    Nigeria's population and Africa's acceptance for crypocurrencies would seem like a good place to start. But Nigeria has a very poor reputation for anything internet or non-physical commodities based enterprise. (I still receive emails from some Nigerian Prince.) My concern would be the reputation being diminished by the mention of Nigeria. A better venture would be to wait for the Singapore conference or a US conference. The restrictions are harder, but the vetting process gives more credibility to the operation as a whole.
