TOA: Updates & Next Steps!

An update for our Tokens of Appreciation (TOA) campaign donors

2 min readAug 30, 2021


To our Token of Appreciation (TOA) campaign donors, we’d like to provide you with an update of where we’ve been and where we’re going.

We rolled out a private pilot program of our Akoin Wallet in the Mwale Medical and Technology City (MMTC) and began testing this wallet with several of our Ambassadors in a first of many activation opportunities being offered exclusively to TOA campaign donors.

This private pilot program allowed us to identify an important need to build a brand new and improved, publicly available wallet in order to best onboard, support and offer empowering DApp-based tools and services to new users separate from those in the MMTC private city launch.

We have begun work scoping this new wallet effort, which will include full DApp eco-system access and streamlined functionality, providing you with massive learning, earning, spending and savings opportunities directly from within the wallet.

Whereas our MMTC private city wallet was built specifically for locally customized functionality, this new publicly available and enhanced Akoin Wallet will provide access to more of Africa and the globe, with its footprint stretching far beyond Mwale and integrating more broadly effective tools and services within the wallet.

In addition, this new wallet will have access to enroll in our new AkoinCard which enables individuals to make payments online using Akoin (AKN) with any of the 37 million merchants in over 210 countries and territories that accept Mastercard. This will massively extend the ability to use Akoin for our community!

We plan to share additional updates in the next month in terms of a) when we will be able to onboard donors into this new wallet, and b) confirming what reward you will receive for this activation of testing and utilizing the new wallet.

We hope this excites you as much as it does us. Your donations during the Token of Appreciation campaign made possible our rollout of the Akoin token, our launch on a major exchange and our ability to run a pilot program in MMTC.

We greatly look forward to all TOA campaign donors being the very first people to enroll in our public Akoin Wallet, and for you to be rewarded in Akoin tokens for this activation effort!
