Odum Chijioke: Young Nigerian making waves with cryptocurrency
With the realm of crypto-currencies creeping stealthily into Nigeria’s economic sphere, a young Nigerian man has ascended the ladder, becoming one of the most reputable names to be heard when crypto-currency is mentioned in Nigeria.
Odum Chijoke John, a native of Anambra State in the eastern part of Nigeria, is a tech-driven Nigerian Business Executive residing in Lagos, Nigeria. Born in the early 90s to a family of six and bred in Lagos, Chijioke can be referred to as a child prodigy, nursing a burning enthusiasm for tech from his early years.
At the tender age of 14, he created his first website chiji14.muf.mobi, which was a forum for tech interaction and webinars. He finished his tertiary education at the Federal University of Technology in Owerri Imo State, where he garnered more thirst for the tech world. He discovered bitcoin in February 2017 and traded for a while using various platforms.
In October 2018, Chijioke founded the Chiji14xchange, which in no time became a leading cryptocurrency exchange platform in Nigeria.
