BitFinance to host first Blockchain Summer School event in Zimbabwe

Announcements | November 16, 2016 By:

BitFinance and BlockChain Academy will be hosting the first ever Blockchain Summer School in Harare, Zimbabwe on November 22-25 2016.

The event intends to educate and explore the benefits of bitcoin as well as stimulating discussions on the challenges that inhibit cryptocurrency adoption in Africa.

“Zimbabwe is the hardest country in the world to do international transfers, online payments or get access to credit in real terms and many people are looking towards bitcoin as a solution. We decided to run this event because we saw a significant and growing number of requests from people who wanted to use Bitcoin but they didn’t know how to get started or how it works,” said Tawanda Kembo, growth hacker at Bitfinance.

Speakers at the school will include well-known local and international speakers. The organizers intend to make the program an annual affair. The registrations for the event are open and are priced at $199, $39 and $ 69, depending upon the number of days, one wish to attend.
