Dash Continues to Gain Speed Throughout Nigeria

Dash Continues to Gain Speed Throughout Nigeria

Since adopting the decentralized Dash as our go-to cryptocurrency in Nigeria, we have put the digital asset firmly on the map in this part of the world.
While it was already a permanent fixture in the world’s top 10 cryptocurrencies, it remained an enigma here in the days before DashSquad; that all changed when our team began enthusiastically spreading the word about just how unique and efficient Dash was, representing as it does a convenient monetary solution for a range of everyday applications.
While it would be gilding the lily to claim that every Nigerian you come across is now au fait with the digital currency formerly known as Darkcoin, a community of tech-savvy, outward-looking individuals has taken Dash into its heart, enamoured with its low fees, swift transactions and comparatively stable price – particularly when compared to other forms of cryptocurrency.
But let’s talk about exactly what we’ve achieved during this whirlwi…

How Nigeria Beat the Odds to Become Africa’s Cryptocurrency Heartland

How Nigeria Beat the Odds to Become Africa’s Cryptocurrency Heartland

African nations can’t get enough of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. That’s the message touted by western media at least, which is happy to cheerlead the measures Africans are taking to reclaim their financial freedom and combat inflation. These stories, while true, fail to get to the heart of the manner. Yes, there’s widespread interest in cryptocurrency throughout the continent, but that’s only half the story.

To truly understand the way in which cryptocurrencies are transforming the lives of people, and helping to establish previously unfancied countries such as Nigeria as an unlikely frontier for innovation, it is necessary to dive deeper and look at the projects being undertaken in these lands. Some are hugely ambitious in scope; others are more modest. But in almost every single documented case, the results have been, by any reckoning, deeply impressive.

DASH MERCHANT ADOPTION IN NIGERIA

DASH NEW ADOPTION BY DAVID CHINONSO MOGAJI
With the way people are seeking places to have fun during the festive period, I had to hold my meet up in a more fun and entertaining style. Days before my meet up, I had to meet with three business owners, and I was able to convince them to accept dash as a means of payment; this was so I could prove that dash is truly a currency that one can use for their daily transactions to those that would be coming for my meetup.
Among these businesses that now accept DASH is a Barbing Saloon, a Boutique and a Supermarket.
I had 24 people in attendance (that is including myself) and we had a great talk on Dash and Cryptocurrency as a whole for about 2 hours after
which we played a dart game I had earlier designed. The rule of the game was that anyone who hits a spot where I wrote 'DASH' aside from the center, would win $5 worth of DASH, but if you hit a
spot I wrote 'Bitcoin' then you would win 0$ worth of DASH and lastly…

We are still running the Dash Global Marathon Event.

Over 30 people came for our last meetup sponsored by Dash Global.  Today’s Meet-Up Held at Marabarido was jaw dropping. Six people knew about Bitcoin. No one knew about Dash. We discussed what assets are, view the graph on Bittrex of Dash over the weeks and how its value has appreciated.

We opened new dash wallet for over 30 folks there. I personally discussed the benefits of dash to them and how they can acquire it. I took them through Luno.com, WallOfCoins.com, gidicoin.com and also gave them a lot of security tips so as not to let them lose their dash.

After the event a lot of the attendees became very interested in crypto currency and most especially DASH.

Statistics:
