Climate change is challenging every country’s productivity across the globe. Most countries are not able to maintain minimum levels of goods production, especially Nigeria. The country’s population is struggling with food security issues. Consider this – over 100 million in Africa face many crises and don’t have a steady source of food. This number rose by 60% just between 2019 and 2020.
Even in Nigeria, millennials are a significant force and have started to play an important role in the crypto market. Many youngsters who are involved may be the key factor in opening up economic operations to a new generation. The crypto market value may be close to $2 trillion.
