Qala Africa For Bitcoin Development

“Bitcoin for Africa, by Africans” was the key theme at the Qala Bitcoin developer offsite event held earlier this month in Lagos, Nigeria. And that theme, as well as the event itself, spoke to one of the continent’s greatest opportunities today, as well as Qala’s larger mission and how it is finding success already.

Growing Opportunity Among Pervasive Challenge

It’s imperative to know that the growing adoption of Bitcoin in African countries like Ghana, Nigeria, Togo, South Africa and the Central African Republic is connected to the intensive Bitcoin education programs organized by Bitcoin-focused firms and stakeholders in these jurisdictions, such as Qala, a program meant to train African Bitcoin and Lightning Network developers.
