Africrypt’s Founder and CEO, Raees Cajee first learned of Bitcoin in 2009 while watching the news with his father and ever since he’s been hooked.
Raees’ passion for cryptocurrency led him to begin mining ETH while still in school, but with the rapid growth of the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry he was soon building his own Artificial Intelligence models which developed into an AI driven trading system.
It’s this dynamic and innovative trading system that has fuelled Africrypt’s astronomical growth from a one-man operation running out of a bedroom to one of Africa’s largest and most successful AI trading companies in only a few years.

Many people believe Bitcoin to be very complicated, when in fact it’s a lot more simple and intuitive than what most people think. This series aims to help everyone get a grasp of the basics, and over time also present further learning opportunities for those that want to know more.
Bitcoin is often explained by comparing it to something specific people already know, but this is often what creates a lot of confusion. Bitcoin is a new technology that is unlike anything we have seen before, so a better way to think of it is as a combination of a few different things we are already used to:
Firstly, because it allows you to move money so easily, Bitcoin functions as a payment system, similar to bank transfers or credit cards, only a bit better.
Second, Bitcoin is in some sense similar to gold – that is why many people even refer to it as ‘digital gold’ or ‘Gold 2.0’. Think of it as using gold for money, except it also very easy to move.
Third, Bitcoin is like the internet in that no single person or entity controls it, so anyone can pretty much use it as they like. This gives it some very unique characteristics.
These three characteristics also reinforce one another, so they are all interwoven. But more on all of this in the next few sections. For now, just imagine what would happen if you took a big pot and threw in a credit card, a piece of gold, and a hint of ‘internet’ – mix it all up – and pull out a brand new compound – Bitcoin.
Many people wonder how the price of Bitcoin is calculated, but it’s important to remember that it works no different than it would with other currencies or objects. Let’s first look at how the prices of most things are derived – we can use oranges as an example. What is the price of an orange?
Well, it depends. As a starting point, one would derive the price of an orange based on two things: how much someone is trying to sell it for, and how much another person is trying to buy it for. If John wants to sell it for USD2.50 and Sarah is only prepared to pay USD2.00, there is no deal. But if they agree on a price that works for both, let’s say USD2.25, then the transaction will happen. If it’s winter there might be more people wanting to buy oranges, so the price will go up. Or if there is a drought the supply of oranges will become less, so more people are trying to buy less oranges, which can also drive the price up.
Bitcoin and other currencies are a bit different from oranges in that they are what is called ‘homogeneous’ – one dollar is identical to another dollar, just as one Bitcoin is the same as another. Oranges on the other hand can vary in size and quality. All this means is that it’s easier to come up with a price of a currency or Bitcoin. Once again, just what a buyer and seller will agree on.
Many people might not realise that other currencies work exactly the same – if you are holding a coin or note of your own local currency in your hand, at any given point in time there are millions of people buying and selling your local currency, so while you might observe it as stable, it’s value actually continuously changes. When you want to exchange it for another currency at a currency desk, let’s say for USD, one day you pay 10 local currency to a dollar, the next day maybe 11 or 9. Bitcoin works exactly the same way – you can just think of it as a currency other than the one you are used to.
Ethereum aims to make everyday life more efficient and cost effective by automating everyday processes and removing middlemen from the systems we use. This could be to the legal system, the financial system, computer systems or more.
For example, let’s assume John has the following documents stored on the Ethereum blockchain: his identity documents, his last will and testament, and the title deed for his house. We assume, the day John dies, his certificate of death is also uploaded to the blockchain.
The processes that must occur to transfer John’s estate are admin intensive because there are several parties involved that are often slow and opaque. This may include legal professionals, the government, tax authorities and the property registrar.
However, because all these documents are stored on the Ethereum blockchain, something interesting is possible. Once John’s death certificate is officially issued and uploaded to the blockchain, John’s last will and testament can be put into action.
Assuming John bequeathed his house to his next of kin, ownership to the house can be transferred to his next of kin automatically by the Ethereum network. Therefore, John’s next of kin will inherit John’s house exactly as John intended, without having to contact a legal professional.
This may sound overwhelming and scary but the amount of time and resources saved by not having to wait for John’s next of kin, legal professionals and the property registrar to come into contact with each other and prepare and execute this transaction is immense.
Many fascinating projects are being built but nothing like this works at scale at the moment. Many things need to fall in place for large scale adoption and it remains to be seen how instrumental Ethereum will be.
