The world may be experiencing a different Africa as Akon set to launch Africa’s first cryptocurrency-Akoin.
The Senegal-born star Akon who has a passion for the progress of Africa, in general, will be launching a new cryptocurrency called Akoin that will be available to the public in few days with high hopes it will help the growth of the continent. This is not the first time the talented superstar musician is enhancing the progress of Africa; his lighting project is also bringing solar power to Africa.
“I think that blockchain and crypto could be the savior for Africa in many ways because it brings the power back to the people and brings the security back into the currency system and also allows the people to utilize it in ways where they can advance themselves and not allow government to do those things that are keeping them down,” Akon stated.
What is Akoin?
According to www.akoin.io, Akoin is a new virtual currency birthed by a visionary change maker Akon and is the foundation of the AKoin Ecosystem. The cryptocurrency is a unique global project that provides an abundance of digital and real-life platforms. Also, experiences that offer the opportunity and inclusion for youth entrepreneurs by giving consumers the chance to buy hold and spend cryptocurrency right from their smartphone through a suite of blockchain-based apps.
Furthermore, the AKoin Ecosystem unravels the potential of the world’s largest emerging economy through the creation of a stable currency and revenue-prone, innovative opportunities that facilitate and support youth entrepreneurship, growth, and economic stability across Africa and the world.
As you now know, the AKoin is created by Akon the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling artist, producer, philanthropist and now an entrepreneur, who successfully started and grew the Akon Lighting Africa to provide scaled solar power solutions all through the eighteen countries to date in Africa. The AKoin ecosystem’s exclusive suite of growth-building and sustainability crypto-powered apps provide instant and ongoing new revenue-generating opportunities to stimulate micro-exchange and financial stability.
Although the opportunities to buy, hold, and spend the AKoin to power youth entrepreneurs on the digital platform and irrespective of the place is in the world are vast, users can also engage with the AKoin in a whole new way when they visit the real-life Wakanda of Akon Crypto City.
The success of this crypto coin is already visible to all, Akon crypto city will be the first of its kind, one hundred percent crypto-powered municipality with AKoin at the center of transactional life. Furthermore, this futuristic city, is built on 2,000 acres of land given to Akon from the President of Senegal, and is within five minutes of the new international airport, close to the coast and a short drive from Dakar, which is the capital city of Senegal, which also happens to be the homeland of Akon.
Akon crypto city blends are leading Smart City planning designs with a blank canvas for “cryptonising” our daily human, and business exchanges, with the goal of inventing a radical new way of existence.
Akon throws more light on AKoin and politics?
“It’s gonna be entertaining; it’s gonna be something worth watching,” he explained. “I’m going to go after Trump and Kanye will get offended because he likes Trump and he’s going to go after me. Then I’m going to go after Kanye and then Trump’s going to get offended because he likes Kanye and he’s going to go after me. And the debate stage will be set where it’s all about me. It’s perfect, a masterplan” he said
When asked the technical aspect behind AKoin, he stated, “Asked technical questions about the blockchain, Akon continued, “I come up with the concepts and let the geeks figure it out.”
The famous singer, who has previously stated he’s thinking about getting into politics, said he is ready to take on Kanye West and not just President Donald Trump, in 2020.
“I actually really want Kanye to run,” Akon said.
He already has the debate planned.
Akon explained further, “I’m going to come in with a team so crazy, man, it’s all going down. I’m not holding my tongue. The way I look at it, win or lose, at least I get the movement going, I get the conversation going. Someone has to tell Trump to his face, what it really is, no political conversation, no language that we don’t understand, like ‘No motherf**ker, you’re a liar.”
The Superstar musician and entrepreneur claimed that he is not scared of him, and he would invite him into the ring. “You know what? Matter of fact, let’s just go in the ring, Pay-Per-View … you guys can decide whether it’s going to be a boxing match or MMA. Someone’s got to defeat the bully.” He continued
In conclusion, whether Akon has “personal beef” for Trump or Kanye West no one really knows, but one thing is sure, Akon is painting Africa in a different light other than pain, starvation, bloodshed the continent is known for. Furthermore, the world is going to see more of his plans for Senegal and Africa in general.
