This was made known on Sunday in Abuja, in a statement signed by Mr Jude Ozinegbe, a Digital Transformation and Blockchain Consultant, an organiser and Founder of Cyberchain.
The conference with the theme: “Embracing The Metaverse Economy” is scheduled to hold this month.
According to Ozinegbe, Cyberchain converges some of the best minds in the tech space annually and connects them with enthusiasts that are eager for the knowledge shared by these experts.
Ozinegbe said: “Blockchain developers, founders and investors have also found Cyberchain events, perfect fits to engage and foster viable business relationships.
“As technology continues to foster the growth of businesses across the globe, it has become imperative for Nigeria to be positioned as a contributor to the fast growing digital economy.
He, however, said that Cyberchain was born out of the need to ensure Nigerians get proper sensitisation about the numerous benefits of the digital economy.
“They include creating more jobs for Nigerians, ease of doing business, transparent governance, safe online presence.
“Others are placing Nigeria on the global map by creating world class projects that contribute to the nation’s GDP,” Ozinegbe said.
