Roqqu, the biggest blockchain company in Nigeria, has emerged as the 2022 Best Blockchain Company in Nigeria of the Year at the Business & Other Financial Institutions (BAFI) Awards, confirming the reports of our excellence that we’ve received in the past.
Listed as a nominee in this category that featured remarkable competitors seeking the number one spot as Best Blockchain Company in Nigeria of the Year was a huge honour for us and a humbling experience.
We believe that Roqqu’s win of this prestigious award is a well-deserved recognition of its contributions to the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrency and blockchain as a whole in Africa in the last few years.

In his acceptance speech, Mr Ayo, thanked the organisers of the event as well as the management and staff of Roqqu. He also extended his appreciation to the brand’s customers because Roqqu wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t have people to build for. He also recognized that the award is a recognition of our commitment to building and making the blockchain ecosystem mainstream in Africa. One where Africans can with the use of just one app can access several opportunities available in the blockchain space.
This award serves as a reminder that the work that we do does not go unnoticed, and it also serves as an encouragement to continue the great work that we do.
