Pidgin Parlour

In season 5 we launched Pidgin Parlour, Bankless Africa’s first step towards localization and widening our reach. Nigeria is a key market in crypto adoption with a huge population of crypto natives. And pidgin is spoken widely in the country. The population of Nigeria also makes it a prime target market for most crypto protocols and entities seeking to penetrate the African market. Establishing Bankless Africa as a key crypto media powerhouse in this market opens up the possibilities of monetization of our content to these protocols/entities seeking to reach the Nigerian market. And Pidgin Parlour is in a great position to do that. Season 6 focus areas for pidgin parlour

  1. Translation Services - we are creating a framework for pidgin translation. We hope to complete and implement this in season 6. We aim to establish ourselves as the go-to for all things pidgin translation in web3.
  2. Pidgin Parlour Podcast - launched and looking to lift off. Spotify
