In Kuje, Nigeria, we linked developers in the city to rural communities. The inclusion of disenfranchised communities in the development of technology, including blockchain, is essential. These communities have a right to access information and resources, and blockchain holds the promise of improving people’s circumstances. To ensure that this potential is realized, it is necessary to make technology accessible and safe. This requires a focus on educating and protecting people from potential risks, including crypto scams, as the lack of access to quality information makes them particularly vulnerable. We must also actively listen to the beneficiaries, understand their needs and challenges, and work with them to create solutions that truly meet their needs. Any advance in this sense empowers the community to become an active member of the blockchain ecosystem. The Kuje, Nigeria activity was managed by Web3 professional developers from Abuja who connected with +40 preselected attendees to discuss the fundamental aspects of blockchain technology and its applicability in a comprehensible and responsible manner.
