2020 is that conundrum I’m grateful for. Call it bitter-sweet and you won’t be wrong either in that it was my most trying year from a mental standpoint while, at the same time, being the most successful and interesting year I’ve had in my entire life, c’mon I got gifts and cake on my birthday.
I made enough money to take care of myself and family and my biggest flex was that I could actually flex in 2020.
For one who’s always seen dates as social constructs, I don’t buy into the frenzy of new year especially the whole craze of people getting better overnight. …

I wrote my thoughts with a black ink on a white piece, I hope it gets read
I bore my thoughts Black and white, no bloody lies, no shades of red.

The role of media in blockchain adoption
As we enter a new decade, blockchain technology continues to struggle to cross the chasm and achieve widespread adoption. To be fair, the reasons for slow adoption are many and complex.

Blockchain Technology has been tipped to disrupt several industries, it has been touted to revolutionize everything from the future of finance to the cure to poverty and the only way to secure land registries. Now the big question is if it can have a very big impact on democracy. The answer to this question may not be a Nutcracker to some of us that already understands the fact that the blockchain is a transparent, immutable and decentralized digital ledger for storing records of transactions. …
Nigerian states are blessed with natural tourist sites that attract both local and foreign tourists that if well managed can serve as an internal revenue-generating scheme. These states are richly endowed with highly literate population, mineral and material resources of all kinds, which can be harnessed for economic development through investments.
However, all these natural endowments in the state have not translated into many notable industrialization and economic prosperity. The economic development has been at a very low pace despite government interventions and schemes.
