities we serve.
Blockchain Nigeria User Group is a not-for-profit, industry-funded association representing one of the fastest growing industries on the planet.
dApps allow for various novel application scenarios, which are build upon distributed consensus and thus are hard to block or censor. While Blockchains such as Bitcoin or Ethereum are based on compute-intense consensus mechanisms, more recent approaches focus on voting- or staking-based algorithms that support higher transactions per second and are also better-suited to reflect proportions of majority ownership, which are required in many enterprise application scenarios. Also, the integration of Smart Contracts into Blockchains, for example, based on Ethereum or Hyperledger, leads to a plethora of possible use cases for dApps.
BNUG is a strong advocate for Blockchain Technology in Nigeria and works with all levels of government and other stakeholders to support employment growth and career opportunities in Blockchain Technology, to promote and sustain community development initiatives from coast-to-coast, and to enhance consumer safety and industry competitiveness. BNUG also provides its members with a full range of services and programs including education and training, benchmarking and best practices, networking, advocacy, and industry information.
