Spreading knowledge about the power of Bitcoin doesn’t just happen by accident. Getting information out to those who need it requires expertise and concerted effort from someone like Kal Kassa. Kal Kassa works with the Lightning Network and is taking on the charge, pouring energy into bringing awareness into more secluded regions. On this episode, we have the privilege of being joined by Kal as he discusses his work in Ethiopia and the broader narrative around Bitcoin in Africa. Kal uses remote efforts to empower niche populations through distributed currency, but the corruption and array of problems facing the country mean that regaining some agency through Bitcoin could mean real progress. Kal explains exactly how he envisages this happening, and the most urgent areas needing attention. Later in the episode, we get to pick his brain and dive deep into his long-term perspective on Bitcoin's role in Ethiopia and Africa at large. Make sure to join us for this illuminating conversation with Kal Kassa!
