Ricki Allardice - The Bitcoin Tokoloshe

Paratus chats to Ricki Allardice, a Bitcoin enthusiast and subject matter expert, about the practicalities to adopting and using the cryptocurrency. How easy or difficult is it for the average person to buy and sell Bitcoin? Is it safe and secure? And what are the privacy implications thereof?

In the post-lockdown world, with all its economic and social problems, cryptocurrency like Bitcoin will certainly become more relevant than ever before. Whether or not it will actually turn into a parallel payment system rivalling the use of traditional fiat currency remains to be seen. However, it would be foolish to simply dismiss it out of hand.
