A Brief History of Bitcoin in Cambodia
Andreas M. Antonopoulos visited Cambodia in February of 2017. Prior to that, Cambodia had been a place of little bitcoin activity, with a few exceptions. That is forgivable considering Cambodia’s size and economic standing.
Things are changing fast in 2017, however, as the community is growing and new bitcoin businesses are beginning to explore the cryptocurrency. We may look back on this year as a watershed for crypto in the kingdom, and one catalyzing event will stand out the most.
Andreas M. Antonopoulos Visits the Kingdom
On February 17th, 2017, Andreas M. Antonopoulos held a public speaking event in Phnom Penh as part of his Asian speaking tour. The country was fortunate to host him. He was gracious with his time as he addressed a crowd of about 70 people. He followed up with a Q&A period and informal conversation with the audience. Afterwards, some of the crowd joined him for dinner at a nearby restaurant. A good time was had by all.
Posted below are some of the pictures from that event. Enjoy!
