‘COINING IT’ FOR DE­VEL­OP­MENT

IN DE­CEM­BER, the Afro Foun­da­tion, a non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tion based in Geneva, Switzer­land, launched the Afro, a pan-african cryp­tocur­rency ded­i­cated to growth and de­vel­op­ment in Africa.

It is hoped that the Afro will pro­vide a re­li­able and se­cure so­lu­tion suited to Africa’s de­vel­op­ment chal­lenges. To mark the launch, the foun­da­tion’s Founders Com­mit­tee has mounted an aware­ness cam­paign to en­able users to find out about and ex­per­i­ment with the Afro. The first 200 000 users will re­ceive a wal­let con­tain­ing 50 Afros. To ob­train an Afro wal­let and ac­quire Afro coins, visit https://afro­foun­da­tion.org
