Show Notes

Hardly a day goes by without a story on cryptocurrencies or the blockchain. This time, the Nigerian Stock Exchange plans to adopt blockchain technology to settle transactions. 

Temi Popoola, CEO of the Nigerian Exchange, believes that this development will encourage more young people who are major adopters of cryptocurrencies to use the NSE. However, Oluwanifemi and Chimgozirim argue that the technology used for settlement is not responsible for the low patronage among the younger audience. 

Following that, we discussed Kenya’s plan to regulate “tech practitioners” in the country following a bill passed by the parliament.
