Bitcoin Cash House Ghana has announced they’ve found a liquidity provider for converting between BCH and Ghanaian cedi, and are now preparing to furnish their building and move in, preparing for official launch on March 1. A new read.cash post from organizer Kousha detailed the status of the project and also initiated a small fundraiser for internet setup which has already surpassed its goal as of Tuesday. BCH House Ghana was inspired by the already operational BCH House Venezuela.
Cash House Movement Grows
Though not officially affiliated with BCH House Venezuela, the Ghana group’s implementation of the concept wanted to use the same name as a show of solidarity and community with the first version, and both have received support from Bitcoin.com. The project is free and decentralized, as concept creator Roberto Garcia notes in BCH House Venezuela’s recent update, which encourages anyone with the will to open their own local office to reach out for assistance and do so. BCH House Venezuela has been active since November last year.
Kousha, ambassador for the Ghana project, is located in Heidelberg, Germany, and is working with “man on the ground” Mohammed Mustapha Yakubum, who can be seen posing with the BCH House Ghana signboard in this article’s featured picture. The goals listed in Kousha’s update post on the crypto hub are four-fold: tutoring payment partners, “creating and listing cashaccounts for merchants based on location,” designing a website and map for customers on bchghana.org, and “Hosting a meetup to celebrate the official start of operations,” which is set for March 1.
