Paxful, a peer-to-peer bitcoin marketplace, has just released a series of educational workshops throughout Africa in 2019 in conjunction with the official launch of their wallet app. They have also pledged to continue aiding the growth of entrepreneurship in emerging markets by giving away bitcoin to those who attend the workshop and download the wallet app.
Paxful’s wallet app aims to make buying, selling, and storing bitcoin easier and is designed to work seamlessly in connection with the Paxful website, providing secure storage to all customers. It is available for Android and iOS devices.
Paxful’s education initiative will kick off in South Africa and Kenya in May, with Nigeria and Ghana to follow later on in the year. The workshops will cover the very basics about bitcoin for novices and also further expand on innovative use cases and business applications observed around the world for more experienced attendees.
As a values-driven company, we want to make the bitcoin economy accessible for everyone, especially the underbanked. To this end, we would like to reach as many young people as possible to help them understand the digital currency market and transact safely and with confidence. Our aim is to continue to partner with customers and other key stakeholders to ensure they are well informed about the opportunities presented by peer-to-peer finance,” stated Ray Youssef, CEO, and co-founder of Paxful.
