Bitcoin advocate, Paco De La India, is in Nigeria to encourage the use of Bitcoin for everyday transactions.
The Bitcoiner, who is on a mission to tour 40 countries in 400 days in a ‘Run with Bitcoin Tour” supported in part by peer-to-peer platform, Paxful, will be introducing Nigerians to the world of possibilities that Bitcoin offers.
During his stay in the country, Paco would host community meet-ups in three major cities across the country, beginning with Lagos, where he met with a community of Bitcoiners on the 30th of July. The remaining events will take place in Kaduna and Abuja on the 10th and 13th of August respectively.
The meet-up events, organized by Paxful, are an opportunity to discuss the use cases of Bitcoin through community engagement with a goal to empower users to attain financial freedom.
Commenting on the “Run with Bitcoin Tour”, Ray Youssef, CEO and Founder of Paxful, said that it’s a great way to increase education and show people how they can maximize Bitcoin’s potential. He says, “The first step to global Bitcoin adoption is education. Paco’s tour echoes Paxful’s mission to educate the community on what Bitcoin can really do. Through these community events, we will continue to inspire and deepen adoption of Bitcoin across this special country.”
Expressing his excitement, Paco said he is thrilled by the genuine interest for Bitcoin among Nigerians.
