The train is expected to start off from Nigeria’s premier university, the University of Ibadan (UI) on the 7th of September, after which it leaves for Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU). The train is expected to touch at least five universities in Nigeria scattered across the geopolitical zones of the country.
Tony Emeka, the Co-founder of Campusbcat says;
“There are always meetups, conferences and others about blockchain which is good, but the enduring effects emanating from these events haven’t really been felt. This is exactly our motivation behind the Campusbcat initiative as we are well aware of the strategic roles youths and millennials play in the adoption of any new technology, social media is an example”
With BCAT Clubs establishment at every one of the schools we touch, the underlying structure to help with the growth and awareness of the blockchain technology in Nigeria is put in place.”Tony Emeka, Founder Campusbcat

Victor Ugochukwu, COO of Campusbcat who is also in charge of the planning and smooth publicity of Campus BCAT 2019 speaking on the proposed event said;
“Africa is changing just like the rest of the world and I am particularly interested in seeing us play major roles at the center stage of disruptive technologies such as the blockchain. It is important that we adapt and reorganize our system to better fit into the more and effective knowledge-driven economies of the world. While we are educating our youths across campuses and giving them the opportunity to express their unique ideas around blockchain, we are also interested in making sure we remedy a deficiency in our system which is the lack of the availability of credible data. How many students in Nigeria are interested in blockchain? How many attended a blockchain/cryptocurrency event within the last quarter or even the previous years? How many have started building or even did their research project around blockchain technology? All these pertinent questions and more would be easily answered with the structure we would be establishing in these respective universities across Nigeria.”
