We host free, meetups which are open for anyone to attend. The purpose of these meetups is primarily to provide the general public with a platform where they can ask any questions which they may have about Bitcoin, or our project. It also serves as a great opportunity for fellow Bitcoiners to get together!
We welcome people who are completely new to Bitcoin, including business owners who might be curious to find out more about how they might themselves accept Bitcoin in exchange for their goods and services.
We are proud supporters and sponsors of the Swellendam Spurs, a local NPO youth-upliftment project, whom we have chosen to assist with outreach and awareness efforts.
We are a Bitcoin-only education platform. We do not offer trading or investment advice. We encourage people to focus on learning more about Bitcoin, and not get distracted by its countless imitators, or the latest ‘crypto’ and investment schemes.
The Swellendam Spurs soccer club is a nonprofit program which provides free soccer training and facilities for the youth of the Railton community. The project is run by volunteers who work tirelessly to help uplift the children of Railton in Swellendam, South Africa.
The club was founded in 2018 by Mr. Isaac Kiewiets. It was formally registered as an NPO in early 2023, with the assistance of four additional volunteers from the community, who together made up the rest of the Swellendam Spurs board at that time.
Host to more than 80 children, comprising 6 different teams, this program operates after school hours from Monday to Thursday for soccer practice, as well as on weekends for competitive matches or social games.

What is Ubuntu?
Sometimes translated as “I am because we are”, or “humanity towards others”, the Ubuntu philosophy asserts that it is community which gives human beings their humanity, and that a person is a person through other people.
The African Journal of Social Work defines Ubuntu as:
A collection of values and practices that people of Africa or of African origin view as making people authentic human beings. While the nuances of these values and practices vary across different ethnic groups, they all point to one thing – an authentic individual human being is part of a larger and more significant relational, communal, societal, environmental and spiritual world.
