Investing in decentralization

Investing in decentralization

Share this Article

I was introduced to share investing by Mr Bisi Odeleye (a chartered accountant and a stock broker) about 21 years ago. I had just completed my NYSC (Nigerian Youth Service Corp) at the time.  I remember visiting their stock broking firm in Lagos Island several times to purchase shares of companies listed on Nigerian Stock Exchange. I have also continued investing in Johannesburg Stock Exchange after relocating to South Africa. I have learnt a lot about investing in centralization (companies listed on stock exchange are centralized) and I have turned my investing knowledge into two books (Innovation and Investment; step by step guide on how to create wealth and 200 quotes, stats and ideas on investing). In summary, this what I have learnt. If you buy a company that is properly run, and you hold the shares for a long time, you will reap an amazing profit. Many companies however are ridden with social mismanagement or poor governance which eventually destroy them along with investors’ money. Decentralization on the other hand has an advantage because it is powered by blockchain technology, a decentralized, distributed ledger that records the provenance of a digital asset. I also find decentralized projects more exciting because diversity and inclusion are valued higher in the crypto space than in traditional finances. They have also been referred to as catalyst for change. United States Securities and Exchange Commission Chair nominee Gary Gensler said during Senate Banking Committee confirmation hearing recently “I think, as I teach at MIT on these subjects, that these innovations have been a catalyst for change. Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have brought new thinking to payments and financial inclusion…” The boldest and most profound statement I have come across about the multimillion dollar opportunity in bitcoin is this “All investors hope for financial freedom. Few achieve it. Because few investments actually offer it. And those that do often require access (accredited investor only) or have low liquidity (startups). Bitcoin is open to anyone, anywhere and can be bought and sold anytime.”

“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep you will work until you die.” Warren Buffett

Find time to watch my YouTube video (Bitcoin and Financial inclusion) and join the conversation.

I explained how Bitcoin and Blockchain can improve economic efficiency, productivity and financial inclusion. I also discussed helpful tips for investing in Bitcoin.
