Akoin, the cryptocurrency and DApp/App eco-system developed by artist and visionary Akon, has partnered with Roll, a revolutionary platform that enables creators to develop their own branded digital currency unique to their online presence. Roll calls this social money.
The partnership will work to supercharge US and Asian creators initially, before expanding to the African market next year. It will use Akoin’s strong network of connections to help creators launch their own social money through which they can nurture, grow and develop their communities.
Creators on Roll mint social money to own, control and coordinate the value they create…
If you live in a first-world country, there are some basic benefits you gain from your countries infrastructure that you probably don’t think about very often. Having an address, for example. There are 4 billion people around the world who have no physical address in their neighborhoods or towns.

“Our relationship with BitMinutes provides the cornerstone for how we achieve our shared vision for bringing financial inclusion to rising economies such as Africa; starting with prepaid minutes as a medium of exchange was a clear pathway for us given the store of value people in Africa already recognize there, and is the first step in bringing more users into our blockchain-based economy we’re developing at Akoin.” -Lynn Liss, Chief Operating Officer for Akoin
Our target demographic isn’t one that’s easily serviced. The Akoin Ecosystem is being built to accommodate those currently excluded from the digital economy. In order to create solutions for this demographic, we have to build them in a way that circumvents the current financial on-ramps and off-ramps, when it comes to creating and transferring value online. To facilitate their entry and exit into the Akoin Ecosystem, we’ve created pathways such as taking Prepaid Minutes or Fiat Currency to the Trusted Agent Network where the minutes or fiat can be converted into Akoin tokens for deposit in a users’ Akoin Wallet.
Akoin is a new cryptocurrency from visionary changemaker Akon and is the foundation of the Akoin Ecosystem.
