[Learn the ropes of Bitcoin entrepreneurship with a chance to participate in a $1,000 giveaway]
Paxful, one of the largest peer-to-peer cryptocurrency marketplaces in the world, will host a Bitcoin 101 Pan African Webinar, alongside renowned industry leaders, to teach the ropes of crypto entrepreneurship.
The Webinar is part of Paxful’s ongoing educational efforts in Africa, aiming to share knowledge about safe and effective Bitcoin trading while inspiring locals to become their own boss through crypto.
“Africa is Paxful’s leading market which has endless potential for crypto adoption. The ambition of African youth and their ability to embrace new technologies is what drives the nation forward. Africa will soon be in the pilot seat of the crypto renaissance not just on the continent, but worldwide.”
~ Ray Youssef, CEO & Co-Founder, Paxful
The webinar is split into two parts:
- The first hour is all about the fundamentals of Bitcoin first-hand from the founders and CEOs of five leading crypto companies.
- The second hour of the webinar discovers how to build a successful trading business on Paxful.
The highlight of the event is a chance to participate in the 1-on-1 mentorship program by Modibe Matsepane, Paxful’s Africa Community Coordinator and a crypto enthusiast.
Sign up during the webinar as one lucky attendee will be randomly selected to receive private mentorship, while others will be added to an exclusive channel for insider trading tips.
“Paxful is thrilled to collaborate with the industry leaders in the country – it’s crucial we work together to build a long-lasting crypto ecosystem in Africa. We’re happy our partners share a common goal of financial inclusivity and hope to help more Africans take control of their money.”
~ Tugba Abadan, Head of Africa & Middle East, Paxful
