IRON LADY: S2E1. The LAGOS #BLOCKTECH CONFERENCE
Posted by Mireille Kooh on / 12 Comments
THIS WEEK ON #ADMP: 30 years on, and the World Wide Web (Not the Internet) in its ‘Dumb’ version is still UNDEFEATED!! The Webs 0.0, 1.0, 2.0, …have survived all sort of ‘Tragedies and Hopes’, before the rise of the latest 21st century iteration of the web:
→ A new web, as an interactive and social web facilitating collaboration between people, using encryption and the Blockchain technology – This encrypted web, the ‘Crypto-Web’, the ‘Blockchain-Web’ or simply the #BLOCKWEB 0.0, (2009-18) and Blockweb 1.0 (2017-?), if you are an #ADMPer!
– WHY ?
Let’s BREAK IT DOWN :
The first World-Wide Web was and still is, an incredible information network (‘Information Highway’) with its own cloud for Data storage and Social Media for faster interactions with the public.
–> It was therefore, mostly a ‘Dumb‘ information network! Meaning: It has ‘little Artificial Intelligence’, just ‘Dumb Users Algorithms‘, working behind the scene.
The ‘old web’ could not garantee ‘Privacy control’, ‘Transparency’, ‘accurate real-time Data’ and was ‘Easy-to-Hack’! –
The next iteration of the web, will be setup on top of this ‘Dumb web’ and it will rely on the #Blockchain, to track all interactions between its users, whilst allowing them to transfer value.
This crypto-web, is also underpinned by the 10 years global use case that has been the rise and rise of the #Bitcoin technology, as per the Satoshi Nakamoto protocole.
–> Think for exemple, sending ‘Money’ or ‘private message’ accross the network, protected by ‘End-to-End-Encryption’ )
–> It is the ‘Internet-Of-Value’ that will protect our Data and value transfers accross this new network, called the #BlockWEB !
That is why we are landing in the land of the ‘Green Eagles’, right in #Nijatech, the ‘Nigerian Technological Ecosystem’, bang in the middle of #Lagos Nigeria, with one question in mind:
‘Is the Nigerian economical and continental powerhouse, getting seduced by the efficiency of the #Blocktech, to transger its huge values! ?’ (#TecH234)
Let’s meet first, with another #IronLady of the #Blockchain, for ‘local Intelligence’ :
She is Black...
She is tall….
She is ‘Fabulous’..
She is smart, some say even ‘Brillant’.
→ She is the powerhouse behind a movement created with another set of dynamic technologists, all over the #AfrotecH (African Technology landscape).
→ She is a well-known and respected face on the #NijaTech scene…
→ She could be the light’ behind a new type of #Blockchain conference on the continent, powered by #ADMP!! -:))
Now, without reaching to her Telegram handle, can you guess who she might be??
Electronic Punch By Mireille KOOH, #ADMP Community Manager
#ADMP1: Hello, Doris! Can you please, introduce yourself ?
#OD : My name is Ojuederie Doris, Founder of Blockchain African Ladies: I am an ardent blockchain lover and preacher and have been in the blockchain space for over 6 years!
Add to that, a blockchain certified expert, a serial entrepreneur with unique expertise on business Development and strategic marketing.
I Am a CEO, and also the Founder of www.blockchainladies.africa a non- governmental educational forum that is centered around educating African women about the low hanging fruits of the Blockchain technology.
I have been at the forefront of blockchain education in Africa and have Organized several Events on Blockchain and Investment with hundreds of people in Attendance!
#ADMP2: #DANG! #Impressive! What is Your Concept?
#OD : Presently i am at the forefront of blockchain education with African women….
Let me rephrase it: Like i said earlier, www.blockchainladies.africa (BAL) teaches women in Africa how to have access to the low hanging fruits of the blockchain.
#ADMP CHATBOT(Popping in): Could the #Blockchain impact other women, the way it impacted, you ??
#OD: Ooh yeah…And i personally believe that blockchain is freedom for the African Women, and i see a serious gender divide with this emerging technology which has caused just a few or a handful of women participating.
Hence in Blockchain African Ladies we educate African women deeply through our various conferences, workshops, webinar, online trainings ….etc about the blockchain technology and we train and encourage women to develop start-ups….which we stand to support as an Organisation because its founded by a Woman.
2. #NIJATECH ADOPTION?
#ADMP: What about ‘adoption’? –> When a technology is used by a significant amount of people, meaning ‘A huge chunk of the population’! Can women help in that field?
#ADMP CHATBOT: #Lol! It’s not exactly as if women didn’t know a thing or two about raising and educating peoples, right?
#OD: That is correct! …And i also believe that by having more women participat …we will ultimately be more closer to h Adoption numbers’ rethe mbeAdoption.
#ADMP CHATBOT: For real ! :))
#ADMP: SHhhhT! Hence the conference then?
#OD: You could say that. And…interestingly we are Organizing the first biggest Blockchain Conference in Africa Focused on Women The BLOCKTECH WOMEN CONFERENCE 2019 (www.event.blockchainladies.africa)
Where we are having the top global Female Founders and Stakeholders around the World, coming together to inspire other women and train participant in basic blockchain skills.
#ADMP: It’s thoroughly FascinatinG!
#ADMP CHATBOT: #AwesomeSauce!
#ADMP: SHhhT !
#OD: You’re funny! :))
#ADMP CHATBOT: Thanks! :)) #GirLPower!
#ADMP CHATBOT: Please, Gives us the TOP5 Themes of this Évent?
#OD : Easy!
- The Looming Financial Revolution
- Africa’s Foremost Blockchain Women Conference
- Attracting Over 700 Attendees to the tourist-friendly City of Lagos
- Educating and training African women on various aspect of the blockchain Technology
- Reinforcing the learning capabilities of the African woman
#ADMP4: How many women do you have in your Forum? You do group therapy ? Do you have a Facebook or Telegram Messenger Group with your community members?
#OD : We, we… have over 700 women in our forum. And, Yes we have facebook and Telegram groups!
#ADMP CHATBOT: Go on then, sling it! :))
#OD: Coming! :)) – Intending members can access these groups via the social column on our website → www.blockchainladies.africa
“i personally believe that blockchain is freedom for the African Women! “ (#OD)
3. #BWCLaGoS19 !
#ADMP5: We covered “Paris Blockchain Conference 2018 ” in Paris. Have you heard about this event? We’d be delighted to support you in any way, shape and form! What’s the Hashtag of your évent please?
#OD : Yes, i heard about the Amazing Paris Blockchain Conference and know a few persons who attended from Nigeria.
We will be so glad to have you support our vision for African women on the blockchain! :))
Our Official Hashtag for the conference is #BWCLagos19
#ADMP ChatBot : #GirLPower..Power..Power !
#ADMP: Yeah! Since our 2017 inception, we’ve been supportive of many tech events all over AfricA, from #Botswana, to #Tunisia! We are preparing an E-Book on our ‘Iron Ladies of the #Blockchain!’
#OD : Whoaah! Its Amazing to know about this!
#ADMP6: How to Become a speaker at #BWCLagos2019?
#OD : To become a speaker….Simply send an E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org – Add the Subject header, “i want to be a speaker”
Or fill the speaker form from the website: www.event.blockchainladies.africa
#ADMP7: What are the TOP certifications in Blockchain you would recommend to anyone willing to get as well educated as you are ?
#OD: Well, for me, there is no such thing as Top blockchain Certifications….Because the technology is still evolving and we are still discovering it.
Although, having said THAT! … You can get certified on the blockchain like i am certified as a blockchain expert, by the Blockchain Council … Because of the fact that I’ve had a certified training with them.
Check the great University of Nicosa in Cyprus, in order to get trained and be certified.
I am hesitant with it, because in the ‘Space’, the ‘Crypto-space’, the ‘Blockchain space’ or whatever you might want to call it!
→ We’ve also had soooO many people who have found solutions, and are indeed solving Major problems on the blockchain….and seriously, they do NOT have any certifications, at ALL !!
#ADMP: #Impressive! This question has much more plot twists than an ‘Asaba movies’ or even ‘New #NollyWooD’ movie it seems! –>
One minute, you are being told that ‘You MUST learn about the #Blockchain, or you won’t understand anything!‘, the NEXT minute, it is: ‘Just Do it Yourself!‘
– We are puzzled now… Which one advice, should we follow?? (#ADMP)
4. #DISTRIBUTED LEDGER TECHNOLOGY ?
#ADMP CHATBOT: A mix of both! … You have to be ready to learn and explore more than what you think you know, as the technology keeps evolving and mutating…
But, studying is always the path of least ‘resistance’, and the ‘Stargate’ to employment, therefore leads faster to ‘Mass-Adoption of a new technology !’
#ADMP: Interesting! Hmmm…And what are the characteristics of…
#OD: Sorry to interrupt! But, just to finish on a very important point, the ‘Certification-thing’ → For example we are featuring Genevieve Leveille, Principal Founder and Chief Executive Officer of “AgriLedger”
→ Agrile Ledger is solving major problems in Agricultural Food supply chain….using the blockchain.
Hence what we are really looking for is people with experiences who have a great understanding of how the blockchain technology works!
#ADMP 8: D.L.T, or Distributed Ledger Technology is the ‘official’ name of the ‘industrial Blockchain technology’, by the way! – What are your finals words to technology fans, around the World? Give us, your Best Quote, pleeeaze…
#OD: First, to Women around the World, Its important to note the time, era and age we are, and its significance.
We are at the Fourth Industrial Revolution. (4IR) we are at a digitalised age. → The Age of Information!
What are you doing with the power of technology?” (#OD)
#OD: More importantly, an emerging technology like the blockchain. Personally speaking, I believe women… women, mostly in Africa have faced a lot of marginalisation. Therefore, the Blockchain Technology can only mean ‘Freedom for the African Women.’
#ADMP CHATBOT: Waouw! That’s a strong statement!!
#ADMP9: ‘SHhhT!’ To end this discussion…(Calmer) Denise…please explain us why would the #Blocktech means ‘Freedom for the Afro-Woman, or indeed any women, or men?
#OD: Correct! #Because its self empowering and have the ability to create Financial inclusion!
