BitX at the BitHub launch in South Africa

BitX attended the BitHub inauguration event in Cape Town on 11 June 2015 with two of our engineers presenting on what Bitcoin is and how BitX fits into the international Bitcoin ecosystem.

BitHub is aimed at supporting development and innovation in the digital currency space and helps educate people on the benefits, explore the regulatory issues and help foster general acceptance of crypto-currencies.

For those looking to learn more about future BitHub events or those interested in joining their startup incubation space can reach out directly to the Cape Innovation and Technology Initiative (CiTi).
