Paxful Launched Bitcoin Education Drive At African Universities. The high level of youth unemployment in Africa is the main motivation to Paxful’s interest in promoting bitcoin education.
To increase access to the bitcoin economy for many more youths on the African continent, Paxful launched a series of educational workshops across Africa in 2019. The workshops will cover the very basics about bitcoin for novices and further expand on innovative use cases and business applications observed around the world. This education initiative has currently kicked off in South Africa and Kenya in May, with Nigeria, Ghana and other African countries are on the cards for later in the year.
“Africa leap-frogged to the forefront of peer-to-peer finance adaptation. In 2018, our user base in Africa doubled, with most customers being between 18 and 24,” said Artur Schaback, COO and co-founder of Paxful.
This latest initiative forms part of Paxful’s proven commitment to education, which includes building schools in East Africa under their #BuiltWithBitcoin charitable initiative, as well as providing scholarships to young women in the Middle East. The company aims to build 100 schools across Africa and expand its scholarship programs.
The event will take place on 23rd May at Nairobi Cinema from 10 am to 12 pm
For students from Nairobi University, Kenyatta University, Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Catholic University of East Africa, Strathmore University, Multimedia University, Zetech University, Technical University of Kenya, and Kenya Methodist Universit
