This is an opinion editorial by Ray Youssef, CEO of Paxful and cofounder of the Built With Bitcoin Foundation.
My plane wheels touched the tarmac, the excitement took over me — it was my first visit to Nigeria in a year, and it felt good to be back.
Anyone who has listened to me over the last seven years, knows I have so much enthusiasm and belief in the future for the people of the Global South — and there is no country that I am more excited about than Nigeria.
As I write this, I have just spent the last 10 days in the country. I had the honor of speaking at an event hosted by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) to explain how Bitcoin helps empower the Nigerian youth. It was an opportunity to talk with people in government and explain why they should embrace Bitcoin — this is a solution to better the lives of the people, especially the youth, and it is already happening.
