'Twas NFT weekend!

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.

Trading stocks on the blockchain

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. 5:32 - A blockchain-powered stock exchange 20:07 - Regulating tech practitioners in Kenya Useful links Why should Nigeria’s next president come from the South?
