On Saturday, the 2nd of April, blockchain solutions company, Jelurida Africa, officially concluded its blockchain meetup series in Ghana. Earlier last month, the company launched the meetup series, which it tagged as a blockchain awareness program, in preparation for the Europe-Africa Blockchain Developers’ Call (E-ABDC).
The concluding episode of the meetup series, which was tagged as “Blockchain in Fintech: How Can the Blockchain Technology Revolutionise Finance as We Know It?”, featured two guest speakers— Roselyne Wanjiru, the Director of Growth and User Acquisitions at Pesabase, and Foster Awintiti Akugri, the Founder and President of Hacklab Foundation.
During the course of the meetup, Founder of Hacklab, Awintiti Akugri, gave a speech on the proliferation of blockchain-backed coins and tokens, and the sustainability of these assets. Akugri comprehensively discussed the need for investors to keep a close watch on the viability of the projects on which they invest in. According to Akugri, it is only this form of due diligence that would go a long way in considerably securing the funds of current and prospective investors.
Roselyne Wanjiru, alongside giving a platform presentation on Pesabase, took a path similar to Akugri’s speech by cautioning the attendees on picking out cryptocurrencies of choice for investment. Wanjiru emphasised the need to look out for four red flags, which include: the guarantee of daily or unrealistic returns, companies without verifiable certification(s) from regulatory authorities, greed, and manipulation into investing. These signs, according to Roselyne, are major indicators that such investments (or cryptocurrencies) are largely shams. For a recorded version of the session, click here.
