A supplier of Bitcoin mining hardware from South Africa, Bitmart, is about to open its first retail store. The store will stock software components, ASICs, GPU miners and other relevant hardware. It will also stock cryptocurrency merchandise such as t-shirts, caps, hardware wallets and etc. Now miners in South Africa can just walk into a shop and pay on the spot.

This shop is willing to provide educational seminars in order to create a cryptocurrency community. Bitmart will accept EFT (a South African internet banking payment transfer service), credit cards, and, of course, all major cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum as a method of payment.

Bitmart will offer business owners the additional services such as mining farm development, deployment and management, container-based mining solutions, and large-scale deployment. It will also install equipment in place to accept Bitcoin as payment.

It is important to note that South Africa is not the only place where users can buy equipment for mining. For example, a large electronics mall in Singapore has at least five mining hardware shops.
