After 2 days, we arrived to the more civilized region of Douala where we did our fourth bitcoin exchange. Smiley Thanks to our bitcoin contact in Mali, we were introduced to Dani who was interested in exchanging. Dani was kind and paid us (for our) bitcoins in advance as we had some technical problems. We made a good friend and spent the weekend ‘resting’.



Quote
After speaking French through 11 countries we finally arrived in Angola. As a native speaker of Portuguese, things got easier for me and for our bellies. The food is amazing here just like my hometown.

It’s a beautiful country and there are such friendly people here. No corruption so far and lots of ATMs. Everyone is very helpful as well. After 4 days in Luanda with some friends, we are on the road again. Today we did 515 km to Lobito where we met a contact to do our fifth Bitcoin exchange, this time to Angolan Kwanzas. Another successful Bitcoin transaction!

The Internet is getting faster as we head south.

As far as I'm concerned, getting 5 Bitcoin exchanges in Africa, with their time and tech constraints, is a huge win!

Hopefully they should not have many problems getting their 6th in South Africa.

If they could make a small detour into Zimbabwe that would also be awesome, given their recent monetary troubles... although that is probably too much to hope for, given the distances involved. But it would definitely make the headlines!

Remember this?

From where they are a detour to Zim is a couple of 1000kms.

They should have not problems in SA to do exchanges.

localbitcoins.com is quite active here.
Also an online exchange at www.bitx.co.za.

If you liked this post buy me a beer.  Beers are quite cheap where I live!

#BitcoinAfrica proceeds to Namibia!

http://localbitcoins.blogspot.fi/2013/12/bitcoinafrica-proceeds-to-namibia.html

Quote
Namibia seemed to be easy cake to find a Bitcoin trader in, since there was a Bitcoin enthusiast already there.

"Yesterday we managed to do another trade with a Namibian guy, he said that is following all the stories of the trip through your magazine since we started. He took some pictures of our bikes to proof with his friends that it was all real.

He told us that is convincing all his friends to start using bitcoin and after this it would be easier."

The Best Real-World Bitcoin Merchant Pioneers of This Year
December 29, 2013


Quote
Riders Borja and Elvis took on a task that would be daunting even with a suitcase full of US dollars: an epic motorcycle journey from Morocco to Cape Town, stopping in around 16 different African countries along the way.

The fact that they decided to fund the adventure at every stop by trading bitcoins with locals made the challenge even more impressive.

The duo were sponsored by LocalBitcoins, who have done much to bring bitcoin into the physical world by making face-to-face trading simple and accessible. The company also provides the most popular form of bitcoin trading in countries where bank transfers are difficult or impossible.

Borja & Elvis managed to find a trader buying Bitcoin in South Africa! That means that the Bitcoin Africa tour is completed quite succesfully. Bitcoin knowledge was spread to many new countries. Exchanges were made at least in South Africa, Namibia, Togo, Morocco, Cameroon and others.
