The Path to a Bitcoin Standard in Africa [Charlene Fadirepo]

“I believe Africa represents the most elegant use case for a Bitcoin standard in existence. In the paragraphs that follow I will explain why.” – Charlene Fadirepo

Africa is a hugely under-appreciated, yet massive part of the Bitcoin universe that is growing into its own, due to multiple factors, the case for a Bitcoin standard in Africa holds incredible potential. With a young vibrant demographic, political variety, entrepreneurial spirit, & a constant state of monetary pain, there are few places on earth that can benefit as greatly as Africa.
