A community is only as good as its members. Fortunately, for us at FTT DAO, we have some of the best members out there on the crypto landscape! 

Although FTT is what unites them all, they’ve all come from very different walks of life to arrive here today. Their stories are exciting and inspirational.  

Today’s Questions from BFFs interview highlights one of those very stories. Abdullahi, an entrepreneur and crypto trader from Nigeria, joins us to discuss his crypto journey. 


My name is Abdullahi Kasimu Abdullahi. I’m from Nasarawa State, Nigeria. I’m an entrepreneur and a crypto trader, and I love to watch movies and inspirational TV shows in my free time. 

Tell us about your crypto journey. 

I have been in the crypto space for more than four years and I have experience with crypto projects like Huobi Global, Kucoin, and SuperEx exchange. Although the journey has had its ups and downs, I’m still glad every single day to be a part of it. 

How did you first learn about FTX and FTT DAO? 

I heard about The FTX exchange from a friend of mine, but that was after I saw the inspirational video about SBF’s biography. That made me curious and I developed an interest and love for both SBF and the FTX exchange. 

For FTT DAO I was approached by Marco on LinkedIn about the project before it started, and I was brought on board alongside two other crypto enthusiasts that shared the same mission and vision as the DAO. We were the OGs that grew the FTT DAO AFRICA community from scratch to over 600 members within a short period of time. 

What are your thoughts on FTT DAO? 

Without a doubt, I see FTT DAO being the biggest crypto project the world has ever seen. Yes, we are new and at an early stage, but we are doing great things that other crypto projects haven’t been able to achieve in many years. 

The mission behind FTT DAO has made me drop other crypto projects I have been working for. Mostly because they’re all about increasing trading volume, sign ups, and publicity. They don’t care about the general public and the impact they have. Through hard work and dedication, FTT DAO will be the greatest project ever established.

Tell us about the event that you have worked with FTT DAO to organize. 

The FTT DAO Crypto meet-up was hosted on August 13, 2022 in Lafia, Nasarawa State, Nigeria. The goal of the event was to inspire and promote blockchain 

adoption for financial independence and career development. 

This event was the first of its kind in Nasarawa State and the response and energy at the event was extraordinary. We had a total of 86 guests that turned up for the event and they were extremely happy and delighted for FTT DAO to host such an event. The expression on their faces was heartwarming. Everyone benefited from the event and was eager for the next one. 

Were there any special moments from the event you’d like to share?

One special moment was when two developers, 10- and 8-year old girls, were brought out to speak at the event. It was really amazing and encouraging to everyone to see young girls already making waves in the blockchain industry, and showing everyone that age or gender doesn’t matter. Anyone can make it and have a positive impact if you work hard and put your mind to it. 

What’s your message to like-minds who want to work with FTT DAO to promote crypto education? 

My advice is to push yourself and work hard. FTT DAO is trying to build something big for everyone. If you share the same mission and vision as we do at FTT DAO, and you feel you can add value to the project, go for it! 

Tell us about the importance of communities in crypto. 

Communities are the backbone of every crypto project. Crypto communities share ideas, collaborate, and enhance unity and solidarity. When they’re passionate, excited, and like-minded, they help the project achieve its intended goals and more.
