Bitcoins for Africa


What barrier is preventing Bitcoin adoption in one of the largest and most beautiful continents in the world? Someone has decided to find out.

Localbitcoin has partnered with Borja and his friend Elvis, who are both avid adventurers, as they ride their motorcycle through every country in Africa and set up a Bitcoin exchange in under represented African countries.

“We are two friends who love motorbikes.”, said Borja just before taking a ferry to Tangier, Morocco.

Starting in Morocco and ending in South Africa, with several stops in between. Feel free to tweet your support and assistance to @LocalBitcoins with the #BitcoinAfrica tag.
