Mythical Beings – NFT Flagship project by Tarasca
NFTs or Non-Fungible Tokens refer to unique blockchain projects with blockchain management rights. What makes them innovative and valuable is to provide the ownership proof of the original asset, which can be reviewed by anyone, to capture the value needs of users and to offer the high-speed transfer of assets on the chain. Therefore, they are getting the investors' attention thanks to many new NFT possibilities, for example, for game items, digital art collections, event tickets, and even ownership records of physical assets.

Read Jelurida Africa comments on Nigeria Crypto ban
Adedayo, Jelurida Africa managing director, commented on the recent prohibition on cryptocurrencies by the Central Bank of Nigeria. In this CoinPost article, he explains that the imposed ban is an aggressive strategy to exclude crypto investors from the traditional banking system, therefore it is a threat to the development of blockchain-related fintech organizations. In Nigeria, where most of the population is involved in cryptocurrencies looking for transparency, the best way to address this situation would be to engage directly with rules to make different financial ecosystems coexist. Despite the CBN's directive, Jelurida Africa expansion plan is to engage more African countries through many initiatives and educational meetups, to adopt the decentralized system offered by blockchain technology.
