What’s Binance?

LÁOLÚ added:

“There is so much we can do when we come together. Through my work, I’ve always sought to connect the world to my Yoruba roots. With this project, we’re doing that on a large scale by sharing not only our own stories but that of the diaspora within the digital landscape.”

On November 9, 2021, Djimon and LÁOLÚ will be live on Binance social platforms for a live ‘Ask Me Anything’ chat on Binance YouTube, discussing NFTs, their entrance into the crypto and blockchain space, and how NFTs can impact African artists.

Also speaking, Director at Binance Africa

“We are especially excited to host creators of African descent as we see the profound opportunity NFTs and the blockchain bring to the entire continent.

As NFTs transform the digital art world, it is important that African creators are provided an even larger platform with optimal solutions to reach a more global audience”. Emmanuel Babalola added

comments from Helen Hai, Head of Binance Charity and Binance NFT.

“Nearly 4 times as many people live in modern-day slavery than during the Transatlantic Slave Trade. We know blockchain is a powerful tool that can be used to help tackle complex and horrific social issues – such as this – from tackling corruption to increasing transparency to promoting financial freedom to providing new fundraising streams such as the recent NFT boom.

Cross-industry collaborations such as this one between Djimon, his foundation, Láolú, and Binance are essential to help harness this potential and drive forward blockchain for good.”
