In Zimbabwe, Bitcoin caused quite a stir in the last quarter of 2017. Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in Southern Africa which has faced acute economic challenges for over a decade. The peak of the country’s financial woes was in 2008 -2009 when Zimbabwe had to literally dump its own defunct currency in favour of a multi-currency regime.
For this reason, Zimbabweans leapt at the opportunity of using a currency that not only retained its value, but also gained!! As a resilient people, Zimbabweans have been through it all but they never hesitate when opportunities to earn present themselves.
I have been immersed in Bitcoin since January 2016 when i was engaged by BitMari as their Customer Engagement. BitMari was one of only two Bitcoin companies operating in Zimbabwe but we made history as being the ONLY Blockchain company in the world to be officially licensed by a Central Bank to use Bitcoin Technology for remittances. In addition, BitMari is the only Bitcoin company to work with a local African bank. Upon leaving this history making company in January 2018, i was the Operations Manager and had amassed a lot of knowledge on Blockchain and Bitcoin Technology to rival my peers in more developed western countries. Armed with this knowledge, i offer consultancy services on Bitcoin use cases in Zimbabwe and the potential therein. Below i shall outline a few such use cases:
