Winning Together by Working as a Team

We are Stakeholders in Blockchain Technology Association of Nigeria (SiBAN), an association of blockchain & digital assets industry players, by blockchain & digital assets industry players, and for blockchain & digital assets industry players founded in 2018 to serve as a self-regulatory body towards a friendlier, safer, and bigger blockchain & digital assets industry in Nigeria.

SiBAN is a self-regulatory body. It is founded by stakeholders in Nigeria’s blockchain and cryptocurrency community for the purpose of supporting players in the space; educating users and members of the public about the blockchain technology; promoting adoption by both private and public bodies; ensuring consumer protection and safeguards against scams; and working with regulators to help maximize the untapped potentials of the blockchain

Founded on the right to peaceful assembly and association under section 40 of the Nigerian Constitution, SiBAN operates as an association with a decentralized structure where consensus is reached through every registered node (member) in the SiBAN community.

At the Nigeria Fintech Week 2021, SiBAN was recognized as “The Best Blockchain Association in Africa”. We continue to advocate innovative and inclusive regulatory approach to blockchain & digital assets in Nigeria.
