When building new communities or introducing new folks to bitcoin, the question that pops up is always how best to do this. The challenge is usually that bitcoin isn’t as intuitive for the average person, and at times can even come across as intimidating for folks who have received a lot of mixed information in the past. The idea we came to was to throw a pop-up event where the draw would be a fun hangout with good food/drinks and interesting folks.
A delegation of Bitcoiners followed an invitation of President Faustin Touadéra to visit Central African Republic after the country’s announcement of Bitcoin adoption. The group around Sebastién Gouspillou and Nicolas Burtey met with merchants, government officials and representatives of civil society to learn about the plans and progress of the Bitcoin journey.
