The growth of interest in cryptocurrencies in Nigeria is really important. As this is still a relatively new development in the digital currency market, it is important that people understand the possibilities, effects and limitations of cryptocurrencies on the Nigerian economy. The public lecture will discuss topics like the capacity and flexibility of the currency, the issue of trust involved in the market, its impact on the current monetary system, and the perspectives and economic incentives of agents involved in the digital currency market. This education will help young people prepare for the future, and help them understand the essentials of the crypto market as it relates to the Nigerian economy.
