It started with an intensive masterclass session in January. Binance’s community in Nigeria has relentlessly provided service and education to the country’s crypto community.
In the previous months, Binance has hosted more than 100 total events, both online and offline, across nine locations in Africa. This was possible with the gracious support of more than 10,000 Binancians who were present at these gatherings.
Another stellar achievement that Binance Nigeria has recorded is the ongoing effort to reach out to campuses in the country.
