If you're a regular listener of the Techpoint Africa Podcast then you probably know that we discussed Autochek’s acquisition of the Moroccan cars marketplace KIFAL Autos, last week. We also brought up a report that shows that most car marketplaces in Nigeria made up to 150% profit from car sales.

Interestingly, Autochek reached out to Chimgozirim to clear things up and we decided to kick off today's episode of the Techpoint Africa Podcast with that.

As it turns out, the BNPL market for cars is huge and Autochek works with a lot of parties to provide the services they do. Chimgozorim's analysis of why it might seem like Autochek making a killing from interest rates is interesting and you can tune in to find out more.

We moved from Autochek to the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) rules on cryptocurrencies. Like the Autochek story, we also discussed this last week but our panellists at the Techpoint Africa Blockchain Summit had some exciting things to say about the SEC's rules.


Founder of the Blockchain Nigeria User Group (BNUG), Chimezie Chuta, believes that the regulations issued by the SEC do not address the bigger picture when it comes to cryptocurrencies.

Senator Ihenyen, President of Stakeholders in Blockchain Technology Association of Nigeria (SiBAN) did not quite agree with Chuta. If you missed the Techpoint Africa Blockchain Summit, and want to hear Ihenyen's view on the rules, you can tune in to the podcast or just see the video here.

We rounded off today's podcast with the Nigerian government's plan to tax calls to give you healthcare. Well, Chimgozirim and Oluwanifemi got into a heated debate about the issue, with arguments ranging from what the government does with the taxes it currently receives and why it is taking more taxes from Nigerians.
