Another futuristic cryptocurrency city will be built in Africa, Senegalese-American star Akon has announced. The Ugandan government will give him land to build a new crypto city. The city will use Akon’s crypto-currency, similar to Akon’s City, a true $6 billion Wakanda currently under construction in Akon’s country.
Second city of Akon from Uganda
Senegalese-American star and philanthropist Akon, whose real name is Aliun Badara Thiam, last week announced his plans to build a second futuristic city in Africa. His home will be in Uganda.
His first crypto city, the $6 billion Akon City, is being built in his home country of Senegal. Akon referred to it as the real Wakanda and compared Akon City to the technologically advanced fictional African city in the blockbuster Black Panther.
A new crypto currency city, Akona, has received support from the Ugandan government. Isaac Musumba, Uganda’s Minister of State for Lands, Housing and Urban Development, told a press conference last week that the government would find a suitable piece of land of one square mile or more for Akon to build a new crypto city. The minister said:
A suitable site in Uganda of at least one square mile will be made available to him and his team to mobilize resources and investments, attract investors, manage the project and have a town.
According to local media, the new crypto city will use its own crypto currency, Stellar Akoin, similar to Akon’s Senegalese city project.
The Akona cryptocurrency is already being used by the Mwale Medical and Technology City (MMTC) in Kenya as a pilot project for Akona City. We plan to use Akoin exclusively by the end of 2021, Julius Mwale, MMTS’s chief investor, said in November.
When asked if Ugandans can afford to live in Akon’s futuristic city, the singer said: I know they will find a way to pay for it because it will motivate them ….. Ultimately, when you create an opportunity, people grow with that opportunity, people learn with that opportunity, people get motivated with that opportunity.
Akon also shared his broader vision, emphasizing that the continent is our destination. The singer wrote: To build a continent, we must come together as a people to make it happen:
My true calling is to develop Africa at all costs.
On the crypto city in Uganda, he said the idea is to use all the resources we have built up over the years and try to rebuild the country.
In particular, he stated: I think that access to information is one of the things that we lack in the larger countries and that we need to be properly trained not only in construction but also in property management and maintenance. The crypto city in Uganda is expected to be ready by 2036. concluded Akon:
We hope that everything goes according to plan, but if we can make progress with all the support we need, I think it’s a very achievable goal.
