We're kicking off the www.BitCoin.co.za
for South African BTC users.
SA has some challenges in getting BTC up and running, specifically currency controls. But we hope to raise a community that can help us overcome these challenges.
Anyone from anywhere else is welcome to drop their 2 bitcents on how BTC can begin to be used in a new region. Or just Troll, there is no activity at the moment so even trolls are welcome
So far Bitcoin is primarily a store of value, and to function smoothly in that regard it needs a proper market place. I don't know if SA uses USD. If you guys do, then anyone in SA can start with Bitcoins in a matter of minutes. If not, you should consider setting that up.
Anything that is vendor related is mainly a matter of figuring out where the local legislation stands, mainly with revenue reporting and the like, problem which, most likely, can only be discussed with locals.
