    This is a nice initiative you've come up with @kingcrypto... I think SmartCash events and activities have not been prominent in Nigeria and there's a lot to achieve from the country, as the most populous country in Africa and also the economic giant of Africa. Outreach and education programs should be organized at large in Nigeria so that SmartCash can grow to compete and eventually rule the Nigerian cryptomarket. With the targeted population and set goals to be achieved, this project will do well to the SmartCash Community. You have my full support on this, and I'm Voting right away. Also, let me know when you're ready to start, once the proposal pass voting, I am ready to join you in executing the projects. More power to you. #TeamSmartCashOutreach

    "Few weeks ago, the Nigerian lower house of the Law Makers (the house of representatives) just gave a directive to the apex bank of the country (the Central Bank of Nigeria, who were initially against cryptocurrency) to work on adoption and regulations of cryptocurrency in Nigeria for best use. This is a positive response from the house of representatives to enhance activities and use of cryptocurrency in the country. This is the actual reason that gave birth to this project

    Greetings fellow Smarties, I will like to expand more information about this project. This project was born out of the need for Mass Awareness of SmartCash in Nigeria, where SmartCash seem all new to about 90% percent of the population and about 60% percent of cryptocurrency users. The birth of this project proposal coincides with the news of the Nigerian government flagging off the adoption of Cryptocurrency and regulations for proper use in Nigeria. Nigeria is the most populous African country and the economic giant of Africa, it has various merchants, business and generates high income from its business activities, both National and international. With a population of about 200 million people, Nigerian involvement in Cryptocurrency is not remarkable and those who deals in Cryptocurrency mostly know of Bitcoin. This is why I have planned to introduce the Decentralised Economy (SmartCash) to Nigeria in a unique style. I have planned to reach out to these 200 million people gradually with various programmes and events which I hope to start with the three (3) Universities adopted, which are located in the South Western region of the country. I and my team members have planned to hold events which includes a Public Campaign of SmartCash Cryptocurrency through each states, where we plan to hold a long-walk for SmartCash in each state, where there will be music to refresh people and call attention. Here, we will share fliers and educate people during the long-walk and also give some goodies to the people around. Also, we will hold series of radio talk shows and television discussions which is targeted at about 40 million people leaving in the three (3) states adopted. The Building of SmartCash Vanguard team in the Universities. Also planned to hold workshops for undergraduates of the tertiary institutions in the states adopted and also a special Seminar in each state which will witness a minimum of a thousand (1,000) participants attendance in each of the three (3) adopted institutions. These institutions have over ten (10) thousand undergraduates, four (4) thousand postgraduate students and about two thousand (2,000) staffs each, who will be invited to attend the special Seminar. Lastly, aside the Mass Awareness and Adoption benefits of this project, the project is targeted at creating Merchants integration services, Business Conversion campaign and also partnership with businesses and Media houses. These media houses and businesses have been contacted and are ready to cooperate with this project. TIMELINE Prior to the below, pre-meeting and discussions holds thrice (3 times), with the selected organizing sub-committee heads, which are pre-oriented on the programme. The below is daily schedule programme of events Seminar for the institutions adopted.
