Investing in Africa

Paxful Grants Academic Scholarships to Female Afghan Refugees #BuiltWithBitcoinPaxful, which reported earlier this year that its monthly bitcoin volume in Africa is around $40 million, launched the #BuiltWithBitcoin program in 2017 by donating $50,000 in bitcoin for the construction of a nursery school in Rwanda. The company more recently announced it is increasing its investment in the school by upgrading the facilities, providing teachers with educational materials and salaries, and giving students free launches, uniforms and new desks. It is also building a water filtration system to allow water from local wells to be used for farming. The initiative also recently welcomed cryptocurrency provider Anthem Gold, which donated enough bitcoin to build a 35,000-liter water tank in Rwanda, and funded the cultivation of over eighty sustainable community gardens as well as thirty goats for two villages. “I am grateful to participate in a project that builds sustainable and essential projects for communities in need,” said Anthem Hayek Blanchard, CEO of Anthem Gold. “We hope to use Zam Zam’s knowledge to provide people with the building blocks needed to foster and grow.” Ray Youssef, the CEO of Paxful, was recently interviewed on the Humans of Bitcoin podcast about why Africa needs bitcoin.
