After Senegal, Akon will build a second sustainable city in Uganda

My list


The American rapper of Senegalese origin Akon has announced the construction of a second Akon City in Uganda. This new futuristic and sustainable city project comes at a time when Akon City in Senegal has entered its construction phase at a cost of 6 billion dollars.

While his ties to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni are causing controversy in Senegal, Akon has announced a new futuristic and sustainable city project in Uganda. The Ugandan Akon City. The Senegalese-American RnB singer wants to launch a new pharaonic project in East Africa. The Ugandan government, through its Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Isaac Musumba, has promised to make a 260-hectare site available for the construction of this futuristic city.

As in Senegal, the economy of this future smart city will be based on Akoin. This is a cryptocurrency based on the Stellar Consensus Protocol (SCP) and the Akoin Utility token, which uses Atomic Swap technology to facilitate exchanges with other major crypto-currencies, its partners’ alternative currencies and fiat currencies (such as the Ugandan shilling, the CFA franc, the dollar or the euro, editor’s note).
