TPB77 – Empowering African Women through Bitcoin with Marcel Lorraine

“If you’re born in a cage, if you’re born in prison, then freedom will look funny to you. But with a tool such as Bitcoin, this actually opens your eyes to your rights as a human, your rights as a citizen.” – Marcel

My guest today is Marcel Lorraine. Marcel is the Founder & CEO of Bitcoin Dada, a women centric entity that is working towards educating African women into Bitcoin. In this episode we discuss the systemic barriers women face in Africa, how Bitcoin can help transform opportunities and beliefs, the strength of Bitcoin Dada’s grassroots community approach, the role African women play as the foundation of communities, practical use cases and adoption challenges, and more.
