Coming back to the show a full calendar year later (he was our very first guest!), is Tawanda Kembo, who, having been working in IT for 13 years, has been a leading Bitcoin Evangelist in Africa. With everything going on around Nigeria’s economy, the rise in inflation rate is now about 13.7% compared to about 8% which was the inflation rate about this time last year. As Nigeria (Africa's biggest market) heads toward recession, bitcoin could offer recession proof savings. We talk all about this and more.

Wait so let me get this right, I have bit coins in this wallet, then I just pay as normal at a shop that accepts contactless payments? #Cut #It #Out #UncleJoey #FullHouse Last year we had Plutus Chief Communications Officer Filip Martinka on during the early stages in which we learned that while other methods connect to a third-party exchange or hold considerable reserves of bitcoin, Plutus uses its own decentralized exchange to directly connect customers and traders. Now equipped with a new white-paper, we revisit Plutus to see what they're up too. Don’t wait for merchants to accept bitcoin, use Plutus.it sucka!!
