Akon Is Building A Real-Life 'Wakanda' In Senegal
Wakanda is leaving our screens and becoming a reality.
Senegal-born singer, Akon has launched a cryptocurrency called AKoin, which will be available for sale in two weeks, with hopes it will further help Africa.
He is also planning the Akon Crypto City. It is a first-of-its-kind 100% crypto-based city with Akoin as its currency.
According to the website, Akon Crypto City follows a Smart City blueprint with Akoin being used in the daily human and business exchanges.
The aim is towards inventing a radical new way of existence.
The 2000-acre futuristic city is currently being constructed just outside Senegal’s capital Dakar.
It sounds like the fictitious country of Wakanda from the popular Black Panther movie.
The land was gifted to Akon from the President of Senegal.
