President Lucky Uwakwe’s words on the Binance Dispute

In a recent interview with Cointelegraph, BICCoN President Lucky Uwakwe highlighted the negative impact of the ongoing legal battles and the detention of Binance executives. Uwakwe pointed out that these actions have created an environment of uncertainty and risk, which could deter potential investors and partners from engaging with Nigeria’s blockchain industry.

The Need for a Clear Regulatory Framework

Uwakwe praised the Nigerian Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for its efforts in developing a regulatory framework for the cryptocurrency market. He urged for a swift conclusion to this process to provide much-needed clarity for investors and enhance regulatory capabilities. Clear and well-defined regulations are crucial for building investor confidence and effectively managing the cryptocurrency market.

As the situation develops, it will be crucial for all parties involved to maintain an open dialogue and work towards solutions that benefit the entire blockchain ecosystem.
