The first quarter was a very dramatic stage as we were just a newly formed Guild, first in West Africa and Africa as a whole.
During the first quarter we made plans to expand the core team, social media handles, community members and community participation in the Near ecosystem. We hosted a webinar with the crypto community of University of uyo in Nigeria which saw up to 50 people attending the event with atleast 30 near wallets been opened. Around the same time we created 3 contents which were top on Google search in terms of NEARPROTOCOL NIGERIA and several translations were made in Yoruba, hausa and igbo with various graphic designs and Infographs.
Here below was summary of events that took place in first quarter.

This shows how decentralized the NPK Guild and how we wish to make a totally Decentralised autonomous community in Nigeria.
In the last quarter of this year, we decided to show to Nigeria Financial sector the power of NEAR BLOCKCHAIN and benefits of building on NEAR, we also got the guild registered under Nigeria cooperate commission CAC as a legal entity. We also got an office in kano and this is the first time any crypto related platform as a physical presence in the northern part of Nigeria. We had an official launch of the office and rewarded the winners of the kano Hacknode during the office launch. We also hosted a creative content contest and a total of 15N was shared during the event. We have had several meeting with S2 GUILD, C1 guild and Blockchain club of Uganda and plans are on the way to Foster a continental collaboration to push near adoption in Africa.
Today marked Nigeria:nigeria:@61 years of Independence
We wish that the whole Near Ecosystem and the community will celebrate this great day with us:nigeria:
