- Bitcoin Ekasi, a circular bitcoin economy initiative located in South Africa, has opened the Bitcoin Ekasi Center to provide financial literacy and bitcoin for local youths, entrepreneurs, and businesses.
- Ekasi has already onboarded 10 local businesses to bitcoin in the area. The education center has signed on around 20 youths already in just one week and has a goal of doubling its attendance in the near future. Additionally, during the mornings, the center is open to the entire community Tuesday - Friday, and all day Saturday.
- The youth attending the center’s educational program will also spend time with the Surfer Kids, another non-profit started by the same founder of Bitcoin Ekasi, Hermann Vivier, which focuses on character building and empowerment in impoverished areas.
