I am pretty sure that the transaction fee plus the amount of time it requires for Bitcoin to have a confirmation is the only thing that stops Bitcoin from surging within Africa. People within Africa have smart phones and Internet access and it wouldn't be that tough to get more people into Bitcoin because they already know how to use electronic items.

Bitcoin could be a better option to use instead of something like M-Pesa or the new mobile banking companies that are out there.

Already repeatedly random questions about whether Bitcoin will help poorer countries and people. Homeland all Who lives the black continent I think Bitcoin will not be able to do anything because this is not a situation where you can earn money and help those people. The first priority for people who live in Africa needs knowledge, it is knowledge that can raise their standard of living.

Yes Africa can embrace bitcoin. This is already happening as large numbers of the masses all over significant part of Africa are already investing heavily and transacting businesses in bitcoin. The acceptability of the coin is high thereby making it very possible for mass embrace.
