Bitcoin has had a defining year in 2022, and as we look ahead to 2023, the prospects for the cryptocurrency remain incredibly promising. One clear indication of this is the fact that Bitcoin adoption is continuing to be led by the global South, particularly in Africa. This is due to the fact that the cryptocurrency offers a cheaper and more efficient solution for people to send money back home and preserve their wealth, creating a divide between Bitcoin and other currencies that is only likely to grow in the coming year.
To aid its adoption in Africa, the Built With Bitcoin Foundation recently opened the Bitcoin Technology Center (BTC) in Kumasi, Ghana. This learning and training center is expected to provide education to 400 people in its first year, making it a legacy for the continent and a symbol of hope for the future.
The fact that Bitcoin is continuing to be used in great numbers in the global South is indicative of its real-life use cases, which are helping to include billions of people into the global economy. This is why it is our responsibility to educate people and governments about the cryptocurrency, in order to show them why it is so essential.
As we look ahead to 2023, it is clear that Bitcoin is starting to cut the dead weight of speculation and is being taken seriously by more and more people. We are at a turning point, and it is now up to us to onboard the next billion Bitcoiners and show the world why it is such a revolutionary and powerful currency. This is why the Built With Bitcoin Foundation is working hard to create educational centers and initiatives to ensure that everyone can benefit from it. As we move into the new year, let us all continue to strive to make Bitcoin more accessible, secure, and decentralized, so that it can truly revolutionize the global economy.
