Smart Blocks is a tech show on LN247 that showcases blockchain technology and cryptocurrency education as an economic tool rather than an isolated complex technology.
The idea of smart blocks originated out of the desire to simplify blockchain technology and cryptocurrency in the easiest form.
Smart blocks was born out of LN247 partnership with Crypto Smart as their official correspondence on blockchain technology.
According to Karla Obakpolor, founder of Crypto Smart, “the goal of smart blocks is to showcase companies, stories, personalities, successes in Africa and Nigeria who are building relevance products using information technology like AI, blockchain technology or Distributed Ledger Systems”
The aim of smart blocks as a tech show is centered on teaching about blockchain technology.
Nevertheless, to some people, blockchain technology still remains a mystery while some people are already using blockchain technology to solve real life human problems.
Smart blocks will also serve as a medium to showcase companies leveraging the blockchain technology to provide real life solutions.
Specific features of Smart Blocks
Blockchain and cryptocurrency education
Education, according to Fafunwa, is the aggregate of all the processes through which a child or young adult develops the attitudes, skills and behaviors which are of positive value to the society in which he lives.
Blockchain is a shared, immutable ledger that facilitates the process of recording transactions and tracking assets on a business network.
Blockchain and cryptocurrency still remain the same to some people while some people did not even understand anything about the technology.
Smart Blocks, through a well planned step by step educational programmes will help to demystify the blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.
Another aspect of the blockchain education is the enlightenment about upcoming crypto projects such as the Nigeria IPR project launched on Algorand blockchain.
It is a good thing to know about new technology but It is another thing to know how it is applicable to humans.
Many crypto projects and startups have leveraged the blockchain technology to create solutions.
One of such suction is Bitsave protocol, a saving + Decentralized finance (SaveFi) to be built on Algorand blockchain.
Smart Blocks will help founders and businesses to showcase their ideas.
This in turn will help people to know more about how blockchain technology is being used in real life.
Personal finance and management
Smart block is not about technology alone. It is a tech show that encompasses all areas of human development.
It won’t be far from the truth to say that, experts in blockchain technology acquire certain skills while dealing with cryptocurrency.
One of such skills is personal finance which is the basis of wealth as highlighted by Grant Cardone.
Management on the other hand is more like a way of life. Smart blocks will reiterate management skills needed as individuals in crypto space.
Not only that, starting a project or founding a company in blockchain technology might be a bit different from a traditional system.
Nevertheless, it still requires certain management skills which will be discussed by experienced blockchain business developers during the well aligned shows.
Stories and personalities
Storytelling is one of the best sources of motivation ever.
This is one of the reasons why smart blocks will be an avenue for crypto enthusiasts and prominent personalities to tell their own story.
Telling their stories will help them to link their current stage with their starting point which can be replicated over and over again to generate similar or extraordinary results.
All these and many more are what makes up SMART BLOCKS
