The technology behind this innovative market, Blockchain, has been identified to be game-changing especially for nations such as Nigeria. The applications of its varied potentials are quite limited only to the understanding and application of man.
With the ability to move value across the world at such an impressive cost and speed, blockchain technology via digital currencies has given the ability to do the unusual.
