About Satoshicentre

The Original Home of Honey Badger


The SatoshiCentre was founded in 2014 as a platform to create bitcoin awareness not only in Botswana but Africa in general.


The SatoshiCentre is one of the first bitcoin community centres in Africa. It is a hub for learning new developments in the bitcoin space, including both second layer technologies, like Lightning Network, and sidechains like Liquid. We aim to help develop a generation of bitcoiners in Botswana through education, conversation and start up incubation.

Casa Lightning Nodes

Alakanani was an invited speaker at CryptoSprings where her talk inspired Casa to donate five Lightning nodes to Satoshi Centre.


The growing adoption of bitcoin around the world, presents an immense opportunity to build a community of adopters, users, thinkers and coders in Botswana. Bitcoin is permissionless, so, unlike the legacy financial and monetary systems, all of Botswana is free to join. We should seize this once in a generation opportunity to participate. Nothing can stop us.
