Imagine a place where you can buy and sell Bitcoin with ease and where you can learn the secrets of this financial revolution. In Dakar, this is now a reality as Bitique opened its doors on July 29, 2023, offering Senegalese easy access to the Bitcoin market. With a passionate team of bitcoiners at its head, Bitique wishes to become the reference for Bitcoin exchanges in Senegal.
The name Bitique is a tribute to the neighborhood shops that are an integral part of Dakar culture. The founders of Bitic, Mouhamadou Kouta and Sébastien Ramos, are already well known for launching the Dakar Bitcoin Days forum last December, bringing together a community of Bitcoin enthusiasts across Senegal. Based on this experience, they decided to take it a step further by creating a physical space for people to buy and sell Bitcoin with ease.
An Ideal Location
Located in the heart of downtown Dakar, near the Petersen market and an agency of the BCEAO central bank, Bitique has chosen a strategic location to welcome curious investors and novices wishing to discover the world of Bitcoin. Even before being Bitique, the place was already a multi-services, which makes it a perfect choice to become an essential center for Bitcoin transactions in the sector.
Accessibility to Bitcoin for All
Bitique wants to show the general public that access to Bitcoin can be simple and accessible to everyone. You can go to the ATM and buy or sell Bitcoin with no minimum amount required. Bitique’s commission fee, set at 5%, is reasonable and supports the platform’s infrastructure and services. Bitique offers two options for Bitcoin exchanges: on-chain or via the Lightning Network.
For those who want to learn more about Bitcoin and cryptocurrency, Bitique also offers paid training. For a modest amount of 10,000 CFA Francs, or about 15 euros, those interested can participate in a 2 to 3 hour training session on Bitcoin. This training will allow them to better understand the technical and economic aspects of Bitcoin and to acquire the skills necessary to navigate this constantly evolving universe.
With the opening of Bitique, Dakar now has a tool that promises to develop the use of Bitcoin among Senegalese. Thanks to a dedicated team of bitcoiners and a convenient location, Bitique is destined to become a mainstay of the Bitcoin community in Dakar. Whether you’re a cryptocurrency enthusiast or just curious to learn more about Bitcoin, Bitique is the place to buy, sell, and learn. So, if you’re around, don’t hesitate to come and visit the Bitique team!
