The Blockchain initiative, announced by the Nigerian government, to launch a national wallet to facilitate and enhance the international marketing of local artists, continues to add strategic allies. The launch announced in May, which already has the participation of Koibanx in terms of asset tokenization; and from Algorand, the Blockchain on which it will be built, incorporates MetaMap and Zenith Bank. This is how they informed Cointelegraph en Español through a statement.
MetaMap was selected to facilitate registration, validate identity and guarantee the authentication of users using the platform.

Ogo Onwuzurike, Africa Sales Director for MetaMap reported: “MetaMap is happy to work with the Nigerian government to launch Alke. This is an important effort to empower a new generation of young Nigerian creators to make a living from their art. To be successful, creators must be able to trust the system, which requires the platform to reliably and securely link their earnings to their identity. We are proud to leverage Alke’s identity verification technology to ensure that these talented artists can feel safe participating in this groundbreaking effort, as they seek to offer their art through new technologies, into the metaverse and beyond.”
