South Africa is, without doubt, one of the most advanced countries in Africa — if not the most advanced. The South African country has also become a popular hotbed for the digital currency market. In fact, it is considered by many to be the next frontier in Bitcoin.

According to the cryptocurrency exchange Paxful, South Africans recently traded more than $2.5 million worth of bitcoin in a single month.

Technological literacy is quite widespread in Africa. And since Bitcoin is based on blockchain technology, it has triggered a lot of interest on the continent, especially among the youthful population. Per Google Trends data, South Africa is ranked as fourth among all countries in the world for the frequency with which its citizens searched the keyword “Bitcoin” over the last year. Countries like Nigeria, Ghana and Kenya, in addition to South Africa, have also demonstrated massive interest in bitcoin. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is reportedly planning a visit to Africa to explore crypto opportunities thanks to the widespread bitcoin adoption there.
