BitMari: Bitcoin Based Remittance Startup for Africa

Every year, African send 45 billions dollars back home, to support their family and create jobs.

Unfortunately, 8 to 15% of that money is lost to transfer fees, which represents more than 5 billions dollars.

That’s a lot of money which goes to companies like Western Union or Moneygram, instead of helping build more hospitals, schools or alleviate poverty in our villages.

A friend of mine, Sinclair Skinner, came out with the idea of a remittance system based on Bitcoin, the crypto currency.

People in the diaspora could open a Bitcoin account, then make a transfer to any local bank in Africa, and their family in Africa would get real cash, with almost zero fee.

BitMari would start soon with Zimbabwe as first market. But before that, they need your support.

They are offering rare, off the market, old Zimbabwean notes in exchange of your backing to their crowd funding project here:

This is a real innovation for our community. Go support them!

For any question, contact brother @Sinclair, and to back the campaign go here:
