Bitboy Crypto recently interviewed Akon, real name, Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, and his team in a video discussing Akon’s dream of building a digital city in Senegal, Africa that utilizes his Akoin cryptocurrency.

Akon expressed how he aims to allow Akoin users to purchase his cryptocurrency with cell phone minutes, something that some people in the world are already using as a means to transact using their atomic swap platform.

Bitboy Crypto asked Akon, what countries are currently unbanked and how can Akoin help?

Akon explained he wants to help underdeveloped markets in various countries starting with the continent of Africa and later expanding to Latin America and India. Both Akon and Bitboy signified that the world is moving towards a “digitalization revolution.”

Akoin’s team member noted that the team has a number of other utility usecases for Akoin including an internet powered by World Mobile named Akoin Net, transacting through text message, and much more!

Akoin aims to bank the unbanked and connect the unconnected to build ecosystems and ways for users to improve their quality of life through blockchain technology.

The interview apart of the Blockdown 3.0 2020 virtual conference is one of Bitboy Cryto’s best yet. You don’t want to miss this discussion with music artist, entertainer, innovator, humanitarian, and philanthropist Akon.
