Gabriel Kurman, IOVLabs Co-Founder says: "RSK is home to the fastest growing DeFi for Bitcoin ecosystem that aims to bring real-life solutions to problems that users of centralized finance face. I am thrilled as this event is the result of a joint mission of the RSK community, ABCD, and Techrity, and what’s more - it’s the first such venture undertaken in Africa. Given its young population and Bitcoin adoption, Nigeria has the opportunity to lead the development of the Internet of Value in Africa. The development of web3 and blockchain is equally important to us in providing access to advanced technologies that can be useful in combating the digital divide and financial inclusion."
