Bitcoin Africa Conference recap

We're very proud to have been a part, as speakers and sponsors, of last week's inaugural Bitcoin Africa Conference.

Bitcoin Africa Conference

The conference boasted an impressive and qualified lineup of local and international speakers, including our very own Simon Dingle. It was particularly interesting to have such a diverse audience -- small startups and big businesses; miners and traders; regulators, banks and a few of those with a more anarcho-libertarian viewpoint-- all in the same room sharing their ideas about what Bitcoin is and could become.

Below is the slide deck of the presentation titled "Bitcoin Going Big" with overlaid captions to give some context.

It references the informative CoinDesk State of Bitcoin Q1 2015 report, which lists Luno as one of the major players in the Bitcoin ecosystem.

We're looking forward to future events raising the profile of Bitcoin in South Africa and abroad.
