The African crypto industry has seen increasing growth over the years and this very much reflected in the active local and foreign presence of crypto firms in the continent. With emphasis in Nigeria being one of the largest markets in the continent, the growth in general awareness has been on a steady up uptrend.
The Media plays a unique role in the growth of new technologies and the blockchain and crypto industry is no exception. From the earliest blogs, podcasts, instructional videos to more sophisticated reporting today, the global awareness of the digital revolution owes many thanks to the media industry.
In Africa which holds great promise in terms of the applications of the blockchain technology, over the years, crypto media firms have sprang up each offering services all aimed at the growth of the technology.
Despite the great benefits which the technology offers, even with the impressive bull run of 2017, the crypto media sub-sector in Africa is still filled with multiple challenges. However, for entrepreneurs and savvy minds, where there are challenges abound greater opportunities.
Over the years as challenges present themselves, CryptoTVPlus continues to push on and this is reflected in the various achievements it has been able to since this time.

Tony Emeka, CEO of CryptoTVPlus speaking on the second Anniversary; “technology plays a significant role in our lives today. From the minute and inconsequential and often not regarded things to the mighty products of technology, our everyday activities have so much depended on technology unlike any time in history. Crypto industry is a growing industry with positive projections in the near future.
Many people still don’t understand how it works, how it can help make life better and easier, what people are doing to solve societal problems and what’s already made. As a media firm, we owe the responsibility of reporting these activities, correctly telling our own stories in our own ways. At CryptoTVPlus, we are just getting started. More are to come.”
