Akon Plans to Build New City in Senegal With its Own Cryptocurrency Called AKoin

Former musician, Akon, announced recently that he's launching his own cryptocurrency called AKoin. He plans to build a new city in Senegal that uses AKoin as the base of its entire economy. He says this will be the "saviour of Africa".




He made the announcement at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

There's a website for Akoin already: https://www.akoin.io/

He calls the proposed Akon Crypto City a "real-life Wakanda" and claims the President of Senegal has already gifted him land to build his new city.
