Akon Launches With His Own Cryptocurrency "Akoin"

Posted at July 11th, 2018 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in Dance Music, Entertainment, Featured, News

2.000 acres of land provided by the Senegalese President will be turned into a cryptocurrency farm by the former R&B king. Akon has taken a sabbatical from music and seems to be trying his hand at world peace through development in his native African land and some shrewd investments.

 

 

Akon is definitely doing a lot of good in the tech industry.

“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,” he explained.

The cryptocurrency is termed as “Akoin”.
