If you don’t know about Bitcoin and blockchain, you should – especially if you want to accumulate wealth in Africa. Bitcoin is the virtual currency challenging governments, circumventing banks and threatening to blow old-school currency out the water.

Just 10 years ago, Bitcoin was another office joke in Africa. The rare few who took it seriously have made millions.
“One year and seven months ago. November 2015. That was the month I started with R3,500 ($260) and now it’s worth R37,000 ($2,800). A Bitcoin was $260. Exactly one year later that Bitcoin was $900. It grew over 300%. Today it’s $2,800.”
This was the moneymaking turning point for communications and marketing employee Shireen Ramjoo who, at the age of 32, was so taken by Bitcoin she left her job in the bank to start her own consultancy, Liquid Crypto-Money.

There seems to be a big market for Bitcoin opening up in the African continent. The interest is there and it just take some time to finally get things done. Soon there would be a critical number of people who will make the African market seething with fire and gusto. We just hope that there would no big problems with the authorities as realistically speaking the government still has the power to declare anything in this world illegal...especially with Bitcoin (or cryptocurrency for that matter) having an image as an anti-institution and anti-banking.

Forbes really should watch their content or they might be in danger of becoming the financial Huffington. I've noticed a number of click bait articles appearing even on the parent company. Their subsidiaries seem to be a bit wonky at times too. Or maybe they just need better staffing to monitor and filter paid press releases (though this is actually a cover story!)

This isn't to say they haven't put out good stories - and the main content of this is also good (hey, welcome onboard, big continent!).

Can't really blame the editors and journalists who aren't crypto experts in the least. Oh wait, you can blame them for not doing their very basic research. That is still a pre-requisite of journalism, isn't it?
