Lucky Uwakwe, Chair of BICCoN, emphasized that the meeting welcomes all digital asset stakeholders—including exchange operators, wallet providers, and other virtual asset service providers (VASPs)—as well as key industry associations.

Notable participants will include leaders from the Blockchain Nigeria User Group (BNUG), the Cryptographic Development Initiative in Nigeria (CDIN), the Digital Currency Consortium (DCC), and the Stakeholders in Blockchain Technology Association of Nigeria (SiBAN).

Uwakwe is optimistic about the potential outcomes of the meeting, stating:

Everyone’s presence and insights are invaluable as we collectively navigate the regulatory terrain and strive toward fostering an environment conducive to innovation and growth within the blockchain and cryptocurrency sector.

The roundtable marks a proactive effort by Nigerian regulatory bodies to collaborate with industry experts to refine digital currency regulations.

The timing of the roundtable is particularly important given the current uncertainties in Nigeria’s crypto market, especially the legal challenges related to crypto exchanges like Binance.

The Nigerian government officially invited Binance to discuss allegations of manipulating the Nigerian naira; however, during these meetings, two executives of the crypto exchange were detained and now face multiple charges related to money laundering.

One of the executives, Nadeem Anjarwalla, managed to escape custody and was later found in Kenya, now facing extradition back to Nigeria.
