The inaugural Bitcoin conference was held in Cape Town on the 16th and 17th of April 2015. The hugely successful event boasted a distinguished and varied audience in attendance including the South African Reserve Bank, the South African Treasury Department, the Financial Intelligence Agency, some of South Africa’s largest banks as well international and local entrepreneurs, investors, corporates and start ups.
Speakers and audience members gathered to discuss all things Bitcoin, including what Bitcoin is and how it is changing the way we do business.
Here are some quotes from the conference:
A second Bitcoin Africa Conference, to be held on the 3rd and 4th of March 2016 in Johannesburg, is already scheduled and promises to be as captivating as the first one. Matters such as the challenges and opportunities provided by bitcoin and the block-chain technology as well as their impact on the current social, economic and political order will be up for discussion.
