Show Notes

In the words of Bolu Abiodun, it was definitely an NFT weekend. From the coffin guys to Baba Onilu, the non-fungible token market was on a spree. We — well, mostly Bolu — talked about how a “stale” meme was sold for over a million dollars and why we should probably dig up and mint some of our grandparents’ pictures.

Why Kenya is after Nigerian fintechs

Lawsuits are flying across the tech space. The first involves a company called Meta suing Meta (formerly Facebook) for trademark violation. The company disclosed that it had been negotiating with Facebook over a peaceful settlement, but having failed to do so, they have resorted to a legal solution. eCommerce giant, Amazon is also suing Facebook group administrators for fake reviews, while Elon Musk vs Twitter has taken a new direction. But that's not all we discussed, as we talked about Russian banning crypto, Netflix's declining subscriber numbers, and Kenya's fascination with Nigerian fintechs.
