Akon Plans To Launch Private Crypto ‘Akoin’
Popular American rapper and entrepreneur, Akon, recently announced his plans to launch a new cryptocurrency called Akoin and to create an entire Crypto City in Senegal, with hopes to improve living conditions in Africa.
Akon’s new large project
He spoke about his new plans in Cannes, France, during the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, during which he stated that he believes blockchain tech and cryptocurrencies hold great potential for helping African citizens. According to him, helping cryptos find a foothold in Africa means introducing a more secure currency, which would help people advance themselves and attain independence from the government.
His plans include the launch of a new cryptocurrency called Akoin, which will be the primary currency in the even bigger project that he has in mind – the creation of Akon Crypto City.
Akon for president?
Akon’s plans do not stop there as he already plans to run for the US president. According to him, he is ready and willing to run against both Donald Trump and Kanye West, who also decided to try and reach the White House.
Additionally, Akon stated that he would like to invite the current US President, Donald Trump, to an MMA contest, or a boxing match.
