We are solving the problem of lack of visibility. 9 out of 10 creators in Nigeria have never heard of Decentraland. We will introduce Decentraland to over 2,000+ attendees present at this conference, not just the conference but a keep up with attendees with community calls, twitter spaces, personal mentorships on how to navugate their journey within Decentraland ecosystem.

Our community has a growing number of over 1,000+ creative builders and developers; after this event, our numbers will multiply. We will guide and train enthusiasts from this event about Decentraland and its attributes by creating a segment in our community dedicated to just decentraland enthusiasts.
