The Goal has always been to empower people with permissionless money and Guide and show them the path to economic freedom. With Bitcoincash The future shines brightly with unrestricted growth, global adoption, innovation, and decentralised development.
## Bitcoin Cash Adoption is a Marathon, not a Sprint
- August 2021 after a successful Flipstarter of 84 BCH from the Community we Set out to Spread the word about Bitcoincash in Nigeria, at the time Cryptocurrencies were just starting to get the attention, of people the government, Nigeria is unlike other countries, out there, people already are having misconceptions about Cryptocurriences because Millions of people out there have no idea what it is or its use and how it will benefit them, with the government banning its activity it made all our previous efforts in vain, we have to strategies our Approaches towards the Adoption, *Bottom top Model*
- Starting Big with Educating People
For Millions of People to use Bitcoincash they have to understand the Financial Freedom and Decentralization it comes with.
We’ve Organized Educational Seminars on Bitcoincash at Several Federal and State Universities in the Country Targeting Youths.
Local Meetups in several Cities, Meetups are an effective way for Bitcoincash lovers to come together and share ideas and information.
We are able to expand Bitcoincash local meetups to 8 States In Nigeria.
We’ve introduced Bitcoincash Hangouts which happens monthly to Newbies people who have no idea what bitcoin cash is, this hangout includes a demo of getting started with Bitcoincash.
>In spreading Education wide in the country we've partnered with several Crypto schools Such as Bitkova Academy Crypto Gizt , through them we are able to reach thousands of people who want to know more about Bitcoincash
We are able to collaborate with several organisations who want to know about the blockchain industry we took advantage of those opportunities and are able to introduce them to Bitcoincash some include the Nigerian Police force Academy, Governments institutions, Banks Officials etc
With these efforts we are able to cover more than 60% in terms of Pushing Education in the Country we are happy to have been recognised by the Siban and NITDA as one of the Community Pushing Crypto Currency Education in Nigeria.
As we have Planned on Partnering with the *Ministry of Digital Economy and Communications on Education in 2023.*
- One of our Goals was to have Physical space in the country where we will pivot the activities of the community we've launched BCH HUB an open tech space powered by Bitcoincash

>Adoption: our goal for Bitcoincash is to be used as money, we are able to get people to use it as people transacting people using it via platforms that accept Bitcoincash .
People will use whatever works, and Bitcoin cash works, Nigerian Government and Policies have forced people to exchange value via Cryptocurrencies, International Payments : Most people in Nigeria can not transact international above 20$ using their credit cards, and for most of the fintech platforms like PayPal, cash app etc don't work in Nigeria either,
- We've guided thousands of people on how to transact with Bitcoincash, introduced them to platforms where they can earn and also use bch ,
