Sometime last year, we talked about Bitmari, a new Bitcoin-based money remittance startup for the African market which had shared its plans to introduce its service to Zimbabweans with some applications specific to the country.
In the past few months, it has carried out pre-launch sign-ups and the service is now in its beta-testing phase. Despite having laid most of the groundwork the startup is yet to launch the service locally, having encountered delays because of the necessary regulatory hoops that entities have to jump through to enter Zimbabwean financial services.
While all of that is still being finalised the Bitmari team is sharing as much information as possible on its service and how Bitcoin, its key driver actually works.
On Thursday the 28th of January 2016, there will be a Bitmari Meet-and-Greet at the Rainbow Towers in Harare. Starting at 5.30 pm the event(which is open to the public) is meant to offer interested parties an opportunity to learn more about BitMari and Bitcoin with an emphasis on exploring the opportunities that can come from using the service.
Sinclair Skinner, the co-founder of BitMari is also going to be there, sharing more information on how Bitmari is expected to complement the local financial service scene.
The event will hopefully go a long way in addressing the numerous questions that Zimbabweans have had about the trustworthiness of cryptocurrency solutions in the local environment.
