About Akoin (AKN)
Akoin is a cryptocurrency utility token, powered by a marketplace of tools and services to fuel entrepreneurs, business owners, and social activists. Akoin aims to help connect and engage across the rising economies of Africa and beyond by minimizing barriers to entry for entrepreneurs and small businesses in Africa, while simultaneously providing a gateway for global brands currently struggling to access this demographic.
“Young entrepreneurs in Africa are facing real hardships in creating and building businesses — problems that have hampered sustained development for too long.”
