Bernard Parah is a Tech entrepreneur who is very passionate about solving monetary difficulties using Bitcoin technology. He is the CEO of Bitnob, a technology and financial services company that lets users buy, save and invest in bitcoin. With Bitnob, African users can save their money from inflation, and have access to it from all over the world.


Bitnob offers a ton of other options, like loans, Dollar-Cost-Averaging plans, and many much more. It also operates aย Bitcoin Lightning Network integration which promises free, instant, non-reversible remittances of any size to and from the United States, Nigeria, and Ghanaย - a system that could disrupt and improve how money is transferred across the world.


In this episode of Founders Connect, I sit with Bernard. He shares with me his passion for Bitcoin, the benefits Bitnob offers and the benefits of a cryptocurrency-focused economy.
