• Bitcoin had a defining year in 2022 and will continue to grow in 2023.

Bitcoin has had an incredible year in 2022, and it looks like the momentum is not slowing down for 2023. As the world continues to watch, Bitcoin is cutting the dead weight of speculation and is proving its utility and reliability as a form of money. This has been made evident by the increasing trade volume in Africa, which is driven by the necessity for a cheaper and more efficient payment solution.
At the Africa Bitcoin Conference in Ghana, the Built With Bitcoin Foundation opened the Bitcoin Technology Center (BTC), a learning and training center in Kumasi, Ghana. This center is expected to educate 400 people in its first year, and is a testament to the growing importance of Bitcoin in the Global South. It is clear that Bitcoin is providing a much needed solution to the financial problems that have been plaguing this region.
Looking ahead, it is clear that the divide between Bitcoin and other forms of money is only going to grow. Bitcoin is backed by human work and has already proven its utility and reliability. This is evidenced by the increasing trade volume in Africa and other parts of the world, as well as the growing number of businesses that are accepting Bitcoin payments.
As we move into 2023, it is up to us to educate people and governments about why Bitcoin is the future of money. We must make sure that its true potential is realized, and that it can be used to benefit billions of people across the globe. With this in mind, we must continue to provide resources and create opportunities to help people learn about and adopt Bitcoin. Only then can we ensure that Bitcoin is given a chance to succeed and reach its full potential.
