About OBTU

Blockchain Technology Doesn’t Matter Unless It Helps People

Organization of Blockchain Technology Users aims to advocate for Blockchain Technology adoption in Nigeria and across Africa.

OBTU will work with all levels of government and other stakeholders to support employment growth and career opportunities in Blockchain Technology. We also will strive to promote and sustain community development initiatives to enhance consumer safety and industry competitiveness and foster healthy relationships between the ecosystem and regulatory agencies.

"In Africa, there is a concept known as 'ubuntu' - the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievement of others."
- Nelson Mandela

This is our main focus at OBTU.
