Held at the Landmark Center in Lagos on June 26, 2024, the conference attracted over 1,000 participants, eager to explore the potential of Web3 and its financial opportunities amidst a turbulent economic landscape.

The interactive sessions delved into the intricacies of DeFi, highlighting its role in creating sustainable financial solutions and fostering economic resilience.

A testament to its commitment to inclusivity, NFT NG partnered with @Shuttlersng to provide free transportation for attendees from the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and Lagos State University (LASU). Additionally, secure and discounted travel routes were arranged for participants commuting from various parts of Lagos without private cars, ensuring easy access for all.
