Former Kipochi CTO Explains Controversial M-Pesa Deal ...

Bitcoin in Morocco?

A friend asked me about using Bitcoin in Morocco and I thought I'd ask here. I heard about buying Bitcoin via your cellphone company, probably here, but I can't find the original post(s). I found Kipochi and was wondering if anyone has had experience with this or other similar companies in Africa?
Are there any direct-deposit options or what other options other than direct sell are there to cash your Bitcoin there? It seems bips.me would work there, I'd like to know if anyone is using it in Morocco.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or ideas to go about this.

Xem-btc hasn't moved yet. Chart is screaming for going up . However, I can't predict how fast it will go up. Can we ask the Japanese girls when Xem will speed up ? Als Bitcoin-Befürworter habe ich sicherlich die Aufregung um Bitcoin und die Wertübertragung. Es ist jedoch wichtig, dass die Wahrheit nicht falsch dargestellt wird. Diese falsche Darstellung ist wahrscheinlich auf die Integration von Kipochi mit M-PESA zurückzuführen, die in Kenia eine große Anzahl an Nutzern aufweist. M-PESA-Abonnenten stehen bei 10, 232, 805 aktiven mobilen Benutzern ... However, the bitcoin integration of Kopo Kopo supported by Kipochi quickly escalated throughout mainstream media, alluring the attention of the bitcoin community and companies involved with Vodafone. Amid the controversy surrounding M-Pesa and Kipochi, the Kenyan government also issued an official notificataion to Kipochi, regarding their bitcoin services and operations. Kipochi did not charge anything for the transfer and made Bitcoin easy to use. The only cost associated with the transfer was the inherent bitcoin transaction fees – a flat 25Ksh fee. What’s more, with Kipochi, money could be transferred to and from anywhere around the world i.e. local and cross border remittances. limit my search to r/Bitcoin. use the following search parameters to narrow your results: subreddit:subreddit find submissions in "subreddit" author:username find submissions by "username" site:example.com find submissions from "example.com" url:text search for "text" in url selftext:text search for "text" in self post contents self:yes (or self:no) include (or exclude) self posts nsfw:yes (or ...
