Hackathon Africa, a leading blockchain platform, has unveiled an initiative to train students across Nigerian universities on the technology. 

In a statement, the firm said the initiative, titled “Campus blockchain bootcamp and hackathon”, is in collaboration with Africa BIoT Labs and supported by Internet Computer (ICP).

Hackathon Africa added that the programme aims to foster creativity, innovation, and collaboration among young blockchain developers across four selected Nigerian universities.

The firm said the programme involves three phases which begin with a tour of the selected universities to build awareness.


The second phase involves a virtual training boot camp for the participants while the last phase is a hybrid event bringing together participants, mentors, industry experts, and investors.

The company said the third phase will also feature a startup pitch session that will provide an opportunity for the most promising projects to secure grants and funding to further their development.

Speaking on the initiative, Adedayo Adebajo, CEO of Hackathon Africa, said the programme would empower the students.


“We are excited to bring the Campus Blockchain Bootcamp and Hackathon to Nigerian universities. This initiative will empower students to explore the potential of blockchain technology, collaborate with like-minded individuals, and ignite their entrepreneurial spirit,” he said.

“We believe that Nigeria has immense talent and potential in the blockchain space, and through this program, we aim to catalyze the growth of the ecosystem.”
